Rev. Mark Bidwell Invites Man Over for Meth & Sex, But the Guy Dies
Thursday, September 29, 2011 at 10:48 am
Last week, Bidwell (pictured top) began chatting up 43-year-old Steven Fitch, who he met over the internet. He invited the guy over the next night for a little sex and some meth wolfing. Then they invited a third guy over.
At around 5 a.m., the third man noticed that Fitch was turning blue. He started to perform CPR, but stopped when Fitch started barfing.
Bidwell called 911, but he could barely supply any information on Fitch, seeing as how he'd only met him the night before.
Fitch would die a little more than an hour later at the hospital.
Police aren't sure if Fitch died of an overdose or from some other issue. But since the drug possession appears to be minor, Bidwell hasn't been charged with anything. He has, however, been relieved of his duties as the police chaplain. (Special thanks to reader Shade for the tip.)
