Bur­glar died after vic­tim tied him up

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AN el­derly man ac­ci­den­tally killed a bur­glar after re­strain­ing him with mask­ing tape.

The 68-year-old ad­mit­ted spring­ing a trap in an at­tempt to catch thieves break­ing into his prop­erty.

Nathaniel John­son (above) told au­thor­i­ties that he hid as 31-yearold Cleve­land Jones Gully ap­proached the back door of his house.

When he was con­fronted, the sur­prised bur­glar fell off the back steps.

John­son sub­dued the man while he was on the ground and tied his hands be­hind his back.

Po­lice said that after re­strain­ing Gully’s hands, John­son placed duct tape over his mouth and tied the man to a tree us­ing rudi­men­tary ma­te­ri­als – elec­tri­cal wire, rope from a clothes­line and mask­ing tape.

But when Alabama sher­iffs ar­rived at his home 10 min­utes later, Gully was dead.

John­son isn’t fac­ing crim­i­nal charges while au­thor­i­ties await the re­sults of an au­topsy that will de­ter­mine the cause of Gully’s death. TROM­BONE is the French word for ‘pa­per­clip’ LUSTY Lea Michelle showed off some se­ri­ous side boob as she at­tended a char­ity gala this week.

The 29-year-old stunna was in Los An­ge­les walk­ing the car­pet for the LA Dodgers Blue Di­a­mond Foun­da­tion when she de­cided to treat cam­eras to a glimpse of her pert pair.

Go­ing bra­less in an ul­tra-tight black dress, the brunette beauty stole the show among a crowd of A-list elite.
