    A taxi driver decapitated himself in his cab in what appears to have been a gruesome suicide.
    The man, believed to be in his 30s, tied a rope to a lamppost and the other end around his neck before driving off in Southwark, southeast London, on Friday.
    His body was found by police slumped in the car — with his severed head yards away.
    Police are treating the driver's death as suicide and are trying to trace his next of kin.
    Officers were called at 12.40 a.m. Friday to the horrific scene in Great Suffolk Street, where the car had crashed into a pillar.
    "Officers attended and the driver was found dead inside the vehicle," a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said.

    I bet they are

    What do you mean by that?. As far as I know the police are still trying to contact them and inform them of the dreadful news. Whenever there is a death I always think of the family.

    people dont take their own lives for the fun of it. logically to deal with pain is to reduce it, not induce more. duh.
    So when people self-harm they're not physically hurting themselves? Sometimes to (temporarily) relieve pain you have to induce it first. People commit suicide in various ways, the majority of suicidal methods are painful, contrary to your belief on the "perfect" suicide :rolleyes:

    no ****, kid.

    Kid? Shut the hell up. I'm very aware that people don't take their own lives for the fun of it. I'm just questioning your logic, people take their own lives for a many reasons and not everyone wants to die without pain. This guy is proof of that.
