An atomic wedgie murder has been cited this week in the state of Oklahoma, where a 33-year-old is accused of killing his stepfather through an extreme “atomic wedgie,” where he suffocated the man with his own underwear. The suspect was said to be drunk at the time of the alleged murder when a fight broke out between the two family members. Reuters reveals what details are known on this headshaking story this Thursday, Jan 9, 2013.

The atomic wedgie murder is set against Brad Lee Davis of Oklahoma. The 33-year-old man has been charged with holding his 58-year-old stepfather’s underwear over his neck long enough to suffocate him. According to the police report, the incident occurred in the middle of a family fight where both individuals were drunk at the stepfather’s house east of Oklahoma City.

Law enforcement officials placed Davis under arrest this Tuesday. As stated in a recently released affidavit on the so-called atomic wedgie murder, the suspect "grabbed St. Clair's underwear and gave him an 'atomic wedgie.' Davis allegedly pulled the elastic waistband of St. Clair's underwear over his head and around his neck."

Amy Elliott, the local spokeswoman for the county medical examiner, confirmed that the man’s cause of death was due to blunt force trauma and then asphyxiation. Police officers have added that both Davis and his family member (stepfather Denver St. Clair) had been drinking heavily back in late Dec., when St. Clair started to badmouth his wife, Davis’ own mother.

Criminal investigators noted in their report that St. Clair’s elastic waistband as part of his underwear had been stretched all the way over his head, and then been used to strangle and finally suffocate him, as evidenced by ligature marks wound around the victim’s neck. The atomic wedgie murder case also yielded blood spatter in the living room and in the kitchen, suggesting that a weapon may have been used to injure the man via blunt force trauma before the killing.

“The 33-year-old Davis was being held in Pottawatomie County jail without bond. His lawyer has not been made immediately available for comment at this point in time.”
