If no one was there, and no cameras were there how exactly are they going to determine if it was foul play?

I mean, if it turns out that some villain lured someone to an airfield to check out a helicopter with no witnesses and no cameras, then somehow convinced them to get close enough to the whirring rotor blades that a quick flick of the collective could decapitate them, well, I almost want them to get away with it.

Of course, I am a villain myself, so.

I've always thought being decapitated by a helicopter would be more of a rapid series of blunt force traumas. The blades aren't sharp and if you get hit by one the others are sure to follow. Decapitation brings to the minds eye visions of guillotines and heads in baskets, I doubt there would be any head left in a case like this.

Your neck is a remarkably fragile mounting bracket for a heavy armored shell. Once the vertebrae break, there's not much to stop the tissues from tearing free.

Execution by hanging was an actually very delicate balance between strangulation and decapitation. It was very easy to screw up and either have the criminal suffer for minutes or create a giant mess.
