All this and more in Last Days: The Week in Review. For now, here's Tuesday.

Details come from the Denver Post, which identifies the self-harming handyman as Richard Talley, the founder and CEO of American Title Services in Centennial, Colorado. "Talley, 56, and the company he founded in 2001 were under investigation by state insurance regulators at the time of his death," reports the Post. "Talley died from seven or eight self-inflicted wounds from a nail gun fired into his torso and head." As notable as the method of Talley's death was the weirdness left in its wake: "Talley's 1989 wedding announcement in the Chicago Tribune noted he was... 'a member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic swimming team,'" reports the Post. "A spokeswoman for USA Swimming on Thursday said Talley was not on the team."
