Man Kills Over Toilet Paper

You look at this guy, Franklin Paul Crow, and figure sooner or later he was going to kill over something involved with your asshole.

MOSS BLUFF, Florida – A 56-year-old man is accused of beating his roommate to death with a sledgehammer handle and claw hammer over a lack of toilet tissue.

Franklin Paul Crow [pictured] was charged with homicide Monday in the weekend death of Kenneth Matthews, 58. Crow is being held in the Marion County Jail with no bail.

Marion County sheriff’s officials said Crow beat Matthews in the head and face after getting upset there wasn’t any toilet tissue in the home on Southeast 95th Street Road home in Moss Bluff.

Crow told detectives the two were arguing when Matthews pulled out a rifle on him, according to an arrest affidavit. Crow told them he knocked the rifle out of Matthews’ hand with the handle of a sledge hammer before striking him several times with the handle. It did not have the steel head attached to it.

He then said he hit the victim twice with claw end of a hammer.

Crow fled the scene.

An autopsy found that the time of death was just before 11 a.m. Saturday. The body was found by the landlord at about 3:30 p.m. that day. It was in the bedroom, with blood splattered on the walls, ceiling and bedding, according to the affidavit.

Crow had lived with Matthews on and off. Sheriff’s Maj. Chris Blair, chief with the Detective Bureau, said investigators began to look for Crow immediately after arriving at the scene. He soon became a suspect as it became more difficult to find him.

Capt. Thomas Bibb, assistant chief with the Detective Bureau, said an 11-year-old girl told investigators she saw Crow on Friday in the backyard with a rifle and heard shots.

Crow told detectives he was shooting at a cat.

Detectives warned area businesses they were looking for Crow, and a tip from a business led them to a home where Crow was staying Sunday morning. He was taken into custody without incident.

Crow has several tattoos and scarring on his face. His criminal history includes convictions for grand theft and two counts of battery in 1997, according to court records. He went by the alias “Cherokee.”

Bibb said the suspect initially denied his involvement in the beating death and gave several different stories, at one time saying the death could be the work of a local motorcycle gang.

Bibb said detectives were able to “knock holes” in his story and alibi, and Crow eventually confessed to the crime and was charged about 4 a.m. Monday.

A sledge hammer handle covered in blood was found in the backyard of the home. A rifle was found in the victim’s brown Ford Ranger.

Crow told detectives he and Matthews were arguing about toilet paper. But Bibb said detectives are trying to determine if the argument could have involved the impounding of Matthews’ motorcycle by the Sheriff’s Office about two weeks ago.

Crow had been riding the blue Kawasaki Vulcan when he was arrested on charges of driving with a suspended or revoked license, according to a Sheriff’s Office report.Matthews, an auto parts delivery driver in Leesburg, rented the yellow-and-brown mobile home where they lived.

On Monday, Robert Pennington, a brother-in-law of Matthews, said he was the “kind of guy who would never hurt anyone” and who was trying to offer Crow help and a place to stay.

“His biggest problem was taking in a stranger,” Pennington said.

Sheriff’s Capt. James Pogue said Matthews was last seen about 7 p.m. Friday. Landlord and next-door neighbor John Bouland realized he had not seen his tenant Saturday and went to check on him that afternoon.

Though the handle did not have the sledge hammer head attached to it, the long, heavy handle was enough to inflict damage, Pogue said. “We’re not talking about a twig here.”

The autopsy report gives graphic details of the face and head wounds sustained by Matthews, including a “radiating” skull fracture, lacerations on the face and broken fingers on his left hand.

Detectives said Matthews had been beaten so badly they had to identify the body through a set of fingerprints on record from a traffic arrest.
