    He was new to the building and he was all lively and happy the past two days. He even greeted and shook my hand when he introduced himself to me and everybody else. He was wearing a new years eve hat and everything and was just partying it up. Then all of a sudden, somebody discovered him at 3am in one of the bathroom stalls and he had hung himself. Police were called. Coroner came and took his body. First time I've ever seen a fresh dead body, or somebody kill themselves within such proximity to me, or even seen a coroner in person.

    Just goes to show you, treasure life and what you have.

    Wow, I wonder what flipped the switch for him?

    Didn't know the guy, buy may he RIP (suicide is a rather touchy subject for most of us here).

    We'll never know. Yeah, peace be with him.

    It still creeps me out how he shook my hand and then a day later he's dead. He didn't leave any notes or anything.

    You can never know what goes on in a persons mind, what you see isn't always how it is. A friend of mine years ago committed suicide, she showed absolutely no signs that she was unhappy, infact she seemed happier than ever then one morning after taking her son to school she went missing.

    A day later she was found hanging from a tree. Its thought she was suffering from serious depression, which she hid very well. Family and friends including myself felt much guilt for not picking up on any small signs. If you believe someone may be even just a little unhappy make an effort to get them to talk, it could save their life.

    RIP Marie

    Ending your life is never the Solution , nothing will change , You can only make Change if you are Here , Hang on in whatever condition you are and NEVER QUIT.

    Sorry for your loss. It can be hard even for someone close to a person to recognize depression, and in OP's case as someone who barely new the guy he had no chance. Usually these people have been struggling with this for a long time, and the change in their behavior may be gradual. While a feeling of sadness is certainly central to depression, what really makes life so difficult for these people (and ultimately drives them to suicide) are feelings of worthlessness and hopelessness. When life just isn't worth living, it feels less like an active decision to take your life and more like a passive one to stop forcing yourself to live.

    Best wishes and positive energy to everyone in this thread.

    people often never express their feelings with others because it's super hard to open up, That smile of his was fake too sad he didn't trust anybody to help him.... Or he probably never had anybody to share his grief with.
