Second violent death in as many weeks hits Disney town

Pin it

Celebration, Florida — the creepy Disney-founded town that has artificial bird noises pumped out by speakers hidden in bushes — has seen its second violent death this week, just one week after a man was found murdered inside his condo. There seems to be no connection between the deaths, however: this one seems like an unfortunate attempted (but failed) case of suicide by cop:

Craig Foushee, 52, barricaded himself in a home Thursday for more than 14 hours, according to an Osceola County Sheriff's Office report. He shot at deputies several times, but deputies never returned fire because they couldn't get a clear shot. No deputies were injured.

Police entered the home early Friday and found him dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Foushee was a divorced father of three, whose security business had dissolved in September. (Also a gun enthusiast, according to Facebook photos.) This, combined with the previous victim's living alone with a Chihuahua, doesn't make the Disney-created town sound very magical at all.
