My next door neighbour ,I rang the police as id not seen him for a while they came out withen the hour , borrowed my ladders so they could look through the window 10 mins later fire engine and paramedics were here and his door had been broken and they found him
He was a lovley fella no family or friends as I could gather I had ppl knocking on my door , gas electric , water and mortgage company wanting him as he wouldnt answer door I did try to tell him that he suffered from depression but obviously they didnt listen and banged on his door and posted threatening letters which obviously lead to his death
Just wish I could have done more :0(
Rest in peace steve xxx

Poor man. Must have been in some financial difficulties if they were all knocking on his door - can't have helped with the depression.
Thank goodness you rang the police, char, or he could still be there.
RiP, Steve.

Char - You couldn't have done anymore, so don't beat yourself up love. The poor man obviously was in a very dark place - of course the ones who wanted his money didn't give a monkeys - same old, eh? What a horrid world we live in!! Just hope he has now found peace.

When I did speak to him he said he had no money and that he missed his mum
I was hoping to speak to him soon to invite him for his dinner as I didnt want him being alone at christmas but I cant do that now :0(
Least hes at peace now and reunited with his mum and the bullies can't get to him

Poor man, when they make the decision to do this there is no changing it Char, dont beat yourself up about it. My husband took the same way out year, no warning, no letter, nothing. I hope he is at peace now

Not sure why this needs posting all over the Internet tbh. It's no one elses business and rather disrespectful

Me@ shut up until you have something constructive to say.You imbercile!

Rip to this poor chap
But I think it is totally unacceptable that someone has posted all that information though it is no ones business and people do not need to know! One nosey neighbourgh there, this man probably also worried about what people thought of him and this person has just disrespected his misfortune!

People shouldn't be posting details about this poor fellas life!! If I was his family and saw this I'd be furious! Just plain disrespectful.

Sam, you're a prat, the poor bugger had no family or friends, if somebody had bothered to stick their nose into his business then maybe he would have been offered help. It's pillocks like you that make me fancy having a swing myself!
