Indeed, they think it was a suicide.

Yeah apparently he hung himself. Tragic really, did he suffer from depression?

Apparently =/

Some of the articles about it have said he did.

RIP Gary Speed

What the F*ck?!?!

Just when things were starting to kick off for the National Team too. How will this affect them? I literally did not see this coming at all.

My heartfelt condolences to his family.

Don't like how there's been so much suicide in football recently. It's worrying.
