Once I dreamed I was getting a deep relaxing massage. Then I awoke to discover it was just a knife in my back.

"the victim claims he had been drinking that night"

Need we read more!

Sounds like pool room talk or an A .A. old timers meeting :)
Might make a good thread for here:) I could start, although I am not to proud of many of them :) But in general broken bones, massive blood loss, awoke from a coma, total amnesia?:)lost 13 mo's?:)
No knives as of yet,but I'll keep checking. Rick

'Police have been unable to track down the attacker, and say the stabbing victim has not been cooperating in their investigation.'

...the victim knows who stabbed him and obviously plans to settle it out of the court system...

If he rolled over an made it go deep enough to wake up dead, would that be a suicide?

Imagine getting up in the middle of the night to scratch that pesky back itch against the bedroom door jamb. Ow! That'd wake you up.

It's possible the knife hit nerves that otherwise would have caused intense pain. I had a Lipoma tumor in my back once. I didn't know it was there until one day I noticed that every time I moved a certain way, I'd feel a sensation in my back that would cause me to suddenly giggle or laugh. It was like I was being tickled. Anyway, it was discovered that I had this benign tumor. I had it removed in the outpatient facility at the hospital. I had a localized anesthetic, although the doctor began cutting almost immediately before it took effect. It never really hurt, even afterward or days later. Oddly, I could feel the blood oozing out from the wound when the doctor was cutting. It felt like ice water. Also, I could see most everything the doc was doing. I was facing a cabinet with glass so I saw it all. The stitches didn't hurt - even after the supposed anesthetic wore off. The real horror was after a few days, I was shopping and the wound somehow came open. I remember some lady screaming and running up to me. She thought I had been stabbed or something, because there was blood all over my back. I never felt any sensation or pain as one would feel if their back had been entirely wet with blood from an opened wound. I went to the ER and my doctor came in to see me and told me I probably should have been kept in the hospital because the surgery was pretty deep. Nice. Did he once think that I could have possibly bled to death!? Anyway, the point is, when nerves are cut, a person may not be aware of an injury. That's why we are meant to feel pain when something goes wrong, otherwise we wouldn't know it and would bleed to death or be unaware that something was wrong.

He was' living on the edge':)

One piece in the article really
Made me smile>>

"So, he asked his brother to take a look to see if he could find anything wrong. According to Trenton police Lt. Mark Kieffer, that's when the brother informed him of his unusual condition.

Unusual condition????!!!,

He is numb to it. A knife in the back is much less painful than being married.

No, it would be manslaughter as he wouldn't have been able to kill himself in his sleep if someone hadn't planted the knife in his back in the first place. It is all about "approximate cause" under the law. Even if someone else exacerbated the situation, and death resulted, the initial attacker is still guilty.

I read of a recent situation like that where a woman stabbed a man, and he passed out in the street and was ran over twice by two different drunk drivers. So who's responsible? Really, all 3 contributors should do time. But in the eyes of the law, the woman set it all in motion and would be guilty of at least manslaughter 1. If I was her lawyer, I'd probably plead her to that unless the DA is willing to offer less, since she might get murder 2 in a trial.

I'm wondering if the 51% that re-elected the current POTUS have discovered the knives in their backs yet?
