The Daily Beast: Man Beheads Self in Virginia/8.31.11
"A man in Virginia beheaded himself Tuesday after an apparent domestic dispute. Police responding to a call about the dispute noticed a burning utility trailer and a white SUV nearby. They also noticed that the driver of the SUV had tied a cable around a tree, run it through the car window, and wrapped it around his neck. When police tried to get him to exit the vehicle, he accelerated and decapitated himself. 'Nobody has ever heard of anything like this,' the local sheriff said."
In other news, there's ingenuity in Virginia.
I kid, of course. First of all, the guy in question was from Chicago; second, what drove him to the point of deciding to, oh, you know, take his own head off was apparently an argument with his ex-wife. And that I can understand perfectly.
