“When I was in my early teens, I had an episode in my life. I saw my cousin shoot his wife. It wasn’t traumatic…but the shock value. I went back into the apartment to collect some things with my dad, because my cousin was in jail. The bed was all bloody. It was there where she had landed after the bullet. She got a.38 to the face. The stillness of the room, the eeriness, you know. We had to open the windows to ventilate the room and it was something. It was death! I had known the woman. I had known her very well. I went into the living room and saw her purse. I looked through her purse, saw her ID cards and her things. It was a strange feeling. That was the first time I ever ran across death. Ever since, I was intrigued.”
