Larissa Fisterson always made sure to lock the door. When her husband went to work every day, she would lock the door behind him as soon as he left. She double checked the door before going to sleep every night. She even locked the door when she went to get her mail.
On February 13, 2019, Larissa had a lapse in concentration. When her husband went out the front door and off to work as usual, Larissa was in the bathroom. She figured she could finish up, then go lock the front door. She was wrong.
As she opened the bathroom door, she noticed a man standing in front of her with a large axe. Before she could even let out a scream, the axe had pierced her skull, killing her immediately. There was blood everywhere. Her nightmare had become a reality.
Unlocked doors are the leading cause of death in the United States, outnumbering cancer, car crashes, drugs, the DMV, and double stuffed Oreos… combined. It’s estimated there are on average, six men outside your house at any given time, waiting to murder you with an axe. Leaving the door unlocked for just a second can be devastating.
The National Door Lockers Association of America (NDLAA) has recommended everyone invest in auto-locking door technology to alleviate the worries of getting murdered by a man with an axe. This technology will automatically lock the door every time you leave the house, and uses rectal scanning software to safely identify you and your loved ones for safe entry into your home. Remember, you can never be too careful.
