Man decapitates himself in front of deputies, firefighters after domestic dispute in Yorktown

A man is dead after decapitating himself following a domestic dispute in Yorktown.

A Fire Dept. officer noticed a cable attached to a nearby tree and wrapped around the neck of the driver. When deputies tried to get the man to leave the Explorer, he rapidly accelerated the SUV and was pulled from the vehicle and decapitated. The Explorer came to rest approximately 150 yards further down Holmes Blvd.

Awesome reporting from ABC:

"Several other neighbors who spoke to ABCNews.com said they either hadn't been home at the time of the suicide or had only heard about it on the news.

"I'm almost glad I wasn't here, that's for sure," said 71-year-old Kathleen Cherry who lives on Dorothy Drive, her backyard a few houses away from the intersection where the suicide occurred. "I would have been real upset."
