Up in smoke

Tallmadge D’Elia, 38, lived in Florida and was an avid vaper – the device for inhaling nicotine gas.

No longer.

In early May, his vape pen exploded, shot a few pieces of the pen into his head – from which he died – and fire personnel found extensive fire damage in his bedroom at home. The medical examiner’s report said cause of death was a “projectile wound of the head”.
