Paul Daniel Kunzler may not have had the best judgement when it comes to roommates, as a matter of fact, he simply may not be aware of the existence of anything remotely similar to good judgement.
Kunzler had two roommates, and if Kunzler gets out of jail soon enough, he may still have both of them. One of the roommates however, will be spending some time in the hospital after being shot in the chest by the second roommate.
The first roommate who is a 28 year-old was not shot on purpose, it was only a coincidence which occurred because he was standing in the bathroom when the second roommate, a 27 year-old, took a shot at a mouse with a 9mm handgun in the kitchen.
As reported at KSL.Com
, the bullet from the handgun went through a wall, as they often do, and then struck the 28 year-old directly in the chest. Both the 27 year-old and Kunzler heard a scream after the gun was fired, (I might have screamed too) and of course investigated.
It was about that time they made a decision to call the police and get help. There was by the way, alcohol involved in this incident reported Taylorsville, Utah Police Sgt. Tracy Wyant.
While the victim of the shooting was being taken to the hospital, the police were conducting a routine search of the home.
At this point, the mouse has survived and one roommate is in the hospital.
The search by police turned up a 13 year-old girl who had been hiding in a basement closet of the home, and she told police she had snuck out of her home to be with Kunzler without her father's permission. When during the questioning the information that Kunzler and the 13 year-old had been seeing each other for four months is when Paul Kunzler was invited to spend some time making friends with new roommates. No mention of who got the top bunk was reported.
The probability of making any lasting friends in jail while being charged with 'rape of a child', 'sodomy of a child' and 'sexual abuse of a child' remains at best a very slim hope though.
