Or so it would seem.
One of the many things I enjoy about blogging is that, unlike reporting, I can make assumptions. And I’m assuming Gary Gaudet had a sad life.
Crimes and the criminals who commit them mostly come and go in bulk, but Gary Gaudet of East Hartford was different. He just couldn’t seem to get it right.
We first reported on him last October, when he fell asleep on the job. He was trying to steal a catalytic converter.
His career came to an untimely end this week, when the minivan he was trying to relieve of its catalytic converter slipped off the jack, and crushed him.
I fixated on his mug shot when I saw it, and decided he’d had a sad life. I hope his next one, if there is such a thing, is better.
