You may not know Brian Douglas Wells by name. But if I say the pizza delivery guy with the bomb around his neck, I'll bet you'll know exactly what I'm talking about. In 2003, pizza delivery guy, Brian Wells, delivered a pizza to a remote location as part of his normal job, but showed up at a bank an hour later with bomb locked around his neck and instructions for not only the teller to hand over cash, but telling him how to get out of the situation alive. He had a makeshift gun provided along with the bomb that he was instructed to use in the bank robbery. In the end, he was sent on a sort of scavenger hunt to try to gain his freedom. He only had 55 minutes but was caught and arrested by police for the bank robbery before he could complete the "mission". The bomb detonated while the police had him surrounded and were waiting for the bomb squad to arrive.Questions remain:
Was Brian a victim of a crime or the crime mastermind?
If he was a criminal mastermind, was he working alone?
If he was a victim, why was he targeted and what was the point of the crime?
Who would have committed such a crime?Case History Resources:Court TV's Crime LibraryThe note (censored)Primetime Crime - links to a number of articlesFBI suspect drawingsFBI images of constructed weapon
What's your theory? What's the latest you've heard on the case?
