These infamous photos purport to show the aftermath of a bizarre suicide in which the guy climbed onto a bandsaw and sliced himself in two with it.
I’m a little dubious to say the least. It’s got to be the least likely way to commit suicide ever, not to mention highly impractical and painful beyond measure. The text additions also have a fake feel to them, like somebody was trying to mimic a medical textbook and couldn’t quite pull it off.
To me this looks like a murder where the corpse was cut in two for disposal and the police raided the workshop before it could be dumped. I like to imagine the killer was literally sawing through the body when the police bust down the door.
I can’t rule out suicide entirely, though. We all know that certain drugs can make you do things that should be prohibitively painful. And Best Gore has proved countless times that you can be sliced clean in half and still alive, so nobody can say he would have passed out.
What do you think? Suicide theory credible, or a load of shit?
