Another one!! And let loads on here fail!!!



Hong Kong mother and daughter, 7, found dead in possible murder-suicide

Investigators discover note and burnt charcoal in room; pair may have been dead for more than three days

A single mother and her seven-year-old daughter were found dead in a Hong Kong flat where police discovered a suicide note and burnt charcoal.

Firefighters broke down the door and saw the pair’s decomposing bodies in a room.

Some burnt charcoal and a suicide note were also found. The woman had written in the note that she had been troubled by relationship issues and that she did not want to leave her daughter alone.

Police believed the mother had killed herself and the girl by burning the charcoal. Forensic experts said the two might have been dead for more than three days.

The domestic helper reportedly told police that her employer, a manager at a clinic, had asked her to take a holiday. When she returned from her break, she found the flat locked from the inside. Unable to contact her employer, she found a place to stay through her agency.


The helper called police on Tuesday evening after returning to the flat and finding it still locked.

Assistant Mong Kok district commander Chung Chi-ming said the force would investigate the case as a murder-suicide.

This is the city’s second such incident in two weeks.

On July 24, a 35-year-old woman allegedly threw her two-year-old boy from a building in Yau Tong Estate before jumping from the block.

The mother died in hospital. The boy was critically injured, though his condition later improved to serious. Police found a suicide note, blood and three knives in the bedroom. Investigators believe the woman had also wounded herself with a knife.

Chemicals-related CTBing is popular in Asia. Be it CO, H2S, hydrogen cyanide, household cleaners mixed with other toxic products... Media reports show every kind of concoction

Oh yes, I saw this one recently. It's more popular in Asia but hanging and jumping are just as many.

So can we use the charcoal method at home ?
Yes, as long as the room is sealed/almost air-tight

It appears to be popular but I’ve also heard jumping from heights is also relatively popular in Asia.

Yes, and hopefully you lose consciousness in about half an hour or less.

Just to be clear and i'm sorry if i'm being repetitive here, so there is no need for it to be outdoors (even the first burning) ? Because not having access to outdoors was my biggest problem with this method.

Thank you.

You can still light the charcoals indoors, there'll be smoke during so preferably a room with ventilation first. Others always suggest to light then up some place else first just to get the smoke and fires out of the way, which will cause more discomfort if done in the same room to pass out in.

Are you one of the guys who did some testing? I plan to ctb with this method as well. I'm just not certain with the charcoals I will be using, are Kingsford Original briquettes good enough? I've read some failures both in 8ch and around here, some of them used said briquettes. Could it be that the briqs maybr have not enough carbon in them, or they failed because of some other mistake like ventilation, quantity or survival instinct.Unfortunately, these are the only briquettes I can easily obtain around here.
