Is it truly confirmed as suicide? Any foul play involved?

Why isn't this in the paper?

Someone from Cartersville Patch talked to the family. No reason stated for death. Typically, that's how you handle a suicide if you print something, although no confirmation of his manner of death. Most newspapers do not do stories on a suicide so they haven either decided not to touch this or are waiting to see for sure how he died before doing a story. The paper I work for may do something on the memorial service since he was well-known...they are trying to decide how to handle this.

My apologies, I finally saw his Obituary. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. I thought this was one of those Topix Bs stories.

Benjamin "Benji" Roger Wilhoite was in the movie Six-Pack with Kenny Rogers. I graduated from Cass with him and he used to visit the local Wal-Mart a lot.

Very sad. EXTREMELY SAD for the children he left behind. They are AWESOME KIDS & I worry how something like this will effect their lives. It wasn't in the obituary originally because he lived in NY.

Benji was my first crush. My daddy gave him his first acting job. It was in "Jack and The Beanstalk" as Jack at the Grandtheatre in 77 or 78. I was 3-4 and he was 8-9. I have never forgotten looking at him and getting butterflies. I still love watching "Six Pack" to hear him singing. My heart broke the night word got brother texted me with the news. I pray for his family and especially his kids!
