Vicky Keahey has killed more big cats than a poacher!
You might think that a Cause of Death of "Basal Cell Carcinoma" there would not be much to say. Unfortunately that's not the case.
Eric died from Basal Cell Carcinoma. It's a cancer that's rarely fatal. This link to PetMD mentions this. Here's another.
Months and months and months passed without Eric being treated. It is another example of Vicky burying her head in the sand and waiting for Eric to get worse, and that she could capitalize on his illness.
The story of his death is complete crap too. He did play on the pool. That part is true. What followed was a gruesome scene of badgering him and spraying him with vinegar to coerce him into a chute where they could administer the euthanasia drugs. None of that worked so Eddie Keahey, Vicky's husband, got a dart gun. This went on for over an hour.
Eric had a bum hand dealt to him, but he did not have to die because of it. Vicky's stupidity cost him his life. She can attempt to justify it all she wants. It is rarely fatal. If you chose to not believe us, then Google "Basal Cell Carcinoma" and read for yourself.
