  hanging
A drop of this distance was rarely sufficient to break the prisoner's neck and they died by strangulation although in a lot of cases were knocked unconscious by the force of the drop and the impact of the knot against the side of the neck.
The last public hanging was that of Rainey Bathea, at Owensboro, Kentucky on the morning of August 14, 1936 for the murder and rape of a 70 year old white woman.
Hanging with no or insufficient drop typically produces death by strangulation (asphyxia) due to the weight of the person's body pulling down on the noose, causing it to tighten and constrict the trachea (air passage) and applying pressure to the large blood vessels in the neck.

 The process of judicial hanging
Hanging is the second most widely used method of execution in the world today (shooting being by far the most common form of capital punishment).
Hanging originated as a method of execution in Persia (now Iran) about 2500 years ago for male criminals only, (women were strangled at the stake for the sake of decency!) It was the method of choice in many countries as it produced a highly visible deterrent without the blood and gore of beheading.
Hanging was the normal form of execution in most countries up to the end of the 19th century when there was a general trend to abolition or to use more humane methods than the type of hanging used at that time (short drop).

 Hanging
Hanging came in various stages of severity: more serious crimes involved slow death and mutilation.
But if he be convicted of willful murder, done either upon pretended malice, or in any notable robbery, he is either hanged alive in chains near the place where the fact was committed (or else upon compassion taken first strangled with a rope) and so continued till his bones consume to nothing.
When willful manslaughter is perpetrated, beside hanging, the offender has his right hand commonly stricken off before or near unto the place where the act was done, after which he is led forth to the place of execution, and there put to death according to the law.

 eMedicine - Hanging Injuries and Strangulation : Article by William Ernoehazy, Jr, MD, FACEP
Synonyms and related keywords: judicial hanging, suicidal hanging, strangulation assault, autoerotic strangulation, compression injury, airway, neck, spinal cord, hanging injury, strangulation injury, compression of the neck, distraction of the neck, neck injuries, hangman fracture, decapitation, cerebral hypoxia, ischemic neuronal death, spinal cord injury, cervical spinal disruption
A hanging involves being suspended by the neck and can be classified as either "complete" or "incomplete." When the whole body is hung off the ground and does not touch the floor or platform at the end of the drop, the hanging is said to be complete.
In such cases, the mechanism of death is effectively decapitation, with distraction of the head from the neck and torso, fracture of the upper cervical spine (typically traumatic spondylolysis of C2 in the classic hangman fracture), and transection of the spinal cord.
