Lucky escape


Millionaire 'staged attempt on his life to frame eldest son'

It was an open-and-shut case, John Donovan, a millionaire businessman, told police investigating the attempt on his life in a New England car park.
His gun-wielding attackers, whose bullets were miraculously deflected by his belt buckle, had been sent by a member of his own family, with whom he was locked in a bitter legal battle.
After months of investigation, the authorities have reached a different conclusion. Donovan, a former professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is believed to have staged the attack on himself to frame his eldest son, James, a managing director at Goldman Sachs, the investment bank.
Donovan, prosecutors say, fired the shot that shattered his car window on a dark December night last year. He even gave himself a flesh wound, while blasting holes in his own clothes, before scattering the empty bullet cases around the car park in a suburb of Boston.
Police also say they caught Donovan altering the angle of a closed-circuit television camera so it no longer recorded the scene.

Perhaps he thought the X Men movies were real life?
Didn't Wonder Woman deflect bullets with her wrist bangles?
