To this day this is still one of the craziest stories I’ve ever heard in my entire life.
A few years back, a Minnesota man was arrested after his wife was found dead. The cause? A sex and meth-fueled, heavy metal death party.
Duane Johnson, (not to be confused Dwyane “The Rock” Johnson) 58, called 911 to report that his wife, Debra, 69, was dead. When police arrived on the scene, Johnson came out of his house naked, then ran back inside where deputies found him in a bathtub.
He claimed that his wife didn’t want to die in a nursing home so he checked her out, and together they had a “death party.”
The couple did a lot of crystal meth, rocked out to 1980s metal band Quiet Riot and had sex in the hours before she died. Since she was unable to eat or drink, Johnson fed her snow to keep her hydrated.
The words “Death Parade God Hell” was written on the front door…
He was charged with criminal neglect and receiving stolen property, with bail set at $250,000.
Funny, this is how I always imagined Keith Richards going out, but still, you can kind of sympathize with someone that doesn’t want to die in a nursing home. Some people like to end it on their own, bat-shit crazy, highly illegal, rockstar-like terms.
Unfortunately, in the good state of Minnesota, that’s not your call to make.
And while I know crystal and crack aren’t the same, I can’t help but want to call this dude, Duane, The Crack Rock, Johnson.
He pled guilty to felony neglect and as sentenced to three years in 2019. Ultimately, he only served 19 months in prison, and the rest of his sentence will be on supervised release.
