    Banker died after hiring two women for hanging role play

    A former City banker died in an “execution role play” after paying two women to humiliate him in woods, an inquest heard yesterday.

    By Martin Evans

    9:00AM BST 17 Sep 2011

    Colin Birch, 44, a former assistant vice-president of Deutsche Bank, had been turned down for a job on the same day that he paid the women to taunt him and call him a “loser” as he stood on a ladder with a noose around his neck.

    Mr Birch told them he was wearing a safety harness and asked them to kick away the ladder so that they could carry out a mock execution. The women refused and walked away laughing. One of the women, worried for Birch’s safety, returned moments later to find him dying. The harness he had assured them he was wearing failed, the inquest heard. Mr Birch, a married father of two, had been made redundant in 2009 and was having trouble finding new work.

    Louise Howard, who runs Katie’s Lovely Escorts, told the inquest that she received a call from Mr Birch on the morning of July 30 asking to arrange the “execution”.

    Mr Birch, who had previously had “seven girls attend to him” from the agency, asked for two women to meet him in woods on Dartford Heath, Kent, to “perform an execution”.

    The court heard that Mr Birch, who had been contacting Ms Howard regularly to see if the execution was arranged, sent her a text saying: “Just to clarify the role play. I will wear a harness to support me but will also have a noose round my neck for show. Girl will ask for execution fee and I will go to my place of execution. My crime is being a loser.

    “Girl kicks away stool and laughs and walks back to car without looking back so to show she has no feelings. Important stick to the role.”

    Alex Sturley told Gravesend coroner’s court that she and Marie Laurent had arrived at the scene with the driver for the agency, Dave Bowyer, at about 7pm and they followed Mr Birch into the woods believing they would be paid £30 each.

    Ms Sturley said that when they saw the noose hanging from a tree she had asked to see his harness and he showed her a round clip coming out the back of his jumper.

    She agreed that “he said nothing and it was as if he just wanted to get on with the role play”, so she said to him: “We are here for the execution money.” He handed over the cash before climbing the 3ft step ladder and attaching himself to the noose.

    Miss Sturley climbed the steps and gave him a kiss on the cheek, the coroner heard, and Miss Laurent could see “tears in his eyes as if he was getting overwhelmed by what was going on”.

    Despite having been told to kick the ladder away Miss Sturley said it “didn’t feel right” and the pair left as she “laughed loudly” as had been ordered. But worried for his safety she went back to check on the former banker.

    She found him turning blue and screamed for help from Mr Bowyer and the pair cut him down and tried to resuscitate him but he was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Det Sgt Lee Neiles told the hearing that although Mr Birch had researched public hangings by women there was no suicide note nor any evidence that he was contemplating suicide. The coroner, Roger Hatch, recorded an open verdict.
    "Slavery is the daughter of darkness; an ignorant people is the blind instrument of its own destruction; ambition and intrigue take advantage of the credulity and inexperience of men who have no political, economic or civil knowledge. They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar

    This is like cock-hanging yourself with shoelaces in a hotel closet. Smart.

    I think he's already been humiliated, which is why he did it. Jesus ! That wasn't a hanging.....it was a strangulation.

    Is that what you called them? Was Hampstead Heath too far for you?

    They were probably ashamed to have a banker in the family.

    What's the collective noun for 'banker'?
