Man dead in apparent gas suicide on Leucadia's Florita Street

Fox 5 News.

Neighbors say the man's name was Brent and he had three young children. He was found dead by a friend, with the windows closed and gas hissing from the kitchen. The home appears to be 222 Florita.


  1. The sense of hopelessness, despair, alienation and loneliness one has to endure in order to make this an option is absolutely unfathomable. I have no idea who this person is, but his pain is now gone. For those left behind, the pain is only beginning. The hardest part is in accepting that there is no blame here.

  2. Call suicide prevention and talk to someone if considering doing yourself in.

  3. Thank diety the house didn't blow up and level a block.

  4. Er, do we really need an entry on the blog on this. Very sad...

    1. No man is an island entire of itself; every man
      is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
      if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
      is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
      well as any manner of thy friends or of thine
      own were; any man's death diminishes me,
      because I am involved in mankind.
      And therefore never send to know for whom
      the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
