Question: How did they fake Eugene's suicide?

Chosen answer: If you're asking how the FBI, or anyone else, faked his suicide, in the show Eugene actually committed suicide and did not fake his death. If you're asking how, in real life, they were able to make it look like actor Robert Funaro was hung, it would have been no different than any other hanging stunt. A rig or brace is placed on the actor's back, under their shirt, that supports the weight of the actor when they are "hung" (or "hanged" depending on your word preference). The noose is lightly connected to the rope, say with wax, so that should an accident or malfunction occur with the rig, the noose would break away from the rope instead of the neck bearing the actor's weight. The rest is just acting.

Trivia

Whenever the mobsters in the Sopranos pay they almost always take a wad of cash out of their pocket and pull off the top 3-4 bills and hand it over. If Tony is paying for a pizza he pulls off 3-4 bills. If he's bribing someone he pulls off 3-4 bills. No matter what the amount is for that particular situation, it's always covered with the top 3-4 bills of the cash wad.
