This is so sad. If it was self-inflicted, to think this person felt there was nothing else to do but this, well, it saddens me. It saddens me even more to know that there likely is someone out there who may have cared about this person, and they are now the one(s) suffering. What a sad, vicious circle.

yep, it is horrible. This man was a friend of mine, as well as many people. We are all still in shock over this, no one had any idea he was so depressed in this manner..
