Drive and drink

A couple of weeks after he raped a 14 year-old girl he had lured to a motel, Jonathan Hanks, 33, was being chased by cops along a California highway close to Los Angeles, anxious to arrest him.

After a six-mile run he obviously decided the game was up.

So he swigged on a bottle of salt and cyanide, slumped over the wheel, and crashed his car.
