One Head in a Duffel Bag

Man Found Dead in L.A. Airport Terminal

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.

Got to love that last line -- so I guess if you're going to commit suicide by asphyxiation, you first want to make sure to tie your hands together... I know that police want to make sure they have all their facts straight before reporting a death as either a murder, an accident or a suicide, but this is ridiculous. I'm pretty sure we know what happened to this guy.
