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

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

    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.

    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.
