Clippings: suicide by tearing “brains out through a bullet hole with a bit of wire”

From the Fairmont West Virginian
Published February 8, 1906

A man committed suicide by pulling pieces of his brain out of a bullet hole he sustained during a robbery last summer. Before he could damage his brain enough to kill himself, he died from blood poisoning. He had previously tried suicide by poking at his head wound, as well as slamming his head into a wall and cutting his throat.

A man was torn to pieces during an explosion at a sawmill.
