Man finds his 81 year old life partner Ernie outside their garage, shivering with cold and covered in blood and calls 911. The video has a very real feel to it, but a lot about it feels odd.
An altercation (a domestic dispute) involving knife threats the night before appears to have taken place between the two men. The wounds may have been unintentional, there probably was no plan to hurt the old fellow, but the dude with the camera certainly gives off a bad vibe.
The injured guy suffers from dementia. The camera guy may even have taken time to convince the old fella that he had done it to himself before filming. Near the end of the video, when the cops are examining the blood splatter and knife, the camera dude starts saying things like “maybe he wondered out… as people his age sometimes do… he might have taken sleeping pills… he’s been by the garage all night long… it wasn’t a crime…. he said to me ‘Don’t let them blame you’. He’s been ill the last couple of days. A bit confused too… Do I need to bring a will?”
Or maybe he really does mean well, but is just really nervous and acts weird. But making a promise that he wouldn’t post the video on YouTube and then doing just that is a severe breach of trust…
