Another sad day in baseball...

This one probably won't get any national coverage though.

Former minor leaguer, and one time West Henderson High School assistant baseball coach Oscar “Poochie” Corn was beaten to death inside his home on Howard Gap Road in Hendersonville, North Carolina. He was attacked while reading his bible in the kitchen around 1:30am on Friday morning. His wife was then pistol whipped and forced to watch as her husband was beaten to death.

Their twelve year old grandson was in the house with them and hid in a closet and called 911.

According to the Asheville Citizen-Times two suspects had been arrested late Friday. A third was still on the run.

From the Times:

Authorities arrested Terry Lee Landrum, 16, of Ida Rogers Drive, and Steven R. Ramirez, 33, of Woodcock Avenue. A third person, Mykel Waters, 17, of Cedar Bluff Apartments, was being sought late Friday.

Police charged each of the three with first-degree murder; second-degree burglary; first-degree burglary; and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

What the fuck is wrong with people?
