I listened to this...and I shouldn't have. My son took his own life Jan 11 2010. This broke my heart...I am so sad for Jaret. I almost feel an understanding of sadness and desperation my son may have felt... so so heart breaking.

Let me just say to put this as news is so wrong, i am disgusted. I have been in his place, it is a place of darkeness, dispare and no hope. Luckily i was saved from losing my life, he wasn't so lucky. My heat bleeds for Jeret Petersen, he obviously felt that there was no way out. I hope you are now at peace Jeret, to his family, i hope you can get through this and keep him in your hearts. Remember his name everyone, you owe him that much. He obviously didn't feel he was worthy of it, but he is. Honour him, goodbye Jeret. I wish you held on a little bit longer.

Please remove this. I couldn't imagine the pain this poor soul was in. REMOVE THIS NOW PLEASE. This shows that we (as a people) have lost our humanity. Allow his parents to grieve with DIGNITY, please remove this.

I feel so sad for his family. Such a talented man should not be done like this. I think at that moment he couldn't help himself to escape away from the negative depression. I don't listen the record. The TMZ should not post it coz it is not good to learn.

I also refuse to listen to the tape. This is over the top and wrong on every level. Does no one in charge have a heart or brain?!! What if this was your family member. Show some class and remove it.

No one needs to hear that. You should take it down. I've lost all respect for this website and the people who work for it. "celebraties" are people. Not science expiraments under magnification. Therefore this is personal. You should be ashamed of your jobs. Actions happen, you fiend others. Your job is worthless but the public loves it. Would love to see how the industry worked if athletes and celebraties followed you around all day drooling at everything you do just to exploit it, im sure when things went back to normal youd think twice about stuff like this. Only in america is media like this.

TMZ. How many more posters have to post their disgust with you beefore you realize you crossed a line. If you have any compassion in the world, take this off. This was a human being in great sufferering whose family is hurting even more. How could you stoop so low? I refused to listen and it looks like most other posters did, as well. Redeem yourself adn take this off.

I refuse to listen to this and I hope you take it down. This was every parent's worst nightmare and you just made it worse. Please, if you have any dignity, take this down

It is so beyond tasteless and classless to post this. It is an insult to him and his family and friends to glorify something so private and tragic.
