Columbian necktie (Crime)
A Colombian necktie (Spanish: corbata colombiana or corte corbata) was a form of post-mortem mutilation consisting of a deep incision under the victim’s chin, through which the tongue is pulled out and left hanging down in grisly resemblance to a necktie. A male victim’s genitals are sometimes also severed and put in the mouth.
