This is a personal family matter that should not have been disclosed to the public. His family is grieving for their loss. Nobody needed to know he committed suicide. His demons are his own business, not ours. RIP.

How sad! Someone with true talent has passed. And yet that coke-whore Sweatney is honored all over this ass-kissing land. Give me a small break!
