See? What did I tell you about all your victims in your puzzles dying in particularly gruesome manners?

Was this from a comic strip? Cartoon? Computer game? Book? Or just FYOTI?

Was he murdered by hanging?

What do we need to discover:
ID of the dead man?
ditto murderer?
Method?
Motive?
reason to conceal ID of victim?

You said the corpse was hanging upright - did the animal crawl to his head?
Fly to his head - a bat?
Did the murderer place the animal there?

was the head baited with something attractive to the scavenger?
