Suicide is a frequent and significant form of unnatural death, especially from the perspective of forensic science. In every such case, it is necessary to attempt differentiating between suicide and other violent forms of death (homicide, accident), as well as to exclude the possibility of death due to natural causes. The diagnostic possibilities are, however, limited and forensic practice sometimes finds it difficult to differentiate between suicide, homicide, and accidental death. Although suicide is a complex human behaviour that cannot easily be predicted, a range of factors has been shown to contribute to it. There are complex, multiple factors involved in suicide and suicidal behaviour. To accomplish the suicide successfully a suicide may attempt more than one method depending upon the situation and the plan of the suicide. Cases with multiple simultaneous suicidal attempts (two or more) are known as complex suicides.1 When an individual repeatedly engages in suicidal behavior, the suicidal mode becomes highly accessible in memory and requires minimal triggering stimuli to be activated. This study presents nine complex suicide cases. All victims take insecticide ingestion in their first attempt. Hanging is the most preferable choice of suicidal method after first insecticide ingestion in all victims.
