Can you crucify yourself?

Recently I read a story on the internet, about a man found in South Korea who had been crucified. The scene as the police found it appeared to recreate the crucifixion of Christ. He had a crown of thorns on his head, had a wound on his side, had been whipped and  he was found nailed to a cross, with two other crosses one on each side.

Unusual maybe, unheard of no…

Why am I wasting your time with this you may wonder?           

Well if for no other reason, then the last line of the story. The South Korean police were investigating if the man had committed suicide or not?

WHAT…SUICIDE??? How on God’s green earth can you commit suicide via crucifixion?  I actually sat with a couple of friends and we talked about this. We do not see how it would be possible for a individual to drill holes and both his palms and feet (apparently the autopsy found a power drill was used to create the holes) we do not feel anyone would have the strength to drill these holes themselves. Not to mention how could you drill a hole in your palm while holding the drill. Then how do you hang yourself on the cross. You could probably do your feet and one hand, but the second one is going to be loose.

Then of course the conversation turned to, if your friends helped you would it be murder or not.

Yes before you ask, we had too much time on our hands…
