South Oakland, Pittsburgh - Roy Kirk dug a hole through the basement that connected his basement to Ann Hoover’s basement. The two had a bitter feud over Roy Kirk’s unsanitary, eyesore, trashed and vermin infested home. Ms. Hoover started getting roaches and rats from Kirk’s home and was upset by the problems his house caused. Before the two could go to court, Roy Kirk used the hole to enter Ann Hoover’s basement. When she came down, he hit her and strangled her to death then dug her body back into his basement to dismember her. That day they were due in court and when neither showed police started looking for Hoover and Kirk. They caught him as he was cutting up the corpse. He was arrested on the spot and placed in the back of a windowless police van. In the minutes from his home to the police department he managed to remove his belt and committed suicide via strangling himself and all this happened with his hands cuffed.
