  • Even though they have multiple personalities, they still only have one body so it's suicide.

    It's like if you had a blue car and decided to paint it red, then after you painted it you sent it to the scrap yard. It's still the same car, just a different colour.

  • It depends who they were at the time of the event.

  • It depends on the evidence at the scene. Was there a sign of a struggle with the other personality? :D Did they argue and throw each each other around?

  • Even if you consider the other personality as another person, that's killing itself too

  • Suicide is murder. It's murdering yourself. In legal terms it would be classified as suicide.

    People with those dual personalities do not have two equal people inside them. A secondary identity manifests itself, that doesn't change the fact there is an original and primary identity (the real person).

  • Well, at the time it's happening, they would still have to be just one of the personas, it doesn't work like possession or something. Therefore it would still be killing oneself, doesn't matter who is committing the act. Especially when it's quite unusual for the different personalities to be aware of each other.
