Former Brit Boxer Cummins Found Dead, Dismembered
by David P. Greisman
Retired British boxer Shawn Cummins, who mostly fought between junior middleweight and middleweight, was found dead and dismembered last week in his home in England, according to the Leicester Mercury.
Cummins was 44. He had been retired since 1995 after losing a bid for the British Boxing Board of Control’s middleweight title, ending his career with a record of 22-6-1 with 14 knockouts.
The article said Cummins had been paralyzed in an accident in 2004 and was bedridden. He was last seen alive on Sept. 1. Cummins’ body parts were found in freezers.
A 28-year-old acquaintance of his has been arrested, according to the article.

[QUOTE=Light_Speed;12528191]No euthanasia refers to the practice of intentionally ending a life in order to relieve pain and suffering. Poisoning is just a method of euthanasia. We don't know how the man died, the dismemberment was most likely post mortem.[/QUOTE] If…Comment by Light_Speed on 09-18-2012
[QUOTE=RichCCFC;12526675]and then his friend chopped his body up into pieces and stored it in freezers? RIP[/QUOTE] What is he supposed to do? Leave the body as it is and get arrested for murder? [QUOTE=MASTER1454;12527910]Nah, euthanasia is poisoning, not dismemberment ......[/QUOTE]…Comment by Drunk Punch on 09-18-2012
This is mental. Perhaps he asked his friend to take his life/end his pain and then he didn't know how to dispose of the body?Comment by Blue Mercury on 09-18-2012

[QUOTE=Light_Speed;12526511]Wow that's crazy. Maybe it's a case of euthanasia, the guy couldn't stand living like that after being an athlete and asked his friend to take his life. I'm just speculating.[/QUOTE] Nah, euthanasia is poisoning, not dismemberment ......Post a Comment/View More User Comments (13)
