Body Found Hanging Outside VFW Post in Ky.
2 hours, 17 minutes ago

WINCHESTER, Ky. - A man apparently hanged himself outside a Veterans of Foreign Wars post early Wednesday morning, just hours after someone burned an American flag in the same place, Winchester police said.

Detective James Hall said foul play was not suspected.

Hall said the dead man was found by a passer-by about 1 a.m., about two hours after the flag was burned. He was dressed in civilian clothes and found hanging by the flagpole rope, Hall said.

The man had not been identified Wednesday afternoon. Clark County Coroner David Jacobs said he appeared to be in his late 20s or early 30s but was not carrying identification.

The body was sent to the state medical examiner's office in Frankfort for an autopsy.

Winchester, a city of about 16,000 residents, is about 20 miles east of Lexington.

Hummm. A suicide huh. Kind of like a Vince Foster suicide? I'm sure the flag burning and the hanging have NOTHING in common.

Maybe not. There's still time for Hollywierd to make up a backstory and give him a starring role.

No, they’re making a movie about her, starring Ed Begley Jr. and Mr. T.

Assuming this is the same lefty clown who burned the flag, dare we hope that the Bush haters have become so crazed and lunatic that they've now turned into a suicide cult and are going to start offing themselves?? Could life possibly get that good????

As long as they are only killing themselves and don't start taking pages out of the islamoterrorist suicide books.

The VFW will ceremoniously burn flags that are old and worn out. It is the proper and acceptable way to dispose of such flags.

That's funny! I actually had to look hard though, to see that her ugly mug had been replaced by Ed Begley Jr's face.

They should burn hippies, too.

If nothing else, for sanitation reasons.

It's possible. They've pushed insanity to its outer limits, suicide is the only place left to go.

Total meltdown is just around the corner. Cleaning all of those jumper's bodies off the streets and sidewalks is going to be a real pain in the ass.

It does not state who burned the flag or for what purpose.

DU dims only hang themselves when a GLBT or Cuban flag is burned.
