A 56-year-old man accused of beating his roommate to death with a sledgehammer and a claw hammer was arrested Monday morning.
Franklin Paul Crow was charged with homicide in the weekend death of Kenneth Matthews, 58. Crow is being held without bail in the Marion County Jail.
Authorities with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office said the suspect beat the victim in the head with a sledgehammer in their Southeast 95th Street Road home after getting upset there was no toilet tissue in the home.
Capt. Thomas Bibb said Crow initially denied his involvement in the crime, at first blaming it on a local motorcycle gang.
It’s my understanding that the biker gang known as Hell’s Angels routinely commits murder over a lack of lavatory paper. They only break your arms if you don’t put the paper on the spool.
