Sounds like natural causes to me.

Asleep on a train track, hit by train, naturally, he died.

Satanic_Hamster: Back in my contracting days I did a number of jobs for New Jersey Transit.  One of the inspectors/engineers from NJT that was helping oversee one job got his start as a surveyor.  He once had a project where they had to survey/document all the body parts if someone got hit by a train.

They were hoping to come up with a way of double checking / predicting / proving the speed of a train vs. how far the body parts flew.

All the way to see-carcass junction.

MBooda: Old_Chief_Scott:
When the guy stands there and looks the engineer in the eye  it's obviously not murder.

The dead can be very useful sometimes. They've helped me out of tough spots more than once.  First, they don't talk. Second, they can be made to look alive if I manage it right.  And third, if you shoot 'em, there's no worry 'cause they're dead already. Understand?

Was I supposed to hear that passage being read to me by Michael Weston?  Because I did.

SirTanon: "The train's engineer told police she saw Jacobs sitting on a piece of wood in between the tracks. When she sounded the whistle and activated emergency braking Jacobs looked up, but did not move. "

Yup.  Suicide.

You mean a railroad TIE, Madman engineer?
