Bomb Kills Deliveryman After Bank Robbery

From Times Wire Reports

Minutes before a bomb strapped to the chest of a pizza deliveryman exploded and killed him, he told police in Erie he had been forced to rob a bank and asked authorities to help him.

Federal agents and police in northwestern Pennsylvania were trying to solve the bizarre case of 46-year-old Brian Douglas Wells, who left to deliver a pizza to an address in a remote area about an hour before he turned up at the bank with a bomb strapped to his body.

Film from an Erie TV station shows Wells as he sat handcuffed in front of a state police cruiser. “Why is nobody trying to come get this thing off me?” he asked.
