...they were all murdered, and by the fan club for his fellow Monty Python member, Michael Palin, no less

But according to Michael Palin, who put a follow-up letter up on Twitter, it wasn't a murder, it was actually a mercy killing for "poor deluded victims."

And here is Michael Palin's follow up letter. #MontyPythonLive
