A bizarre story in Bath. An auto mechanic quit his job last week and headed west to kill two television news anchors.

At least that’s what 48 year old David Lee Simpson said he was planning. On Twitter he said he wanted to strap the women to a tree and he said he wanted to gut them like deer. When cops stopped Simpson near Bath, he had guns, binoculars, zip ties, a knife, and a police radio.

He was upset because of things the women said while covering the Jodi Arias trial. She’s the woman accused of brutally killing her boyfriend, her trial got plenty of TV coverage. The sheriff in Phoenix said that Simpson was infatuated with Arias.
