    Englishmen, make note that the Welsh are being taught in their schools how to avoid blood spray when cutting a throat. Me wonders what they're up to!

After all you have TWO carotid arteries and two jugular veins, along with other veins and arteries. My point being if you were to cut the throat deeply, almost all the way around, wouldn't it be near impossible to avoid getting sprayed?

          From this animation it appears that the veins and arteries are "clustered" on the left and right side of the neck. Therefore if you cut the throat almost all the way around how could you possibly hope to direct the victim's head (and body) to avoid getting sprayed?

          I have read about a killer using a scarf to wrap around the neck before he cut the throat to prevent the blood from spraying all over him.

            I think there can be an argument made for only a single kill being potentially bloodless as far as the killer was concerned. At the very least hands or gloves or cuffs would have been bloody at 3 of the other 4, and at one he would have been heavily bloodied likely from the waist up.

            Its not as if he stood around and waited for them to bleed out, and at least 3 of them he stuck his hands into the wounds, one perhaps seconds after the throat cut based on his time. Sprays one thing, but none of them were proven bled dry before he cut either.

            Best regards.
