Marvin Heemeyer's "Killdozer"

In 2004, Heemeyer, a muffler repair shop owner, went on a rampage following a feud with city officials in Granby, Colorado. His vendetta stemmed from a zoning dispute involving a concrete factory constructed near his shop that he believed caused his business to fail. Heemeyer, who was a welder, armored a bulldozer—later dubbed the "Killdozer"—with layers of steel and concrete and used it to demolish the town hall, a former judge's home, and other buildings in Granby. How did his rampage end?
