Man Beheads Himself

Beheadings have become a regular feature in the news but this is the first I've heard of someone doing it to himself.

(Jakubow, Poland) A 48-year-old businessman, Tadeusz Szewczek, committed suicide by tying a steel rope to a fence, wrapping it round his neck then speeding off in his car.

The car containing the decapitated body of Tadeusz Szewczek sped off down the street as his head bounced towards his home where his horrified wife was watching.

Police are baffled as to why the 48-year-old, from the village of Jakubow in eastern Poland, wanted to kill himself in such a grisly way.

They said he waited for his wife to come home before taking his own life.

Wife Malgorzata was treated for shock.
