Evil Engineer Accidentally Kills Himself With Death Traps He Installed For His Family

He set up death traps for revenge but then his failing memory betrayed him.

Louis Dethy was an elderly man who harbored ill will against his family. His wife left and divorced him after he cheated on her, taking along the kids. Dethy’s 14 children all abandoned him. What’s worse is that his mother had bequeathed the house he worked hard on to one of his daughters. He was once a religious man but he became dangerous. As a retired engineer, he dedicated years of his life setting up booby traps in the house to get back at his family.

The 79-year-old had been quietly installing death traps inside the house. The home had been wired to shotguns that would go off once they were triggered. The triggers were on common household items like crates of beer, chests, and dinner plates. Dethy intended to kill his family once they claim the house, which he believed to be rightfully his.

Later, this man dedicated his life to killing the family who abandoned him by making death traps inside the house.


His favorite weapon was the shotgun.

The house was wired with shotguns triggered to go off with one wrong move.

There were booby traps everywhere.

Like this crate of beer found in the cellar.

He had written clues to keep track of all the death traps installed in the house.

It was a diabolical plan just to kill the family who would later claim the house.

But one fateful day, Dethy’s failing memory had betrayed him. The Belgian engineer may have accidentally triggered one of the traps as he was trying to prepare dinner. The shotgun fired a bullet that struck his neck. Dethy died from blood loss.

Dethy, with his failing memory, may have accidentally triggered one of the traps in the kitchen while adjusting the setup.

When police officers came to the scene, it was initially thought that the pensioner had committed suicide. But after one of the detectives was almost killed by one of the traps, they realized that Dethy had planned something diabolical. Authorities had to bring in military engineers and the bomb squad to decode clues that Dethy had written to track each of his traps.

Out of all 20 traps, only one was not found.

There were 20 traps installed and detectives found all but one. They concluded that the final trap was never set up.

    It’s actually really sad that his entire family abandoned him like that. For all the kids and grandkids makes me wonder who was brainwashing them all to turn their backs. So he cheated on his wife while wrong and for some u forgivable no one should live alone or be alone. I can see why he wanted revenge.

      Don’t blame him because we have no “personal knowledge” of the real facts. There are deaper reasons for his acts prior to his death, it’s not just about tangible or valuable things.

Watch How This Monk Smoothly Throws A Tiny Needle Through A Glass

Using a needle, he successfully popped a balloon behind the glass!

While most of us would likely agree that needles and glasses are two items that do not necessarily go together, a Shaolin monk named Feng Fei definitely believes otherwise.

In a video uploaded in the YouTube channel of The Super Slow Show, Feng Fei used a needle and a glass to demonstrate what many would probably perceive as an impossible feat. In smooth precision, Fei threw a needle to a glass and the tiny thing actually pierced through it. The flying needle popped a balloon on the other side of the glass, proving that the thing actually passed through the pane.
