  • Speaking of beheading -- very creative

    SWANSEA, England — Britain is agog over the particularly gruesome suicide of businessman and gym owner Gerald Mellin, 54, on the roads surrounding his home in Swansea last September 14th. The details of Mellin's death have just come to light as an inquest has concluded the beheading death was in fact a suicide.

    The details are shocking. That morning Mellin tied one end of a long rope to a tree in a parking lot and the other around his neck. He then got in the driver seat of his open Aston Martin DB7 roadster and accelerated away onto a main road. When the rope snapped taut, his head was severed clear off his body. A short suicide note was later found in the corpse's pocket.

    Mellin, who reportedly had a history of steroid abuse and depression, was going through a contentious divorce from his second wife when he decided to take his own life. He had run up large debts with the intent, his second wife claimed to several British newspapers, of leaving her with nothing.

    "He would say suicidal thoughts," Mirielle Mellin told the BBC, "but I never actually believed that he would do anything. It was always a cry for help with Gerald. That's why I find it hard to believe this time."

    Considering the extreme nature of the suicide, the former Mrs. Mellin surely isn't alone in her disbelief.

        This sounds a little weird but I always feel a little admiration for someone who does something insane like this. It's like.. well I wish he wouldn't have killed himself but damn, at least he left nothing for chance.

          I imagine that was one of the objectives.

              Same thing happened here a few months ago. He tied a rope around his neck the other end to a tree and floored his truck. Head popped right off. Strange scene at first till we figured everything out.

                I read about a guy who put an electric chainsaw on one of those timers that you use to have your lights turn on automatically at night, took a bunch of sleeping pills and laid the chainsaw blade on his neck. He passed out, time passed and the chainsaw got automatically turned on and popped his head right off.

                  Yes, I recall hearing about that, too. Not as spectacular.

                          There is a patient, who comes in about twice a month stating they want to kill themselves and finally a doctor told the individual the following.

                          “Why don’t you go home and swallow a handful of Tylenol PM, sit in a bath tub full of water, a running hair dryer in one hand and a loaded firearm in the other and see which one gets you first.” I work in a hospital in case some were wondering.

                          You're post Ceridwen reminded of that, people always think of creative things/ways to kill themselves.

                            Originally I felt bad for thinking "Dang....he probably ruined the car...", but now I dont feel so bad about it.

                              And then (shudder) there was the man around here about 18 years ago who walked into the grocery store where I was working at the time, went over to general merchandise and picked up a boning knife and pretty much decapitated himself with that (it wasn't clean through--kind of the "Nearly Headless Nick" effect). Low tech works too, I guess.
