Pipe Bomb Killed Oregon Man

Posted: Updated:

HEPPNER, Oreg.- Investigators now say it was an accidental pipebomb explosion that killed a man near Boardman over the weekend.

The Morrow County Sheriff says 28-year-old John Brandon Paradiso died at a Hermiston hospital Saturday after the bomb he was working on apparently exploded, inflicting hundreds of shrapnel wounds and lighting him on fire.

A bomb squad was called in to deal with other unexploded weapons on the Premisis.

Additional evidence is being handed over to the prosecutor's office where charges could be filed against the farm owner for knowing Paradiso made the bombs there.
