London, Aug 14 (ANI): A Brit banker, who had just lost his high-flying job, paid two ignorant escort girls to help him commit suicide.
Married father-of-two Colin Birch, 44, hung from a tree after tricking them into becoming his "executioners".
Birch died in a wood in Dartford, Kent.
The two escort girls had hurled insults at the top City banker as he stood with a noose around his neck - believing it was all part of an elaborate sex game.
Birch had told them to meet him in a wood and pose as his executioners.
Marie Laurent and Alex Sturley found him in the noose, standing on a wooden step.
They said they left him for a moment before returning to find he had jumped.
"The girls believe they were used to help kill him without realizing what they were doing. It was death by hooker," the Sun quoted a police source as saying.
Birch of Erith, South East London was depressed after losing his job as an assistant vice president with City-based Deutsche Bank. (ANI)
