The man involved in this sad story was my younger brother. The woman was his live in companion of 30 plus years. My brother was a multi- talented person, most notably a good musician. He had been having serious health problems starting some years ago. In addition, there were some very sad circumstances over the last 3 years which served to make his life even sadder. His step-son died unexpectantly at age 21 and his friend and drummer in the band was killed in a car accident very soon after. I am not and will never condone what apparently happened in that small town hospital room. My brother loved life and this is something I will never truly understand, let alone get over. We spoke on the phone about once a month and I knew he was having a rough time. As I posted on Facebook, I loved my brother from a distance. That was the nature of our relationship. I am writing this comment in the hope it will cause people to be slower to judge and to try to understand how a person can get so depressed. Many people tried to help him but as the saying goes, you have to be part of your own cure. This was the underlying situation-- he gave up! I hope God will forgive this, I pray for that as well as the strength to go on and remember the good times with my little brother.

May your brother finally find peace and comfort in heaven. Very touching story. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family.

Unfortunately we will never know the truth of what happened in that room!!! I knew Sue from when we were kids, and I find it hard to believe that she would have shot anybody, let alone herself.

I do also know for a fact that she was scared for her life, as she had been threatened with being killed, if she left him.... SO, what REALLY happeneed?!?

In response to Army, I find it incredulous that Sue was afraid for her life. She left a note, as did my brother. In that writing she said she could not go on living without him and wanted to share the same fate. She loved my brother as he loved her. When Stiano passed, they were both shell- shocked and their mental states could not be good. I don't know you but I must say you could not have known Mario and Sue in this relationship, if you think she was afraid of him! She could have walked away from him anytime as he did not have the strength to stop her! I would appreciate your keeping your ill informed opinions to yourself! To write drivel such as you have is wrong, as well as grossly unfair!
