I think that's actually the common consensus as to what he did, especially when compared with the number of scars already on his back, most likely from failed attempts. The guy probably walked around most of the time with steel rods in his body just to prevent the holes from closing. All of that and then to die from swallowing a needle because a voice in his head told him to do it. Definitely bizarre stuff.
