Books, jealous of tv, kill Florida woman

Ace has the report:
The body of a missing US woman has been found by her family, wedged upside down behind a bookcase in her room.

Mariesa Weber, 38, is believed to have fallen over and become trapped as she tried to reach behind the bookcase to adjust the plug for a TV set.

She was apparently suffocated when the shelves moved slightly and pinned her in place.

Remind me to anchor my shelves to the foundations of my house, and put the electrical outlets somewhere more accessible -- like, say, in front of the shelves. And not let the shelves know when I want to watch "Heroes" instead of reading The Baltic Crusade or some such substantial work.
