Wow. This is really sad. It seems the the major media outlets are respectfully waiting before discussing his death. He definitely will be missed.

I actually think it's pretty unfair that no one is talking about it. If it were the victims from a car crash (like the K10 one last week) or a murder of a young teen, the media would be camped outside the family's house asking questions and taking pictures.

I think they are just showing their respect for a fellow worker and friend.

A couple of news sources posted things this morning but they have since been removed. It is really odd that no one is talking about this. The media doesnt show respect for anyone.

Unless it's one of their own.

Wonder if TV media do not like to talk it because back in the 70's a TV reporter in Florida committed suicide on live tv.

I'm really sorry to hear that.

Here is DC there was a big deal made out of people committing suicide by jumping in front of metro trains.

Not only is killing yourself an extremely selfish thing to do to friends and family, throwing yourself in front of a train in front of hundreds of people (including children) is something those people will never be able to forget. Not to mention delaying or stranding tens of thousands of commuters for hours.

So people have had little mercy on those that do it.

Condolences for his family... It is a loss

I always wanted to be a meteorologist (research) but never went that direction due to the extreme math requirement involved.

He always did exhibit some tendencies of depression now that I look back on it, even years ago.

He will definitely be missed and was one of my favorite OCMs when I lived in KC.
