Re: Daryl's Death at The Magic Castle

You don't need a beam, almost any heavy object you can put a rope around will do. Doorknobs, plumbing underneath a faucet ....If you can't hang from something, you can always do it garrotte-style by spinning around like an alligator till it tightens., that how they do it in prison.
