Iím finally getting info from the police. At first they said they didnít know he had a vehicle at the motel but the motel said his truck was towed the day he was found. After that, the police confirmed they did tow his truck. Iíve got to call the motel tomorrow to speak to the manager to find out about the stuff from his room. The medical examiner confirmed the police have his pistol. The motel clerk I spoke to said he was found sitting in a chair in his room holding his pistol. The only think thatís been consistent from all sources is that he died of natural causes. The Sgt in charge of the investigation said he has no next of kin that they can verify. We will see where things go from here.

Nothing concrete. I was told that Brianís possessions will probably be sold and the probate lawyer will get to keep the money.

Itís been 30 days since Bryan died so the ME called me to say they can release his body. There were suggestion that Bryan had committed suicide. He was found in a chair in his room with his pistol in his hand. I know he liked handling his gun so I considered the possibility that he was just holding it when he fell asleep and he died in his sleep. When I specifically asked about cause of death, they said it was ruled a suicide. Bryan died from a self inflicted gunshot wound. Now Iím left with a lot of questions that will never be answered.

My wife found a funeral home that will cremate him for around $700. I just have to decide on an appropriate place to scatter his ashes.

We started a GoFundMe. The exact cost of the cremation is $800 but that doesnít include the cost of a death certificate. Weíre also going to submit Bryanís DNA to ď23 and MeĒ to see if we can find any relatives. We hit our goal in less than 24 hours thanks to my wifeís friends. No one that donated ever knew who Bryan was before his death.

That's a nice end.
Is the need enough? or does the want suffice?

Matt,

I hope that when I pass I am lucky enough to have someone who has the same level of compassion you have shown for your friend Bryan.  You've given us all a lesson in how to do the right thing.  My hat is off to you.

Regards,

Bill

Apparently Brian had some troubles, but I'm sure you were one of the bright spots in his life. I'm glad he had a friend like you.

I got a bit more information today. I finally got through to the motel manager where he died. Bryan left nothing in his room. I already knew his next weeks bill was due the day he was found. It appears he packed all his things in his Montero then went back to his room and shot himself. Bryan wasnít working. He had no source of income but he said he had money saved. I suspect he didnít want to go back to being homeless. He had said many times he wanted to live alone. If I though for one moment he no longer had the means to keep a roof over his head, I would have insisted he come live with me. I have an unused bedroom and Iíd have liked the company.

As a direct result of Bryanís suicide, one of the schools my wife works for is having suicide awareness training for the teachers. With an increase in suicide rates among adolescents, the head of schools thought it was something they should get a little training on.

BTW, the crematorium will be picking Bryan up from the MEís office this week. The ME called me today to make sure it was OK to release his body to them. I canít figure out why they would need my OK since Iím not the next of kin. I donít have any specific right to make these decisions than anyone else according to the law. Iím waiting to hear back from the county attorneys office about Bryanís possessions.
