Erie, Pa. pizza delivery man Brian Douglas Wells enters a bank and tells the teller he’d been shackled with an explosive device around his neck and forced to pull off a heist. The bomb goes off as Wells exits the bank, which is surrounded by cops, and it kills him instantly. While investigating the crime after his grisly death, the FBI ultimately discover that Wells was not an innocent victim but a co-conspirator unaware that a real bomb would be involved for the actual heist. The alleged mastermind of the intricate plot is Marjorie Diehl Armstrong who is currently serving life in prison plus thirty years.
