    Poor kid, it's sad that he only had the internet to turn to. All he probably needed was someone to smile at him.

    It makes me mad to think of all those lurkers who could have rung the police early enough to make a difference, but didn't because they wanted to witness someone taking their own life.

    Or did they think he didn't have the bottle to do it.

    I do not like that this is being inaccurately tied to "a file sharing site". It's sad that the guy had no other group of peers, but file-sharing does not deserve to take a black eye on this, either.

    Makes me mad too but I think unless someone knew exactly who this guy was and where he lived, they probably couldn't get to him quick enough, I am thinking. It is sad, very sad, for someone to have to reach a point where the only way to get any relief for the immense pain they are going through, is suicide.

    Well, someone must have known where he lived, because it states...

    "Police performed CPR until the ambulance arrived, but his life could not be saved. We can only regret that people who knew that he planned to kill himself did not act to save his life."

    ...so, either his immediate neighbours realised something was wrong, or someone on-line knew his whereabouts, otherwise the police would have stated that they arrived to find a dead body. No one in their right mind performs CPR on a cold corpse.

    wonder how many viewers where there? or there was ever a hint that family members could pick up on. Sad but makes you wonder did he truly want to die?
    Seems he just wanted help and didn't know where or who to turn too

    @TheFoX - When he posted the IP to his FTP,only then could people call 112 (911), think it took about 15min from the first call for the police to arrive,

    @Brilman - He had posted stuff on his Facebook days/weeks behore and hinted that....

    @ninja666...

    15 minutes for the Police to arrive? They'd be better off calling a Pizza Palour, or a Kebeb shop. I get my kebabs delivered in half the time. Or maybe the cops stopped off for doughnuts first.
