Justin Reiter from Alberta, Canada, died of medical complications after attempting to gold plate his own private parts to celebrate an astonishing $598,556 jackpot win.
Justin began by painting his private parts with a lead-based paint, but quickly decided that a simple coloring wasn’t enough: he needed to take it to the next level, he needed the real gold. To complete the makeshift operation, Reiter used a professional automotive gold plater that he borrowed from a garage. Unfortunately in the twelve hours following the procedure, Justin encountered a series of health issues that ultimately led to his death.
Autopsy reports shows that the actual cause of death was lead-based paint poisoning. Dr Ian Joseffson of the Alberta Community Hospital warns of a growing trend of wannabe gangsters attempting the “deadly operation”.
