    Well how people commit murders is a good place to start. Firearms being the normal method, followed by knives or cutting instruments. As you can see hanging isn't even mentioned in the article. Since we went ahead and stated the obvious....

    207 pound High School Football player isn't just going to sit there and let someone hang him.

    Unless of-course he was suicidal.

    There's going to be a struggle and evidence of a struggle.

    Calling this " lynching " ??

    Ridiculous. They're not even sure there was a crime committed.

    If the details stated in the OP are true then it is quite suspicious.

    Poison isn't listed on there yet I know someone who was poisoned by her spouse last year.

    I missed all of the lynchings of black men by racist whites on that list too. But I would imagine on a list of suicide methods hanging would be quite high. Actually according to this list it's the #3 most common.

    So, if the argument is based on what's "normal" there's a far greater chance that this young man committed suicide by hanging than was hung by another person.

    That's what I don't get either. It would be very hard to get a 200+ pound man into that state. Not saying it's impossible, but it would be hard.

    Did it cross your mind that it could be a group of people?

    You are probably right but I allow for that I haven't seen any reports that indicated for certain there was or was not any other trauma to the body, so I do not rule it out as foul play, but suspect that it was just a plain old suicide.

    I don't know, usually if it's framed as a suicide there's usually evidence to show that it was in fact a homicide. It is not uncommon for people to follow their regular routines before killing themselves. And in many cases people who do actually successfully killed themselves do not exhibit signs or symptoms. People who talk about killing themselves are usually the type who just want attention. His mother must be feeling really terrible right now, many people don't wish to believe their loved one really kill themselves because they wrongfully believe that they are the reason for the suicide. Or that they could have stopped them if they knew.

    However it does appear that this may have been an assisted suicide. unless there is a suspect with a motive, I don't know we should bring this out as a lynching. Despite stereotypes, interracial relationships are not uncommon in the south, relationships involving 17 to 31 yo couples are less so, which leads me to wonder just what the kids state of mid was.

    It actually is..
    One More: Poison (8 annual murders)
    Poisoning generally involves some degree of premeditation. And prospective killers who give this method of murder any thought whatsoever — or who have seen a few episodes of CSI — probably realize that modern post-mortem toxicology reports will usually show if someone has been slipping their loved one poison with his or her dinner.
    I missed all of the lynchings of black men by racist whites on that list too. But I would imagine on a list of suicide methods hanging would be quite high. Actually according to this list it's the #3 most common.
    Well...I responded to you saying "if it's a murder why is it called a lynching?". Well if it's a murder it's not a suicide.
