    Could you please refrain from covering the autopsy and its results?

    Not that I expect an answer or reaction or anything, but I think it way way more graceful and noble to let it all be. It feels a bit bizarre and shameful to read about a stranger’s autopsy on the internet, let alone about an actor on JJ.com. All in all, it feels wrong.

    Since there are so many drugs people take for depression, I hope he wasn’t trying something new that could have pushed him into a deeper depression. There are so many side effects and adverse reactions that people experience when they begin taking a new medication. Also many medications don’t achieve the full effect until a month or so after beginning it. I read some articles that mentioned he was battling depression went into a rehab facility in July to maintain sobriety and now its August.

  • Huh?

    @someguy: Why is it wrong? He was a celebrity and chose to live in the spotlight. How he died is a matter of RECORD. This is true for any NON CELEBRITY’s death as well.

    Additionally, if his death can help those who are considering suicide to get help, then all the better, pal.
