Some Tea with Your Shooting

Police were looking for Tammy Sexton's husband because they had a restraining order to give him - one which told him to stay away from his wife. However, they didn't find Donald Ray Sexton before he got to his wife. As a relative ran to a neighbor's house to call police, Donald Ray Sexton shot his wife point-blank in the head, then went outside and shot himself.

But when cops got to the house, Tammy Sexton answered the door holding a rag. "What's going on?" she asked. She made herself a cup of tea and offered the policeman something to drink.

Apparently, the .380-gauge bullet passed between the lobes of her brain without causing serious damage. A neurosurgeon confirmed that there is a small place where a missile could pass without causing major damage, but "It would be rare."
