Judas
“Judas Iscariot (right), retiring from the Last Supper”

Here’s one translation.  With the reward he got for his wickedness, Judas bought a field; there he fell headlong, his body burst open and all his intestines spilled out.

And here’s King James Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.

Sounds more like he fell from a great distance and when he hit his body broke open. The Greek word translated as “burst asunder” or “burst open” means to burst asunder with a crack, crack open.

Here’s a good article on the two references to the death of Judas in the four gospels (one mentions hanging and the other mentions falling)
