Luciole Press Blog: The incredible, thought-provoking short story "To Kill a Child," by Stig Dagerman Stig Dagerman Image: HERE To Kill a ChildStig Dagerman It’s a peaceful day as sunlight settles onto the fields of the plain. Soon bells will be ringing, because today is Sunday. Between fields of rye, two children have just come upon a footpath that they have never taken before, and in the three villages along the plain, windowpanes glisten in the sun. Orange Coast Magazine I read something on the Internet one recent evening that made a brief and tangential reference to a serial killer preying on Marines in Southern California in the 1970s and early ’80s. Having been stationed at Camp Pendleton, I thought, “How come I never heard about this?” I had returned to the East Coast upon my discharge in September 1980, but still.

Lost All Hope: The web's leading suicide resource For information on the most lethal methods of suicide, a good starting point is the statistics on the number of successful suicides by method (see Suicide statistics). There is also a much published study from 19951, where 291 lay persons and 10 forensic pathologists rated the lethality, time, and agony for 28 methods of suicide for 4,117 cases of completed suicide in Los Angeles County in the period 1988-1991. They were asked to rate each method as follows: Lethality: How likely is the method to cause death (where 0% is no chance, and 100% is absolute certainty) Time: An opinion on the length of time the method will require to produce death Agony: The amount of pain and discomfort you would expect from the use of the particular method (ranked on scale of 0 to 100 where 0 is no pain/discomfort and 100 is the most pain/discomfort possible) However, it should be noted that different studies produce different results of the fatality of different methods.

After graduating, he did what many young men of his time did, and traveled to Egypt for two years, returning to Boston to marry his sweetheart and become a lawyer.
