SPEEDWAY, Ind. -- Police say someone used a wooden coat hanger to kill a guest in a Speedway motel.

The man, who police said is from Palatine, Ill., was found dead Monday at the Super 8 Motel near High School and Crawfordsville roads.

Police said the man had been severely beaten and had suffered wounds to his neck, back and chest.

A wooden coat hanger was found sticking out of the man's neck.

Police said the victim had checked into the motel Friday and was due to check out today.

No arrests have been made in the case.

I thought that Roe vs. Wade made it legal to kill people in hotels with coathangers, if the guy is a Dr. does that mean he can walk?

I knew that if Roberts was confirmed to the Supreme Court that the US would go back to deaths by coathangers.

I am sure that everyone else here had the same thought that you did about the hanger and Roe.

When coat hangers are illegal, only criminals will have coat hangers.

For all anti-gun advocates, this explains why people kill and they don't have to have a gun to do it.

Ya can't win. I believe Joan Crawford went berserk in "Mommie Dearest" when her daughter used a wire coat hangar.

There must be more coat hanger laws (or at least, coat hanger locks).

In all seriousness you would have to work darn hard to subdue someone with a wooden coat hanger, the first hit would generally put their PO'd meter all the way over to the red. It would take a lot of hits to put a healthy guy down with one, even stabbing him in the neck would take a while for him to drop. This guy/gal must have been seriously motivated to finish him off that way.

Some time ago on FR there was an article about a guy from Great Britain who killed somebody with a dessert spoon. I shudder to think of the mayhem he would have caused had he access to a tablespoon or - God forbid! - a fork.

I just want to know how he got the little ball out of the little metal hoop hangy-thingy on the hotel hanger.

A silent and menacing fellow, Busetta (Amerigo Tot), who had better luck with hangers than pillows.

I did a search of google images hoping to find one of those scenes from G2, but none to be found. (sigh) A great scene in G2 was when the camera shows him in the big apartment after he has killed with the coathanger, and is walking across the room behind the EMTs with the stretcher. He walks quietly, and you hear those deep tones reminscent of the opening of Jaws.

It has now been ruled as a botched suicide.

Seems he was trying to hang himself in the closet when something went terribly wrong.

Sounds like he picked up a prostitute and things got rough. As my dad used to say, "the --you came for isn't the --- you actually get."
