Because he had every intention of killing President Garfield. He borrowed the money to buy a gun and attempted to kill him once prior to the actual time he shot him. His "obsession" would have been that he believed that "God" wanted him to kill the president.

This case is important by "Case Law" standards because it was on of the first cases tried with the "Insanity" defense where Guiteau believed he was insane at the time of the shooting, but was not "medically" or "professionally" insane with which he hoped to get off. Ironic note... It took a lawyer to think of it. Guiteau was a lawyer.

So it wasn't necessarily "rage" but a planned assassination of President James Garfield. That's why I ruled him out.

The man brought a sharp piece of ice(I forgot what the correct term was...) into a room, locked it then stabbed himself with it. Is that correct?

Yeah, you got it. I could've been a smartass and just answered "yes" because of the question at the end, but there's no point in doing that. When you recite the answer, don't ask questions. State it as what you think the answer is.

The man stabbed himself with a shard of ice in a locked room. The ice melted, which explains the blood and water around him. Good job, Castor!

FFFFFFF dude.  I wish I had known about this thread sooner, I saw that in an episode of Detective Conan except the guy froze the block of ice with a knife sticking out of it.

Yes cause I'm not gonna

Two men die on Friday. Their obsession lead to their deaths and their deaths are talked about to this day, but neither person had met the other.

Sorry, I was trying to figure out how come the questions were so strange and for some reason the first part got erased, but I fixed it. So let's try this again:

Two men die on Friday. Their obsession lead to their deaths and their deaths are talked about to this day, but neither person had met the other.

So BunofGovt no it isn't Steve and Timothy.

answer with a clue is Yes they share the same obsession/passion which they are known for and their work with.

K&K: great guess ^^) but No sorry...
