Man Dies Allegedly as a Result of 'Atomic Wedgie'

Stepson arrested


MCLOUD, Okla. — Pottawatomie County Sheriff Mike Booth said he had never heard of "an atomic wedgie," before suspect Brad Davis told investigators he gave one to his stepfather, Denver Lee St. Clair, on Dec. 21 at St Clair's home at 4 Shadowlake Drive in Pottawatomie County near McLoud. St. Clair was dead at the scene. Davis is St. Clair's stepson and lives in the area.

"I'd never seen this before, but when we first looked at our victim seeing the waistband of his underwear was around his neck," Booth said.

Booth said Davis told investigators that he went to his stepfather's residence and his stepfather "jumped him."

St. Clair had a head wound and appeared to have been in a fight. The underwear St. Clair was wearing had been pulled up his back and over his head, leaving the waistband around his neck. Booth said it was the first time he had ever heard of someone being killed by a pair of underwear.
