Man saws off his own leg in apparent murder-suicide

The headline:  Cops find man sawing off his own leg in grisly muder-suicide in Massachusetts

The link:  http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/2011/04/27/2011-04-27_cops_find_man_sawing_off_his_own_leg_in_grisly_mudersuicide_in_massachusetts.html

The summary:  Cops were called to a house to find a man sawing off his own leg with a power saw.  His wife and two dogs were already dead in the house and he died shortly after from blood loss.

The reaction:  I wrote recently that the guy who was knifed in the groin probably had died the most painful death.  This one might top it.

Why somebody opts for anything other than the quick and painless gunshot to the head or overdose on sleeping pills is beyond me.  Isn’t that painful to saw off your leg?  And what if you’re not successful?

Another sad story.
