Bill Mazs Obituary, Death Cause – A man from West Lothian received a sentence of five years in prison after being found guilty of blowing up his upstairs neighbor’s property in a massive gas explosion after a disagreement over the level of noise in the apartment. Robert Russell caused the leak on purpose so that it would explode into a tremendous explosion when Bill Mazs turned on his stove without noticing what was going on.
The man, who was 60 years old at the time, had earlier dislodged the cap on a pipe, which finally led to the demolition of the two-story house that was located in Whitburn, West Lothian, on December 8, 2020. After Bill and his dog emerged from the cave, they both developed post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which resulted in Bill sustaining serious injuries. The well-liked father of 56 years old has already passed away, despite the fact that his passing was not directly related to the incident that occurred. The Record states that Russell was sentenced on Friday at the High Court in Glasgow, and that the proceeding took place on that day.
In Livingston, at an earlier hearing, he had pleaded guilty to the charge of engaging in behavior that was both negligent and careless. At first, there was a hunch that Russell was responsible for an attempted murder of one of his neighbors. The court was told that Russell had a difficult time understanding the reasons why he would be sentenced to jail for what had occurred and how his actions had led to the consequences. However, Lord Lake argued that incarceration was the only appropriate punishment for the devastation and damage that he caused and that it was the only option available.
He communicated the following details to Russell: “There was a possibility that Mr. Mazs would have been killed. The fact that he wasn’t present is nothing more than a happy coincidence. When a person willfully removes a gas fitting from their home, they are displaying the highest level of recklessness possible. It is an obvious risk, and it indicates a total lack of care for the consequences of one’s behavior, both of which are concerning.
