Death by Weird

Yakima County is a weird place.

People don't seem to JUST die here, they have to go in weird ways and/or circumstances. Take for instance my last autopsy: healthy (other than having assumed room temperature) old guy turns up dead in his house. Pathologist opens up his stomach and finds it full of anti-freeze, which had almost disinigrated his innards. Turns out the old guy had his gardener buy him a gallon of Prestone a week before, the gardener thought it was odd cause the guy didn't have a car. Most people just shoot themselves, or at least give themselves a nice hanging... But anti-freeze??? Weird.

Not too long ago, had my 3rd auto-erotic asphyxiation death; and no, I won't explain it to you here... just Google it, but make sure your porn filter is off.

Then I was at an autopsy for a victim of a drive-by gang shooting, and the pathologist remarked on the very detailed, full sized tattoo of a nude female on this guy's back; he asked, "Why would he (the dead guy) put that where he can't see it?" I told the doc, "Cause it wasn't for him, it was for his cell mate."


I can take all the weirdness, I just can't get used to the smell.

I don't envy you a bit. Give me a prison full of convicted murders, rapists and other misfits and I am fine. Dead bodies in there kind of make sense. Death by anti-freeze, not so much. Sad. The other guy...ultimate climax I guess, huh? The things humans do never cease to amaze me! Keep up the good work and I am glad to see you posting, Lisa

I've heard of people using antifreeze to kill dogs; I've also read that it's a terribly painful death, enough that it would be one of the last suicide methods I'd try!

Just when you think the law-Gods are peeing on your cases, they give you a good auto-erotic death scene. It's like getting a birdie on the last golf hole of the day - it keeps ya coming back for more.

I had a good one a decade back where a guy was cross-dressing while his family was at church. He gave himself a wine enema in full-drag and was doing auto-asphyxiation when the wine overrode his ability to manipulate his restraints.

"Honey? We're home from church..."

Great comment about the tatoo! Makes a wierd way. Antifreeze-not just for animal control anymore.

I work in Corrections and my reaction was a "oh, colour me surprised" and "icky" in one fell swoop.

Remo...hysterically funny!
