    Man cuts off own head with chainsaw

    Man cuts off own head with chainsaw after flat is earmarked to be bulldozed by developers

    A ‘vulnerable’ man cut off his own head with a chainsaw after being ordered to move out of his home to make way for developers, police believe.
    David Phyall’s severed head was found beside the power tool inside his housing association flat shortly after receiving his eviction notice.
    Detectives were today investigating the possibility that the 58-year-old killed himself rather than leave his home of eight years.

    To me, this demonstrates 'care in the community' is sadly lacking.

    I would certainly agree with that prognosis.
    I can honestly say Ive never heard of anyone doing that before.
    I worked with a delusional patient once who cut off his hand with a band saw then threw it in a microwave so it couldnt be reattached because he thought '666' was tatooed on it.
    I thought that took determination but I think this tops it.

    Here's another one of those "how on earth???" cases. I just viewed the "woman cuts her own umbilical cord, baby dies" right before this one. I just don't get it!

    There was a story that happened around here awhile ago. The man cut off his mother's head and then tried to cut off his own.

    Seriously...there is some unusual things happening these days..

    Oh, here's the case that happened here:

    Wouldn't the saw have gone through the neck pretty quick?

    That is really sad. To think you have absolutely no options left but to end your life.

    This is one of the most pitiful things I have ever read. The poor man and any family he might have somewhere.
    OMGosh, to torture one's self mentally with the thought of doing this is almost unimaginable, then to decapitate yourself with a chain saw. I didn't know this was possible. I wish I had never known. Ugggghhh.
    I wish he had gotten some caring and help somewhere.

    How awful. How very sad. How bad off could this man have been do do such a thing? I mean I'd think a person would be destitute enough to kill themselves, but a power tool?
