Atomic wedgie murder: Oklahoma man kills stepfather with high school prank

One would not think that an atomic wedgie could actually be an element of murder. Then again, some may not even know what an atomic wedgie is in the first place. Reuters reported on Jan. 8, 2014, that a 33-year-old man from Oklahoma has actually been charged with killing his stepfather in what is being known as the atomic wedgie murder.

Brad Lee Davis has indeed been charged with murder in the death of 58-year-old Denver St. Clair, his stepfather. It appears as if a drunken family fight simply turned deadly.

After Davis was arrested on Tuesday of this week, the Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office issued an arrest affidavit that stated:

He (Davis) "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."

St. Clair's cause of death was listed as asphyxiation and blunt force trauma by Amy Elliott, a spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Medical Examiner.

The fight happened on Dec. 21, 2013, and it escalated when St. Clair began to speak badly about his wife, who is Davis' mother. It was then that Davis stretched St. Clair's elastic underwear waistband over his head.

That move by Davis ended up leaving ligature marks around his neck. Investigators said that blood splatter was found in the kitchen and other rooms.
