this article doesn't make sense. Who died? if he was also known as Cris Criswell, is he the same person as Clyde Criswell? You really need to write better than this.

I agree...very poor writing and editing. The article implies that the same person murdered himself in a suicide and both lived and died, perhaps as a zombie?
