    He stood on a block of ice, then presumably jumped off and hanged himself. When he was found, the ice had melted.

    He was a very very poor man. He had gone for many years with no light and finally got enough money saved up to buy a lantern(his only possession other than a ladder,a rope, and some duct tape) but he wanted to hang it like a light so he made a loop the size of the lantern's height and stuck the lantern in the noose tightly. Unfortunately about a week later the lantern fell and shattered and the man was back to living with no light.

    A few weeks later the man is trying to sleep on the bare floor and he hears pit pat pit pat, he's got a damned leak. He doesn't have a bucket of course, but he does have a roll of duct tape and a ladder. So he decides to climb up onto the roof in the middle of the night to try to fix the hole because he can't sleep. It is raining so the roof is quite slippery and it just so happens that the roof is very old and that is why there is a leak. He ends up falling through the roof and his head gets caught in the rope, and the leak eventually turns into a puddle.
