It's your apparent interpretation of the scenario that I find absurd. I  
agree with those who say identity is about agency. I think a judge would  
agree also.

The defendant's suicide defense is absurd, your honor! According to  
witnesses, the two independent agents were arguing, when suddenly the  
accused pulled out a knife and repeatedly stabbed the victim in the  
throat, killing him. The victim's death was not voluntary, thus it cannot  
be ruled a suicide. It was murder, your honor, plain and simple!

I was hoping Twain's humor might help you see the absurdity of your  
position. :)
