Their investigation revealed the paradox of justice. Detectives determined the man had slashed his arms on the broken window and died from loss of blood, according to the release.

Authorities are continuing to investigate.

Finally, people will undoubtedly feel sorry for the wayward thief. But think for a minute about the trauma and mental images the homeowner is now forced to carry. What are your thoughts?
