That woman died shortly after that incident. Her death is not linked directly to the gazebo event (i.e., not caused by a samurai sword), but is perhaps related to her mental state (perhaps influenced by the media attention and/or mental health).

Making fun of crazy behavior is less fun when someone dies...

To be fair, the gazebo had been talking trash quite a bit.

Lucky more people weren't hurt.

You could stand in the middle of Rhode Island, swing a sword, and hit everybody.

She didn't attack the gazebo; her friend did. And they were apparently practicing sword fighting. Article.

From your obit link, "She had a quick wit and loved to make people laugh." She was forty; he was 37, so it's entirely possible he was inspired by what we're talking about. Crazy? Maybe. Trying to make people laugh? Also possible.

Attacking a gazebo is a thirty year old roleplaying meme. You can read the story below, with the Head of Vecna and other stories.
