I completely agree, especially considering all that is actually known about how long (or short, as the case may be) it takes for pressure on the neck to incapacitate or kill; but it's a pretty lavish wild irresponsible guess, IMO; and did irreparable harm to what might be the real events of this story in the public perception, considering people are still forced to use it in some way, shape, or form as a benchmark, because he put it out there.
I agree with this. The 'fifteen minutes' statement is the proverbial shot across the bow. I can think of two other high profile cases in recent history here in the US, where statements have been made and the narrative takes off stirring up emotions... Only to be proven false and misleading later during recorded depositions and or testimony. But the damage is done, IMO.
