Qtiasar /H' Color TV I byMoranoLA'^ I AT A NEW LOW PRICE! : S>IM£ QUALITY & RELIABILITY • Man Has Himself Crucified BUCKEYE,, Ariz. , (UPI)Eugent Austin talked n woman friend into crucifying him in hopes it would bring his family back, the sheriff's office said today. Austin, 45, was found Thursday nailed to a cross erected against a fence five miles east of here, sheriff's Sgt. Ed Calles reported. Calles said Austill, who was taken to the Maricopa County Hospital with nail holes in both hands and his right foot, told them he did it because "maybe his wife and his kids would come back to him." Austill wife and two sons left him earlier this week. Calles said Austill fastened a 12-fooit-high upright to the fence, nailed on a crossbar and footrest, and strapped a ladder to it. He mounted the ladder, and asked a woman friend to stand on his pickup truck and nail him on. The woman, who was not identified, reported the incident to the sheriff's office. She told officers that as she pounded in nails, Austill "screamed like a son ot a gun." Calles said the woman probably would not be charged with any crrnie.
