Poor Sam Mazzola. When it comes to making weird news, this guy's way up the charts.
It started back in August when Mazzola's pet bear mauled a 24-year-old named Brent Kandra to death. Yes, his pet bear. Mazzola owned four tigers, a lion, eight bears and 12 wolves when he filed for bankruptcy in May.
This time it's Mazzola's death that has won him the spotlight. Apparently, Mazzola was found dead in his home last Sunday. But as you can expect, it was how he died that caught our attention.
It seems it's another case of kinky sex gone tragically wrong. When Mazzola's body was discovered, it was chained face down to a waterbed with a leather mask over his head. They're saying he choked to death on a sex toy during a consensual sex act, and have ruled out suicide or homicide. Police believe someone helped Mazzola with the bondage, but left before he died, and are calling it an “unattended death.” Sad, but we’ll expect to see him nominated for a Darwin Award.
