In the news: Was Vincent Van Gogh Shot?

A CBS News report discusses a ground-breaking new biography by two Pulitzer-Prize winning writers who argue that Vincent Van Gogh may not have committed suicide, as has been long believed.  Instead, their evidence points to his being shot by wealthy, rowdy teenage boys. The teens had taken previous pleasure in bullying Van Gogh by pouring salt in his coffee, snakes in his paint can, and having their girlfriends torment him. The authors argue that although these teens shot Van Gogh, as he lay dying, he protected them from police, asking investigators not to accuse anyone of the crime.
