    A cluster of accidents, a spree of citations - By Duncan Adams, Roanoke Times, VA
    As licensed electricians, they believe their brother suffered before he died.

    And that belief about the circumstances of the April electrocution of Christopher Hemstock at Roanoke Electric Steel Corp. brings tears to the eyes of brother Michael Hemstock and strengthens the resolve of brother Donald Hemstock to find meaning in Chris Hemstock's death.

    'Probably, his teeth were chattering,' Donald said. 'I've been hit a few times. It's just terrible, because I think about it and he must have just been helpless there. And he must have been through some pain for a little while.'
