SNIFFER SUICIDE

Body hanging from ropeSpray can in pantsThe boy shown here was found hanging from a small tree behind his home.  His body was partially suspended, and his feet were in a drainage ditch.  A can of spray paint was found tucked into the front of his pants.  He was clutching an empty soda can in his left hand.  The can contained paint residue.  There was no note, and the family could offer no explanation for his suicide.

One of the ways the user conceals his abuse of inhalants is by spraying the inhalant into an empty soda can.  He then sniffs the fumes from the can.  In this way, the casual observer thinks the subject is drinking a soda rather than getting high from sniffing paint.
