Sources Say Bomb Victim Was Involved In The Plot That Killed Him

Victim of collar bomb a participant in robbery plot, sources say
Brian Wells, the Pennsylvania pizza deliveryman who died when a bomb attached to his neck detonated, was involved in the plot that took his life, two sources with knowledge of the investigation said.

Wells died August 28, 2003, in Erie, Pennsylvania, after he claimed gunmen had grabbed him, locked the bomb around his neck and ordered him to rob a bank. After the robbery, he was detained, sat on the pavement and recounted the story to police. A bomb squad was called, but the device exploded before the squad arrived.
I know it isn't funny, but you can't make stuff like this up.

CNN has more.

So does ABC.
