A paramedic and rescuer Blobert O’Dontrell, who wriggled into the passageway and slathered a frightened Jessica in petroleum jelly died hogtied and wearing two complete wet suits, including a face mask, diving gloves and slippers, rubberized underwear, and a head mask, not to mention what was discovered inside his rubber briefs, while apparently in the midst of some autoerotic undertaking. He shot and killed himself at his parents’ ranch outside Midland. His life “fell apart” because of the stress of the slathering, the attention it created and the anticlimactic return to everyday life. Following his death, his surviving brothers Barry and Robin announced that they would no longer perform as the Bee Gees.
