Richard Norris comes from Virginia and just turned 22. But his former life finds a sudden end. The young man shoots himself accidentally in the face with a shotgun. He blows off his chin, nose, lips, teeth, and tongue. Richard is completely maimed and disfigured, left unable to eat or speak. The people stare at him with horrified expressions. Richard barricades himself in his room and only leaves the house at night. The Virginian’s suffering is so extreme that he tries to kill himself in vain several times. But after 15 years of torture, the death of another turns into his salvation.
