‘Gonzo’ Godfather Hunter S. Thompson Kills Himself

Hunter S. Thompson, a renegade journalist whose “gonzo” style threw out any pretense at objectivity and established the hard-living writer as a counter-culture icon, fatally shot himself at his Colorado home on Sunday night, police said. He was 67.

Another senseless death to suicide. Thinking about it yourself? Please check out the suicide project and post your contribution.
