"Friend of Falwell" Minister Dies During Bizarre Sex Play

It started pretty innocently in June....

A Montgomery minister was found dead in his home Sunday.
Lt. Mark Drinkard, a police spokesman, said the Reverend Gary M- Aldridge was found about 10 a-m by a member of his church who became concerned after he failed to show up for church services.

Montgomery Mayor Bobby Bright, in a newspaper interview, hinted that the minister may have been the victim of foul play.
Aldridge had been a senior pastor at Thorington Road Baptist Church for 15 years.
But the Smoking Gun got the details thru the police report today (warning-disturbing)
OCTOBER 8--An Alabama minister who died in June of "accidental mechanical asphyxia" was found hogtied and wearing two complete wet suits, including a face mask, diving gloves and slippers, rubberized underwear, and a head mask, according to an autopsy report.
Investigators determined that Rev. Gary Aldridge's death was not caused by foul play and that the 51-year-old pastor of Montgomery's Thorington Road Baptist Church was alone in his home at the time he died (while apparently in the midst of some autoerotic undertaking). While the Montgomery Advertiser, which first obtained the autopsy records, reported on Aldridge's two wet suits, the family newspaper chose not to mention what police discovered inside the minister's rubber briefs.
