    Rope is too long and the head can pop off, rope is too short and they die of slow strangulation instead of a broken neck.

    I get how you can bind your own feet... but how would you bind your own hands?

    Grab a roll of duct tape or a pair of handcuffs or a piece of rope and try.

    It isn't that hard to do.

    IDK I still have trouble buying suicide. Too much drop could only be an answer if he was dropping from 2 or more stories. Or if he used something like a wire to make the noose. Though the suggestion that he tied himself to the chair then dropped and the added weight caused the decapitation is intriguing. Though I am not sure how a man could tie himself to a chair, climb up and maneuver into the drop. That seems pretty awkward.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Police say a woman who lives in the home found her husband dead in the garage.
    His hands and feet were tied and the body had been decapitated.
    Tulsa police told KRMG news the death was due to suicide.

    Exactly, how do you tie your own hands?

    Ah...now I understand more after reading the comments below the story. So perhaps he hanged himself, and this was a result. Still, a poorly written story.
    Still, how did he tie his hands.

    According to the hanging charts decapitation (or partial) can occur with an 8 foot drop of the person is 200 lbs or more.

    A century ago they shorted the standard drop length likely because that is exactly what was happening. Still seems surprising for inside a garage though.

    Old drop vs modern drop rope lengths:
    14.0 stone (196 lb, 89 kg) 8 ft 0 in (244 cm) 5 ft 5 in (165 cm)
    13.5 stone (189 lb, 86 kg) 8 ft 2 in (249 cm) 5 ft 6 in (168 cm)
    13.0 stone (182 lb, 82¾kg) 8 ft 4 in (254 cm) 5 ft 8 in (173 cm)
    12.5 stone (175 lb, 79½kg) 8 ft 6 in (259 cm) 5 ft 11 in (180 cm)

    My bits of weird knowledge are not job related. I just happen to have a good memory for weird death related topics and on the interwebs there are lots of places to research and lots of likeminded people sharing information.

    My thoughts are that someone that bounds their hands together (and/or feet) prior to committing suicide does so because they want to make sure they complete the suicide and not panic and try to save themselves.

    Good video.

    And your theory is sound. The very long drop plus binding feet and hands etc.... No chance to back out. Seems like a bit of "overkill" if you ask me, but still a sound theory. The guy in the video mentions insurance payout....if that was the whole idea it was just plain stupid.
