Man Decapitates Himself After Access Arguement
A 46 year old man has killed himself in a bizarre incident, after an argument with his ex-wife.
A forty-six-year-old man from Yorktown, Virginia beheaded himself on Tuesday after a row with his ex-wife over access to his children.
Police were called to Nathan Place at 10.13am yesterday after a disturbed phone call by the victim’s ex-wife. While they were discussing recent arguments with the woman the looked over to see a white ford explorer, with a trailer pulling along behind it in flames. The woman screamed that the man in the vehicle was her ex-husband.
The vehicle pulled over and the police tried to negotiate with the man to exit the vehicle, but when the fire service arrived one of the officers observed a razor sharp electrical wire tied around the mans knock, and tied to a tree a short way down the road.
Negotiations failed suddenly and the man hit the accelerator, causing the vehicle to bolt forward at full speed. As he did, his head was yanked clean off, flying around 13 feet from the vehicle. The vehicle itself continued to travel some distance down the road into the next estate.
Sherriff Danny Briggs stated that the situation was a real one of a kind, and that nobody had seen anything like it.
The man’s name has not been released, as it falls under Virginia’s anonymity laws in respect of suicides.
