The sad irony is that he felt his life was ruined by reality tv and the invasion of his privacy. (clearly there were other contributing factors he did not want to acknowledge) Now the most excrutiatingly detailed description of the end of his life and the condition of his corpse are out there for all to see, So even in death he has no peace. Does anyone benefit from being on these shows in the long run?

Bruising is inconsistent with the mode of suicide....

Not gruesome at all. Pretty normal report considering the cir****tances of death. What stood out for me is how healthy this man was - especially the details concerning his heart and other vital organs. For his age he was fit and healthy - his problems were all temporary. I say what a selfish thing to do when there are so many people fighting for their life and others on donor waiting lists!

This is pretty disrespectful reporting. Put yourselves in the families shoes. I don't mind gossip but this is very poor taste.

That was a waste of time... where was the gross part, sounded like a normal report to me. I bet the one from Ryan Dunn was a gross one.

Graphic?

Hardly.

Some overpaid, under worked "celebrity" decided to hang himself, who cares?

Something definitely is fishy. Who made all those cuts on him? Why was one foot on the floor?

Why would you post this?

This is going too far, someone died. They deserve to rest in peace, and TMZ posts their freaking Coroner's report?

ANY respect for the family? Remove the damn thing, you haggish reporters. I love your site but right now you all deserve a beating.

WEll, they did say that Russell had gay tendencies when the suicide first came out and that he was into S&M. Maybe, consistent with the bruising and/or lacerations, he had a rendevous with another man and possibly things got out of control, maybe the other man strangled him during sex as a way to turn him on and he accidentally strangled him and made it look like a suicide. Or, maybe he had an incident with a man and with all the guilt from everything and being in the closet as well, he couldn't live with himself and hung himself afterwards. Or, maybe, he had a jolted lover (male) that was upset over Russell possibly trying to end things with him or possibly still in love with his wife and wanted to work things out with her and beat/whipped him causing the bruising and lacerations and then hung him out to dry (no pun intended) as a means of getting back at him. You know that Russell needed to stay out of the public eye with that kind of s*it, so I'm sure that the characters that he was having these encounters with weren't the classiest/unshaddiest of people.

Is there some reason that TMZ is persecuting this poor man and his family? Why can't you just let it be? Show some respect and leave Russell Armstrong & family alone and let them grieve.
I can see why he did it.

Just because it's public record, doesn't mean you have to make it available to the public...shame on you Harvey
