Suicide at Mel's Place

3/19/2008 8:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ a construction worker committed suicide at one of Mel Gibson's homes today.

It happened at Mel's Agoura Hills home -- near Malibu. The construction worker was 48-years-old. We're told he hanged himself. The body was found by the job site foreman.

The Sheriff's substation in Lost Hills took the call at 8:07 AM -- that's the same station where Mel was taken after his DUI arrest in 2006.

Mel was not at the house when the body was discovered. A law enforcement source says no one from Gibson's family was living at the house -- it is currently under heavy construction.

The house is less than a mile from his church -- The Holy Family Catholic Church -- where Mel's daughter was married back in September, 2006.

Mel has never lived on the compound.

UPDATE
: Law enforcement sources say the body was found hanging in the addition to the home that was being built and was in "full-body rigor mortis" and the hanging could have occurred last night.

LIFE IS LIFE    

A suicide
Quick!Tell the coroner young Blake has died
He suffered from a severe case of suicide
No one yet has learned the truth
Such a sad waste of life and youth
A scene of blood mixed with violence and gore
And there lay you blake dead on the floor

His hands still clenched onto his gun
His note sad nothing but “I suppose Im done”
Yet in the one eye still visible to see
A tear was apparent but as dark as the sea
There must have been pain in this young boys heart
Though that’s what the first bullet tore right apart

Also wounds on both of his wrists
Telling his story and life in a twist
No chance of survival after so many tactics
Whatever he wanted he was sure to attack it
So terrible is such a young ones ascension
Yet its quite apparent that was his intention.

Suicide
I slit my wrists
the pain comes fast
i watch the blood drain
on the floor below my feet
scars and wounds cover my
body as i watch it happen
death is on the way i stare
at the sky wondering why?
The suicide well be fast and
harmless as i raise the knife
to my throat my breathe
comes in slow and fast
i feel the knife go
in deep and uneven
then i fall as my blood covers
my cold dead face...

It is indeed Hanged himself... hung himself is almost correct.

Takes me back the song UnBreak My Heart.. which is ungrammatically correct.
Written for idiots, I suppose.

Maybe he killed himself, when he heard the storyline for Mel's new movie.. or upon seeing Mel's hairline.

Hey Albert:



Since the abolition of capital punishment in this country murderers are not hanged if they are found guilty.

Correct entry: hanged
The error was: (c) hung That would have been your answer! lol

Follow this simple rule if it already has not been posted:

The simple explanation of which past participle of the verb hang to use is that people are hanged by the neck and pictures are hung on the wall.

Suicide is deadly,
so don't flirt with it

Suicide is sneaky,
so be careful

Suicide and death are closely related,
so be careful which one you chose

Suicidemay help you,
but destroy others

Suicide can kill
but not as bad as the lies

Suicide is my best friend
that I can no longer hide

Suicide goes good with the blade,
and the blade goes with my wrist

Suicide helped me
it helped me die
