Ghanaian University Student Suspended In USA For Killing Roommate Over Stinky Shoes
A 23 year old level 300 Ghanaian student of the University of California has been suspended and handed over to Police by school authorities for stabbing a roommate to death over stinky shoes.
The suspect, Bismark Botwe, is reported to have cautioned his friend, Dennis Gilmore who is an athlete, several times to leave the shoes he uses for training outside the room, preferably in the sun, whenever he returns from training but this, Dennis didn’t heed to it.
According to the one page police report, Bismark claims Dennis has foot-rot between his toes which causes his shoes to stink uncontrollably whenever he wears them.
The report further stated that Bismark claims he has suffered from insomnia on several occasions because of the pungent smell that has been emanating from his friend’s shoes. This, he said, has made him grow very lean.
Narrating the incident to ScrewLife.Com, Inspector Foster Cole said Dennis returned from training one morning and forgot to leave his stinky shoes outside the room.
Upon inhaling the strong unpleasant scent from the shoe, Bismark collapsed instantly. According to Inspector Foster, it took about three hours before a paramedic was able to resuscitate and stabilize his condition since he kept collapsing once he regains consciousness and inhales the pungent smell again.
He continued, “Right after Bismark was resuscitated, he went straight to the kitchen, took a sharp knife and stabbed Dennis in the chest out of anger – resulting in his death.”
The case was then reported to the school authorities who handed Bismark over to the California Police.
As it stands, Dennis’ shoe has been sent to the California African American Museum as an artefact.
