Abstract

Abstract Two cases of planned complex suicide are presented. In both cases, the suicidal persons shot themselves after making sure that in the sequel their bodies would be burnt. In the first case, a 65-year-old man had shot himself in the mouth and consequently fell into a fire he had lighted before. In the second case, a 43-year-old man set fire to his flat and shot himself directly afterwards. On the basis of the reported cases, a short literature review on planned complex suicides is given.
