article imageMan Builds Guillotine to Kill Himself

By Chris V. Thangham     Sep 12, 2007 in Crime
A 41 year old man built a six foot guillotine and committed suicide with it. His body was discovered in a wooded area next to the guillotine by workers from a nearby shopping center.
Allen Park Police was notified about the dead body and a guillotine near Melvindale in Detroit. Deputy Police Chief Dale Covert said they found a newly constructed six foot tall guillotine bolted to a tree and it included a swing arm. They also found several store receipts showing the materials used to assemble this guillotine.
The Allen Park Police are dumbfounded with the reasoning behind this man for building a guillotine and killing himself with it. This man apparently had built this guillotine from scratch, and it must have taken quite a bit of time in constructing this device. He must have been desperate to end his life.
There are different ways of killing oneself in suicide but this must be a bizarre way of dying. I don't think Dr. Guillotine had this in mind when designing this guillotine.
If only someone could have talked to him sooner while he was building this and prevented this suicide. In internet you can find anything to build, most likely this guy must have gotten the instructions from it.
