That's one way to avoid a life time in jail. He took the easy way out, can't say that I blame him.

Once again alcohol and lack of responsibility coupled with sheer stupidity cause such tradjedy and sorrow.

Wonder if it was the prospect of lifetime in jail or the guilt (or a combination) that led him to suicide.

Just glad he didn't take anybody else along with him. Lot of family members around when he did it.

I know I did some pretty stupid stuff when I was younger. If I didn't have a guardian angel looking out for me a few times, life may have worked out very differently.
