Clark MORE ON: Suicide Man jumps to his death in Gramercy Park Man jumps to his death off building in Williamsburg Woman with rare disease nearly crushes neighbor in death dive Daughter leaps to her death from Trump building after fight with mom A man decapitated himself Monday morning in a suicide that left his headless corpse lying in a Bronx street, law enforcement sources said. The 51-year-old man attached a metal chain to a pole on Longfellow Avenue around 9:20 a.m., the sources said. Sitting in his car, he then wrapped the other end around his neck and hit the gas of the white 2005 Honda Pilot. As the car shot forward, the chain tore his head from his body. The man’s name is being withheld pending notification of his family. The Honda continued barreling down the street until it smashed into a parked car, sending the man’s decapitated body flying onto the blacktop. Passers-by who discovered the gruesome scene and called 911 thought the crash was an accidental collision, the sources said, but when authorities investigated, they discovered what had actually happened and found surveillance video that confirmed the ghastly sequence of events.
