man uses circular saw in murder-suicide

Posted April 26, 2011

PLYMOUTH (CBS) – Police are trying to figure out what happened after a gruesome incident in Plymouth late Monday night.


Officers were called to a home on Farmhurst Road around 10 p.m. for a well-being check.


When they arrived, they saw a man sitting in the family room. The man then picked up a power circular saw and cut one of his legs.


He was rushed to the hospital where he died.


As officers searched the home they also found a dead woman in a bed and two dead dogs. It’s not clear yet how they died. The woman had been dead for several days, according to investigators.


The owner of the home Tim Moll told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 the couple was from Vermont and was behind on their rent.


It’s not known if that was a factor in the murder-suicide.


No names have been released yet.






That's something you don't see everyday......

    Weed smokers don't cut off their hands. Makes it too hard to roll the next one.

    Remember Eric Robert Rudolph? After he was captured, his brother(?) in SC, in front of witnesses, used a table/lever mounted circular saw to cut off his arm. Something about his brother being innocent and they'd have to suffer together, I think....

    Agreed Das. Craziness at ASU typically means someone was on cloud 9.

    Was it one of those semi-auto assault saws we hear so much about?"

    See!!! Waiting periods don't work. Besides, saws don't kill people, people kill people.

    "If we had stuck to cross cut saws, this would never have happened"

    It would of taken longer.

    "mental issues - we need to address them."

    Hmmm. Math time!

    we had a guy at ASU saw off his hand cause he thought Satan had made his imprint on his hand!

    mental issues - we need to address them.
