    Florida man, 71, staged his own suicide to look like MURDER by copying CSI plot and tying a weather balloon to a gun so it would float over the Atlantic and disappear after he shot himself

    Authorities closed the case for 71-year-old Alan Jay Abrahamson, who was found dead near his BallenIsles Country Club, Florida, home on January 25
    • Police had ruled his death a murder but found no leads, turning to suicide as a possibility
    • Investigators scoured the internet and learned of a 2003 CSI episode where someone committed suicide but made it appear to be murder
    • They believed that he tied a gun to a helium balloon in hopes that it would ascend over the Atlantic Ocean and disappear
    • Officers found string and rubber bands near his body and found the same ones at his home
    • Also found were a pair of scissors near his body and police were able to track down purchases for balloons and helium tanks

    picks the plot where a small child almost dies/gets injured because the gun ended up in a public park endangering dozens of children..... interesting approach.
