I saw a report that a hunt-supporter was killed(accidently) in England. Had to do with hunt-moniters were using a gyrocopter to keep a eye on hunts; hunt supporters claimed the craft was scaring the horses. Apparently, this fellow went to have words with those using the gyrocopter and he was struck by a rotor and killed.

Can anyone get a confirm on this?

Before AOL decided to shut itself down on me and I lost what I had on the screen.... I was just reading another article that said there have been 2 men arrested in connection with this incident.

I believe the details we have are up to date.
I read the papers on-line every day, so I'll keep a lookout for anything further.

Well considering there must be an on going investigation I wouldn't expect much more for a while....unless there is a confession or something like that.

Like did his head land on his chest or his back after it was almost cut off?

Yes, gravity would play a very large part on how his head landed.
