    "Why in the world would he do this. It sounds like a very selfish, vindictive act."

    Well suicide is said to be the ultimate in selfish acts ... I know what the suicide of my Brother did to my Parents. People who commit suicide are usually mentally ill and one cannot really know what their thought processes were unless they write them down which is rarer than the TV would suggest.

    Why in the world would he do this. It sounds like a very selfish, vindictive act. Hope his reward fits. Prayers to the brother, mother, and any other family and friends.

    So sad to take the life of your own child. It looks like in the twisted (obviously) mind of the father, it was a last *punishment* to the mother. The poor brother that found her, and the mom that lost a precious daughter. I cannot fathom the horror she and brother are going through.
