Description: The cause of death is a little unclear. It could have been his pre-existing heart condition. Or his penchant for vanilla milkshakes from the local Burger-Matic. Or it could have been the A.H.-1 Cobra Attack Helicopter that chased him off the road, forced him to jump out of his station wagon and run, literally, for his life, dodging the bullets that peppered his path. Of course, it wasn't the food at the Burger-Matic that Henry was so fond of; it was mostly his girlfriend, Sally Jackson, the woman carrying his child and relegated to the drive-through window so the customers won't see her condition. Despite Henry's nightly pleas, she is determined to stick with her decision that ended the relationship. Even in this small town, Sally didn't find out that Henry was married until after...things had gotten complicated. Complicated is certainly one way to describe the family Henry Lever left behind. His Machiavellian widow is more upset by her dead husband's infidelity than she is by his actual death. Her twisted attempts to discover the identity of Henry's mistress have involved her sons from a previous marriage, Dorian and Angus, both Army National Guardsmen and Cobra helicopter pilots. Their little scheme to scare Henry back into fidelity was for their mother's sake -- too bad Henry's heart was weaker than they thought.
