15 Jan Ben Thomas: IRS Agent
In what appears to be a suicide, an IRS field agent was found dead in a motel bathroom on December 19, 2008. He was lying in a bathtub full of ice when he was stung by a box jellyfish. It appears that the jellyfish, with venom mind you, wrapped its tentacles around his arm stinging Thomas and causing a quick, but excruciatingly painful death. Because he was in a tub of ice, his vital organs were preserved. Authorities believe that was Ben’s intention since he called in the suicide to the 911 dispatcher. Ben is survived by a brother.
