He probably killed her in the first place, so his remorse got the best of him.

such a tragedy :(

WTF?!!?!?!?! What happened???

OMG… I feel really sorry for Brittany’s mom. First she finds her daughter dead and now she finds her son-in-law. Awful :(


the poor mother :( finding both of them dead

Death is always unfortunate and tragic, but that guy sure had a knack for coming off as a total creep.

WOW! didnt expect that.

wow… I know that he had the tendancy to come off as creepy to people, but I felt like he was very depressed over Brittany’s death. I just keep thinking about Brittany’s mom, because he was all she had left to help her through losing her daughter, and now he’s gone… RIP Simon and Brittany.

He did really seem totally lost after Brittany died!!! Very, very sad.


@Geezus: I agree! Probably died from a guilty conscience

May his soul rest in peace.

How strange is it that it was the mom who found Brittany and now she finds the husband.
Plus the mom and Brittany’s husband had been living together in the same house for the last five months. The same house where Brittany died.

It’s so so strange.
