Man cuts off own head with chainsaw after flat is earmarked to be bulldozed by developers
A ‘vulnerable’ man cut off his own head with a chainsaw after being ordered to move out of his home to make way for developers, police believe.
David Phyall’s severed head was found beside the power tool inside his housing association flat shortly after receiving his eviction notice.
Detectives were today investigating the possibility that the 58-year-old killed himself rather than leave his home of eight years.There's an understatement.An ambulance service spokesman said: ‘We were called to an address in Bishopstoke to reports to a “concerns for welfare.”
‘A rapid response vehicle attended and a search found a patient had sustained serious injuries.’
Lots of comments. Is this one serious?An inquest opened and adjourned by deputy central Hampshire coroner Simon Burge.
It listed the possible cause of death of Mr Phyall as ‘complete transaction of the neck’ and ‘chainsaw wound to the neck.’
Yet another tragic case of local government not taking sufficient trouble to investigate the last resident and thus setting off a chain reaction. Absolutely awful.
