In the middle of August I met a new friend. We met by chance. He was charming and interesting and we made an instant connection.
I was having problems in my relationship and my friend tried to help me sort through all of it.
I got a text from him Oct 10 to which I responded. I never heard from him again. After a week went by I started to make phone calls and eventually found out that he was dead. He had been telling me his heart was racing the week before I last heard from him so I assumed he had had a heart attack.
Now his family is in town and it's their opinion that he committed suicide. He wrote a will on Oct. 4 (he was in contact with me that day) He died on Oct 11, and was found Oct 13 when a welfare check was made by the authorities. A family member told me he staged the house as if he knew they were coming.
I went from distaught at finding about his death to finding it was most likely at his own hands.
