(dedicated to Ronnie Landfield, my teacher in New York City)
A corkscrew was used as a murder weapon in Brooklyn, New York in February 2008 when 55-year-old Murat St. Hilaire was stabbed in the head. His 11-year old daughter found him lying face up on the bedroom floor And came outside, saying: 'Daddy's dead! Daddy's dead! Somebody stabbed him!’. The corkscrew was still embedded in his temple.
