Harlan Drake, Man Who Killed Two in Michigan Murders, Attempts Suicide


Harlan Drake, the man who killed anti-choice advocate James Pouillon and gravel pit owner Mike Fuoss in Owosso, Michigan this week attempted suicide while in jail awaiting arraignment, reports the Detroit Free Press.

According to the Free Press, Drake "was hospitalized Saturday morning after an apparent
suicide attempt."

 

The story goes on to say:

Drake
was arraigned Friday afternoon on two charges of first-degree murder in
the Friday morning shooting deaths of anti-abortion activist James
Pouillon, 63, and gravel pit owner Mike Fuoss, 61, both of Owosso
Township.

 

Drake
also was charged with carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent
after police say he intended Friday to target a third victim — James
Howe, an Owosso real estate agent. Police said they arrested Drake at
his home before he could fulfill those plans.

Contacted
at home, Shiawassee County Sheriff George Braidwood would not provide
information about Drake’s self-inflicted wound or suicide watch
protocols at the jail.

Colbry said Drake still does not have attorney representation.
