Several murderers have used a wood chipper to dispose of a body. There are a number of drawbacks that may not be evident prior to starting.


Potential pitfalls:

(1) a paper trail for purchasing or renting the wood chipper

(2) there may be a need to dismember the body in order to get it into the chipper

(3) the chipper generates a mess of body pieces that can be retrieved later

(4) sufficient tissue residue may reside inside the device to allow for a genetic identification of the victim

(5) failing to clean a rented chipper


Ways to optimize the method:

(1) Drain the body of as much blood as possible.

(2) Freeze the body parts so that they are frozen when shredded.

(3) Totally destroy the chipper once done.

(4) Totally destroy all of the body pieces.
