    That's so sad.
    Me too, buddy. :( I was officially diagnosed as clinically depressed as a teenager, but had felt that way as far back as I could remember. At 5 or 6, I first thought about suicide. After I had my daughter, also as a teen, I suffered major postpartum depression (not psychosis, thankfully). I've spent years, and countless thousands of dollars, on therapy. I'm now well-controlled on medication.

    What worked for you, @rootabaga? I'm assuming you're doing well now. Please let me know if that's not the case--and my PMs are always open for you. :)
    Two people very dear to me couldn't see that pinpoint of light. My close friend, a Gulf War Marine veteran, ate his gun on September 26, 2007; my brother, an Air Force veteran and medically retired from the LAFD, did the same on July 24, 2014.

    Just before I came here, I read a developing story--a 13-year-old boy killed himself at school. So tragic...
    Very sorry indeed.

    That's a surprise.

    I think the first time I saw him was in the original of "The Mechanic" with Charles Bronson.

    RIP Jan Michael, thanks for sharing your talent (and your excellent smile) with us all.

    I don’t follow the pageant crowd, so I don’t know who she is. Far too young, though, way too young. :(

    RIP, Lotte, and may your family find peace, somehow, through their grief.

    RIP Keith Flint you ****ing legend. I'd have thought he'd been mentioned before but if he had I missed it. Not a lot of people will recognise the name but most will recognise the face. The front man for my all-time favourite band, The Prodigy. You definitely will be missed by me and millions :( tenor.gif

    I’m straight as an arrow, but recognized he was a hottie. ;)

    I’d never have recognized him in his later years, though:

    I appreciate men who are comfortable enough in their own skin that they can see, and appreciate, how handsome another man is. :)

    I'm the same way with women, having no problem saying "wow, she's sexy" or "look at those legs!"
    It's sad...he's unrecognizable. Unfortunately, quite a few famous people end up that way. :(

    Well, especially when they've fallen into the lure of drugs. Apparently he was very much into coke (and who knows what else), which supposedly flushed the Airwolf series. I recall Robin Williams doing standup a long time ago and he said that cocaine was God's way of telling you you're making way too much money. Funny, but not when it eats you up physically and mentally as well as financially. :(

    Olympic track cyclist Kelly Catlin, 23, who helped the U.S. women's pursuit team win the silver medal at the Rio de Janeiro Games in 2016, died Friday at her residence on Stanford University's campus in California.. Her father reports that she took her own life.

    Article: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/u-s-olympic-cyclist-kelly-catlin-found-dead-her-home-n981591

    RIP, Kelly. I'm deeply saddened; words fail me. :( May your family, friends and loved ones find peace, somehow, through their grief.

    I just read this update about Jan-Michael Vincent from KCBS:

    Vincent passed away on Feb. 10 at a hospital in Asheville, North Carolina. The certificate signed by a doctor says he died of natural causes and no autopsy was performed.

    Natural causes? He must have been under treatment for something, hence being in the hospital and not requiring an autopsy at only 74.

    An autopsy would only be performed if the cause of death was not known, suspicious, or criminality involved.
    'Natural causes' just means the cause of death is not being revealed. That doesn't mean they don't know why he died.

    Not here in California, that I'm aware of. "Natural causes" means just that, and usually only applies to the elderly. When someone who's 96 dies in their sleep, without having been undergoing treatment for anything, and there's no sign of foul play, it's natural causes.

    Vincent was in a hospital. That means he was being treated...for something. If he was born with a heart problem, and his heart stopped, that may be considered natural causes. But if he had just had heart surgery and then his heart failed, that wouldn't be natural.

    I'm just hypothesizing here, LV, not being argumentative. :) Living in LA, we see coroners and police chiefs and prominent doctors on TV every time a celebrity dies here. I can't recall another young-ish person dying, while hospitalized, and having it ruled natural causes. Here, they come right out and say what it was. :eek:

    It's always a judgment call. For someone with a history of serious drug abuse, though, cardiac arrest at 74 is certainly a "natural" cause in the sense that it's a natural progression that is expected. Contrast Lotte Van Der Zee who had a heart attack at 19: there should be an autopsy because a heart attack at 19 is not natural.
