Dead man found in LAX restroom, his head covered in a bag and hands bound

September 15, 2010 | 11:10 am

A man whose head was covered in a bag and who had his hands bound was found dead Wednesday morning in a restroom at Terminal 3 at Los Angeles International Airport, authorities said.

Airport police were called to the bathroom shortly before 8 a.m. and found a body slumped in a stall, according to sources familiar with the case. They called Los Angeles police, who dispatched detectives with the department's robbery-homicide division to investigate.

The sources said it was not immediately clear if the death was a suicide or a homicide.

[Updated at 12:30 p.m.: Los Angeles police said that a preliminary investigation indicates that the man in the restroom died from a possible suicide. They said the case has been turned over to the Los Angeles County Coroner to determine official cause of death. They also stressed that the investigation was in its early stages.]

Maybe I am missing something here, but how can you bind your own hands with any degree of effectiveness?

suicide with an attempt to make it look like homocide?

Just wondering what made them think it may be suicide. bag over head, hands tied seems to scream homocide to me.

You could use those twistie-ties that coppers sometimes use as handcuffs. I don't think it would be that hard.

that would still require you to bind your hands in front of you. which wouldn't prevent you from ripping the bag off your head in a panic. it's mighty hard to bind your own hands behind your back.

I guess they don't want to release many details in the event this turns into a criminal investigation.
