Nonsuicidal self harm or injury is any intentional, self-directed behavior that causes destruction of body tissues but is not lethal per se. This behavior is manifested in a variety of forms, such as cutting, burning, severe abrading/scratching, and punching/hitting. Self-injury may include more rarely, auto-amputation or stabbing oneself.

Underpants thought to be Hauser's were kept for 163 years after he died?
