We could not get into our apartment for 3 hours! It was extremely scary considering we had no idea what was taking place. Once the Swat team, we knew it was severe. May that man be resting in peace. SO sad.

Why was the swat team called? Probably encouraged the man to end it... did EGVP try talking to him as maybe he just wanted someone to vent to. Or maybe an undiagnosed mental illness. People usually don't want to end their lives, they are usually just trying to get attention. Suicide is for cowards and I feel no pity for them...I feel sorry for the family or the crew that has to clean up after him. The gene-pool is a little cleaner now.
