I re-read the title to this news item a few times before determining I couldn't improve on it.
There are just too many jokes here: I guess you could say he's popped his last zit.
I linked a pic at the end of the article, he looks in that shot like he was already nearly dead anyway.
Cross-dressing wife-murderer found hanged
Dermatologist was serving life in prison for killing his estranged partner
Jan. 6, 2009
NORFOLK, Mass. - A cross-dressing dermatologist serving life in prison for killing his estranged wife, who was shot in front of witnesses, has been found hanged in his cell, a prisons spokeswoman said Tuesday.
Richard Sharpe was found by his cellmate at MCI-Norfolk on Monday evening and was declared dead at a hospital, said Department of Correction spokeswoman Diane Wiffin.
The Norfolk District Attorney's office is investigating, she said. Sharpe tried to hang himself in his cell in March 2002.
The Gloucester dermatologist was convicted in 2001 of shooting his wife, Karen, with a hunting rifle. In 2007, he was acquitted of charges he plotted to kill the prosecutor in his murder trial.
He testified that he didn't remember much about the night of the killing, when he shot his wife in front of her brother and other witnesses as the couple's two youngest children slept in another part of the house.
Sharpe, 54, was a member of the Harvard Medical School faculty who ran several businesses outside his medical practice and parlayed his earnings into millions in the stock market.
Prosecutors said he killed his wife in July 2000 because he was angry over the prospect of losing $3 million in their divorce.
His case drew national attention when photographs of him wearing slinky dresses and fishnet stockings were widely published after his arrest. His wife had said in earlier affidavits that he stole her birth control pills in an effort to enlarge his breasts.
At his trial, Sharpe testified that he began cross-dressing at a young age to escape his father's rage.
Defense witnesses, including Sharpe's siblings, testified that Sharpe was abused for years by his father.
A defense psychiatrist said Sharpe suffered from a half-dozen psychiatric disorders, including severe depression and intermittent explosive disorder.
The psychiatrist said Sharpe's disorders were aggravated when he drank alcohol, and Sharpe testified he had two to four glasses of wine the night of the killing.
But prosecutors said Sharpe carefully calculated his actions and later faked symptoms of mental illness to impress psychiatrists and the jury.
