Does strangulation kill you by cutting off circulation or from not being able to breathe?
I boy in my town died when the assailent got him into what is known as a 'scissor hold' where the quadriceps are pressing on the throat and many said that he 'strangIed' him. so did the victim die from having his carotid artery restricted (died of interrupted circulation) or from not being able to breathe (asphixiation/suffocation)
it was 2nd degree murder btw
the killer was provoked over many years
