By J. DeVoy

San Diego County authorities are investigating the death of a 33-year-old woman who appears to have been killed by a homemade cannonball while her four-year-old child slept nearby. (source.)  The victim’s husband, whose name has not been released, was making a homemade cannon with a  friend around midnight on March 6, 2012; the cannon exploded, apparently sending the cannonball into the mobile home, striking his wife.
