Exploding lava lamp kills Kent man


KENT, Wash. -- A 24-year-old man who placed a lava lamp on a hot stovetop was killed when it exploded and sent a shard of glass into his heart, police said.

"Why on earth he was heating a lava lamp on the stove, we don't know," Kent Police spokesman Paul Petersen said Monday.

Phillip Quinn's parents found his body in his Kent trailer home at about 8 p.m. Sunday. They went to check on him after his girlfriend reported that she couldn't get in touch with him.

The King County Medical Examiner's office estimated the time of his death at 2 p.m. Sunday.

After the lamp exploded, Quinn apparently stumbled into his bedroom, where he died, Petersen said.

Police found no evidence of drug or alcohol use.

I read an article in the newspaper that said; you can get high from lava lamp fumes.

I think the line "found his body in his trailer home" says buckets about him and his strange proclivities.

The idea that he even had a lava lamp to abuse thusly says a lot to me...by the way can someone help me get the wheels off'n my new home?
Well, if you won't kill me the least you can do is keep me drunk!
