US: Snake handling preacher dies of natural causes

February 17, 2014

When you’re this stupid, snakebite is a natural cause.

A Kentucky snake-handling preacher who appeared in a television show about the religious practice died of a snakebite after refusing medical treatment, authorities said.

Jamie Coots was found dead at 10pm on Saturday night at his house in Middlesboro, Kentucky, according to Middlesboro Police Chief Jeff Sharpe…

The emergency responders left after failing to persuade Coots to get help but returned less than an hour later, the statement said.

They “discovered Mr Coots had passed away, apparently due to a venomous snakebite,” it said.
