    OK - Denver St Clair, 58, murdered, Pottawatomie County, 21 Dec 2013

    Man killed by underwear suffocation in Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma. (newsok.com)
    MCLOUD – Law officers have arrested a McLoud man in the death of another man who was suffocated with his own underwear and struck in the head.

    Mike Booth told a local TV reporter. Davis reportedly told investigators he gave his stepfather, Denver Lee St. Clair, 58, an “atomic wedgie.”

    St. Clair died on the evening of Dec. 21, said Amy Elliott, Oklahoma state medical examiner's spokeswoman. The cause of death has been determined to be from blunt force trauma to the head and asphyxiation. The death has been ruled a homicide, Elliott said Wednesday.

    “I'd never seen this before, but when we first looked at our victim seeing the waistband of his underwear was around his neck,” Pottawatomie County Sheriff Mike Booth said.

    Booth said Davis told investigators that he went to his stepfather's residence and his stepfather “jumped him.”

    A McLoud man accused of fighting with his stepfather and giving him an “atomic wedgie” that allegedly led to asphyxiation has been bound over for trial on a first-degree murder charge.

    Brad Lee Davis, 34, of McLoud, appeared in Pottawatomie County District Court Thursday for his preliminary hearing, where several witnesses testified.

    Davis is accused of causing the death of his stepfather, Denver St. Clair, 58, by striking him about the face and head with force and violence on Dec. 21. Charges allege Davis asphyxiated St. Clair by pulling the elastic band from St. Clair’s underwear over his head.

    The first witness to take the stand was James Allen Howell, a longtime family friend. Howell said he hung out at St. Clair's house growing up. Howell said Davis and St. Clair always seemed to get along with each other.

    Howell testified he got a text from Davis on December 21, 2013, the night of the homicide, saying Davis was going to "f$&!" Denver up." Howell said he texted Davis not to do it because it was "not worth it." Howell testified the next call he received was Davis saying "help me, help me, help me."

    Howell said when he arrived at the house located at 4 Shadow Lake Drive near McLoud, he found St. Clair on the ground in a pool of blood and Davis yelling, "help me" over and over again.

    It may have been your regular cotton underwear, but pulled that tightly over someone's head and neck could smush (yes scientific term, lol) up their nose and mouth and suffocate them... really I'm just guessing here, but it makes sense in my mind.
    HOPING I CAN HELP
    but, what if .... ?

    I admit I've never worn underwear on my head, but I'm breathing through my T-shirt as I type this. The tighter I draw the fabric, the easier it is to breathe through it.

    Of course, I don't have a head wound...
