There are two most common types of decapitations. One is beheading (mostly) by religious fanatics, and the other is decapitation in traffic accidents. This was allegedly the latter even though the severity of the act raises some doubts. One thing that may confirm traffic accident decapitation is uneven neck wound. Though given that many beheadings by knife don’t go very smoothly and the executioner struggles to severe the head, neck wounds in such cases would also look bumpy lumpy. On the other hand – this victim also misses his hand which appears to have been ripped off and has what appears as potential road-rash on his shoulders. Quite possibly a traffic accident decapitation on the side of the road.
There’s a lot of blood on the ground and to add insult to injury, there appears to be a drain nearby. I can’t see his left foot – maybe he lost that one too, unless it’s just not visible from the angle at which the picture was taken. His head rolled off away from the body and landed on the severed neck with open mouth. Oddly, hair looks like it was just combed.
