Man with "an interest" in Fight Club removes his own tongue and lights himself on fire

The Otter Tail County Sheriff's Department said Monday it is closing its investigation into the bizarre Oct. 19 incident where a man was found in Underwood handcuffed, his tongue cut out and his body severely burned, after the man apparently admitted to a deputy that the injuries were self-inflicted . . . . Schlueter said Strom may have imitated a scene from a movie. "He had an interest in the movie 'Fight Club,'" Schlueter said. In that movie, the main character has a split personality. In the end, one of the personalities attempts to kill the other. "The evidence speaks for itself," Schlueter said.

Loathe as I am to question Sheriff Brian Schlueter, but if he's got a guy with his tongue cut out who is also burned to a deep crisp, does "an interest" in the movie "Fight Club" really constitute "evidence" that "speaks for itself."

Granted, Strom admitted that the injuries were self-inflicted, but isn't is possible that he "confessed" because he did not want to incur further ire from the person or persons who removed his tongue and burned him to a crisp?

More likely, his admission probably sounded something like this: "AUR CURT MOUR AURN TONGURE OUT ALN LERT MERSELF ERN FAHRRR!"
