I was deeply shocked and saddened to hear this news. I stil find it hard to believe. He was very handsome, smart and talented. Why would he end it all? And to think I was in California last week before this happened. I wish this could have been prevented or the gun jammed up.

Very saddened to hear of his untimely death. Depression is a horrible condition to deal with, if only he could have received some help.

Good actor gone too soon! Too bad people didn't catch on he had a problem that made it impossible to go on.

DoubtsAug 22, 2013

He had youth...money...fame...success...I think this should be looked deep deep into.
Something isn't right.
