A bizarre atomic wedgie murder happened near Oklahoma City when a 33-year-old man viciously attacked his stepfather. Brad Lee Davis, 58, has been charged with murder after allegedly killing Denver St. Clair, 58, on Dec. 21.

Reuters reports via Yahoo News on Jan. 8 that the "atomic wedgie" resulted in St. Clair suffocating on his own underwear.

A drunken family fight got heated when St. Clair supposedly spoke badly about his wife, who was Davis' mother. Davis was arrested Tuesday for the atomic wedgie murder after he was believed to have "pulled the elastic waistband of St.Clair's underwear over his head and around his neck," according to the affidavit.

St. Claire's cause of death was asphyxiation and blunt force trauma, Oklahoma Medical Examiner spokeswoman Amy Elliott confirmed.

Investigators learned that the elastic waistband on St. Claire's underwear was stretched over his and had left visible ligature marks on his neck. There was also blood found throughout the kitchen, living room, and on the living room ceiling.

According to the report, Davis is being held at Pottawatomie County without bond.

The atomic wedgie murder may sound like some kind of joke before you read it, but when the details are laid out, it is no laughing matter. Davis' death was especially brutal.
