    The paper describes an unquestionable case of suicide by strangulation. The case is of special interest because in addition to two single knots there were two double knots in the noose. As a rule strangulation with a double-knotted noose is seen only in cases of murder. The data attained at autopsy and the findings of the detailed police investigation are discussed.
