( 4UMF NEWS ) Man Kills Uncle Over Piece Of Pork:
John Cunningham, 43, was having a heated discussion early Monday with his maternal uncle, Lessie Lowe, 44, about the pork they were planning to cook, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Tuesday.
The imbroglio stemmed from Cunningham calling the meat “pork steaks,” while Lowe referred to them as “pork chops,” the newspaper said.
From there, the two had to be separated by another person in the home before Cunningham allegedly grabbed a shotgun and fired at Lowe, police said.
The victim, one of 17 siblings, later died at the hospital. An older brother described him as a “smart young man” who enjoyed working on cars, the Post-Dispatch reported.
He turned out to be right about the cut of pork, the Post-Dispatch said.
Another argument in St. Louis over food turned deadly last week when a man plunged a knife into another man’s chest over a bag of Cheetos, according to police.
