LONDON (Reuters) – A 36-year-old-man has killed himself with a home-made guillotine, a source close to the police investigation of the case said.

The source said Boyd Taylor had built a timer to activate the device in the early hours of Monday morning and that he had been found by his father.

Taylor lived with his father in Milbourne, Northumberland.

“We are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a 36-year-old man found at his home,” a police spokesman said Wednesday. “There are no suspicious circumstances and a file is being prepared for the coroner.”

That’s pretty damned depressing.
