PHOENIX – April Fool’s Day has been around for hundreds of year all around the world and always has been a day of jokes and humor.

Unfortunately, for 19 year old Shawn McCormick, April Fool’s turned out to be a tragic day. Shawn apparently committed suicide this morning after his wife(widowed), Sarah McCormick, allegedly told Shawn that she had been having several romantic affair with other men for most of their marriage.

According to Sarah, Shawn waited about 10 seconds in silence before he reached for his Glock 17 and fired a fatal shot to his head. Sarah then called the police while sobbing out of control. Sarah told investigators her husband shot himself before she had a chance to say “April Fool’s!” She also mentioned she has never actually cheated on Shawn, saying “It was simply a joke”.

The couple had no children yet. Shawn’s funeral will be held next week. We will update you daily.
