Judas and the unreliable witnesses

If it please the court to consider: 

Matthaios:

“I have sinned,” he said.  “I have brought an innocent man to his death.”  Then he threw the money down in the Temple and left them, and went and hanged himself

 

Apollinaris:     

This Judas did not die by hanging . . .  he fell headlong, his belly burst and his guts spilled out.

 

Loukas:

This Judas, after buying a plot of land with the price of his treachery, fell forward on the ground and burst open, so that his entrails poured out.

 

Papias:

He was crushed by a wagon, and his guts fell out.
