The goal of this presentation is to present a case of homicide-suicide in an elderly couple, characterized by an unusual complex suicide achieved by three different tools: a knife, a razor blade, and a claw hammer. This presentation will impact the forensic science community by presenting the case of a homicide-suicide in an old couple, where the murderer garroted his wife with an elastic band, and then he tried to kill himself first hitting his head with a claw hammer and then cutting his neck and arms with a razor blade, and stabbing the chest and neck with a knife. Moreover claw hammer self-inflicted lesions on the scalp are very rare, in particular in association of knife and razor blade and in a case of homicide-suicide.
