Condolences to friends and family of the deceased. I had a lady friend and her new boy friend became depressed and suicidal because his wife left him for the lesbian next door. I had to go to her home and spend several nights watching her. She was depressed because she thought she was not good enough for him to live for her. She finally came out of her tailspin and found a will to live for her children.

This illustrates the dangers of just airing police handouts without any sort of critical review, verification or independent fact-checking.

The portion of the badly written, highly abbreviated "news" article that causes most who read it to question it being a suicide..."he had been decapitated" That makes it sound like it was done by some kind of assault...not as an unintended consequence of his chosen method of death... Couple that with the bound hands and feet, and the majority of people will assume foul play.

jyn taylor you people are pathetic my thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, loved ones , especially the wife of the deceased.

yes, Lisa.. I can explain it. he hung himself. he didn't chop his own head off. nowhere in the story was it even alluded to that the head was cut or chopped from the body. the word 'decapitation' simply means 'separation of the head from the body'.. which is a common side effect of death by hanging.

Actually it is possible and happens quite a lot. It really depends on how he was tied and the knot was formed. Still, you would need an autopsy to rule out foul play before a determination is made.

My sisters death was ruled a suicide by the TPD and it was also unbelievable. I truly believe that they do a halfway job sometimes because it's easier for them. The surviving family deserves better.

Can someone explain to me how you can tie your own hands and feet and then chop off your own head?

If this was a suicide, TPD would have shot man. Condolences to the family that has to go through this.

it was absolutely a suicide. this sort of thing isn't all that uncommon. many people who choose to hang themselves will purposefully bind their own hands in order to counteract the instinct to free themselves from whatever they've chosen to put around their neck, thus making sure that the attempt is absolutely successful. furthermore, decapitation is not only possible in a hanging, but given the physics of it.. height the person releases from, weight of the person and time left hanging.. it becomes probable. those of you who are bashing TPD are not only insensitive to the families involved, you're showing an alarming ignorance coupled with a willingness to display it.
