    Basically ruling a suicide by asphyxia -- does that mean he put a plastic bag over his head?

    Word is, he was in financial difficulty as well. He said that "Divorce is expensive (don't I know it)."

    When I first heard the story last night I was in disbelief until his name was mentioned a few more times. He was a great actor and a hell of a funny guy.

    A little too graphic on the details at the presser. Can't believe the family was too happy about that.

    Misdiagnosed, mistreated, improperly dosed guaranteed.
    Doctors too stupid to do a bio-marker blood test and a CYP-450 pharmacogenomic/pharmacogetetic panel w/ SULT gene.

    Mr. Dump (who was diagnosed bi-polar in the mid 90's) always said his eyes showed so much pain in the photos....movies were a different story, he played the parts well.

    One of the things about depression is just because you feel great while taking meds does not mean you're cured and you can stop taking them. You're never cured and the meds have to be maintained for a lifetime.

    He better take his or he'll be living in his mama's basement with his alcoholic brother. It's in our pre-nup.

    You're probably right Leo...

    But I also just read he had been diagnosed with Parkinson's.

    He knew what awaited him, and said "no thanks." I am surprised at how detailed that the Family is being about him and how he died.

    I'm not. Put the info out there so the rumors stop. Just like the financial thing. Almost as soon as it was printed, there was something about how he was NOT having financial problems.

    Putting the info out there about Parkinson's puts a whole new light to the scenario. That's a devastating disease. My father-in-law passed from it and in 1.5 years he went from 210 pounds to less than 100.

    I think the police and media has been too graphic on his actual death. They should have left him some dignity. Depression is a horrible and misunderstood disease, hopefully the news will shed some light on it.
