Subject: RE: Obit: death of UK child killer Ian Brady
I'm pretty certain that Pierrepoint describes the effects of hanging on females in his book - it's a long time since I read it, maybe Eliza could confirm? I'm almost certain that it's where I first heard of the expulsion of internal organs, and of the practice of using canvas pants to retain what came out. Doesn't sound like an urban myth to me, nor should it to KAoH - after all, AP was one of the top 'experts' in his field.

One more example of the revolting barbarity of capital punishment. There is no justification.
