Police in Russia are investigating claims a boy beheaded himself with a chainsaw after losing a computer game.

A criminal case has been opened into incitement to suicide after 15-year-old Pavel Matveev’s body was found in the village of Mogochino in Tomsk region.

Reports say the boy went out into his yard this morning and ‘switched on a chainsaw and sawed off his own head’.

Russian media cited local sources saying that he was addicted to a computer that his single mother had bought for him. It was unclear what ‘game’ he was playing.

But a female source quoted by Plohie Novosti and Novosti V Tomske news sources saying his death came after playing a computer game.

‘This is what killed him,’ she was quoted as saying.

He ‘spent hours at his computer’ and his ‘nerves’ gave in after a game, she claimed.
