    A method of execution in which the victim's throat is slashed vertically, then his tongue is pulled out through the gaping wound toward the sternum, after which the victim usually dies of asphyxiation or blood loss.

    Etymology: First attested in 1981: Colombian, from its frequent use as a method of intimidation during La Violencia (circa 1948–1958) + necktie, from the resulting macabre resemblance of the victim’s tongue to that of a necktie’s as it dangles over the chest.


  1. Colombian necktie

    A Colombian necktie is a method of execution wherein the victim's throat is slashed and his or her tongue is pulled out through the open wound. Its origin coincides with the outbreak of La Violencia, the Colombian civil war which began in 1948 with the murder of leader Jorge Eliecer Gaitan. The Colombian necktie is sometimes erroneously credited to drug kingpin Pablo Escobar, but this infamous method of assassination was documented as early as 1950. It was later found that Cosa Nostra used it 100 years before in the warring city states era of Italy. It was intended as a method of psychological warfare, meant to scare and intimidate.
