    suggestive

    Hello Jon. Thanks.

    Is the suggestion one of strangulation by garrotting? But surely that is a bit slow?

    Broken neck would work, but . . .

    Cheers.

      Hi Lynn.

      The usual considerations are:
      - Suffocation, by hand over mouth, and pinch the nose. Can prevent a cry for help, but does not stop blood flow in or out of the brain.
      - Strangulation by hands around the throat, may stop breathing, may also restrict blood flow out of the brain, but not into the brain.
      - Strangulation by cord, will prevent a cry for help, will arrest breathing, will prevent blood flow both into and out of the brain.

      Strangulation by a cord is thee swiftest method of the three, and still used by modern military because of that fact.

      With Mylett, what other method could have been employed?
      The same question should be considered with Stride also.

        in accord

        Hello Jon. Thanks.

        But still, even with cord, 30-60 seconds?

        "With Mylett, what other method could have been employed?"

        Well, assuming it was murder, a cord was quite likely. My problem is in comparison to Polly and Annie. As your own drawing demonstrates, Polly looks like a hand over mouth and, I would add, knife across throat. Likewise, Annie--according to Dr. Phillips--seems to have been seized by the chin, etc.

        Now you mentioned Liz. Forensically, all we need is a pull on her scarf and, voila! she is falling and has her throat cut in about two seconds.

        None of the three require, or seem to show signs of, a cord.

        Cheers.

          Are you looking for the minimum time required to prevent the tongue from extending, yet also cause unconsciousness?
          Correct positioning on the throat might also play a part.

            time

            Hello Jon. Thanks.

            Well, I'm thinking about partial strangulation.

            In Annie's case, I am counting about five minutes for the entire fracas--from "No" until she is unconscious and lain down against the fence.

            Any insights or illustrations are ALWAYS welcome.

            Cheers.
