SPRINGFIELD, VA – An elderly man killed himself with a chainsaw last week after attacking his wife with a hatchet.

The incident happened last Wednesday when a 70-year-old man attacked his 76-year-old wife in the foyer of their home.

A family member arrived at the home and witnessed the man beating his wife with the blunt side of the hatchet and managed to get inside to help her.

“The family member was able to rescue the victim, bring her outside,” said Fairfax County Police Officer Reem Awad. “At which point, the male suspect did follow outside and a struggle ensued over that ax. 911 was called at that point and we responded.”

When police arrived, the man had already retreated back inside the home and locked the doors. One of the officers looked through the garage window and saw the man lying on the floor with severe injuries to his upper torso.

“I could see that the lady was really confused and kind of like in shock, and her hands was probably injured, cut,” said a neighbor. “Then I saw them finding the older gentlemen and brought him to the garage, put him on the ground and he was bleeding tremendously.”

The man was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. The injuries he suffered turned out to be self-inflicted and caused by a goddamn chainsaw. His wife was also taken to the hospital to treat non-life-threatening injuries and expected to survive.

Police are not releasing the identity of the husband to protect the identity of the victim.

This man isn’t the first person we have ever reported on who used a chainsaw to kill themselves. We had a woman in California who used one on her own neck, and a guy in Pennsylvania who used one to kill his wife before turning it on himself.

Speaking of chainsaw deaths, any of you ever watch that video of a Mexican drug cartel using a chainsaw on one of their rivals? Until I saw that shit, I always thought a chainsaw to the neck would be a quick way to go.

  • Chainsaw and Hatchet would be a great name for a metal band.

  • WTFOMGLOL

    *crickets*

  • dammitall23

    I think he got that whole “make like a tree and leave” thing ALL mixed up.

  • Sarah L4d

    I watched that Mexican video, it’s still seared into my memory. 🙁

  • U have to be nuts to be able to do that to yourself… Damn!!!

  • LoKi4778

    Well…there’s that Russian kid who did himself with a circular saw…

  • WTFOMGLOL

    yeah, I just saw that one … I don’t know what the hell is wrong with people.

  • mean birch

    Link….

  • salepo

    At least he used the blunt side of the hatchet on her- probably why the wife survived.

  • Sarah L4d

    I’m pretty sure it was on liveleak. It’s been a long time since I watched it.

  • JellyBrains

    First the kid suiciding with the circular saw, now an old guy with a chainsaw???

  • Chatterbox

    “This item has been deleted because of a possible violation of our terms of service!” Wow, it mustve been REALLY bad if even LiveLeak removed it

  • i got to admit, Im impressed

  • Wonder if anyone saw that coming?

  • I def could think of better ways to off myself.

  • The All Seeing Eye

    Yes- beats Guns N Roses to shit!

  • Sarah L4d

    It was pretty fucking terrible. And sad. You could see on the two men’s faces that they knew what was coming and were surprisingly very brave. Seriously one of the most fucked up things I’ve watched…and I’ve been reading DD (amongst other things of this nature) for many a years now.

  • Sejanus

    Angry old geezer.
    Good riddance.

  • Diva of Destruction

    That’s some crazy stuff. Seems like he could have come up with a better way to kill himself.

  • AlabamDeb

    Is Home Depot running a sale or something? Jeeze!

  • melb1970

    wow….. just wow. Their golden years don’t appear so golden.. I hope the wife can recuperate from her injuries and somehow find more joy in her life.

  • PurpleAnn

    Awww, Hell no!

  • jansav

    Wow. Chainsaw, circular saw, those are literally ‘die hard’ suicides.

  • Inferus

    I’m assuming the price of gas is why he refused to use the chainsaw on anything but himself, selfish bastard.
