The Washington Post reports a Casper man died at a hospital Saturday after a gas explosion in his home.
Michael Lesher, 44, disconnected all gas lines in his home Saturday morning, which prompted a third party to call a police on suspicions of suicidal behavior.
Three officers who reported to the scene were also injured. They were treated for abrasions and bruises when before being released from Wyoming Medical Center Saturday.
Trib.com reports that Lesher was no longer with his wife and that he had been given an eviction notice to be out of his home by noon Saturday. Reports also say Lesher told family and friends that he was planning on "going out peacefully" after discussing suicide with them.
