I was about to ask if they could tell whether his death came from careening down a cliff or if he was assaulted. I'm sure a coroner could notice the difference.

I just feel like there is more to this case than just "he was falling on hard financial times."
You could say almost the exact same thing about Robin Williams. He seemed to have it all but in the end it meant nothing. Depression is a nasty, nasty thing and in this case there is no mystery. The only question in my mind was whether it was a suicide or was he becoming suicidal and accidently drove off that cliff in his mental state. The fact that he said his full legal name and then that he was going to kill himself leads me to believe that that is exactly what he did and did not want anyone to be accused of causing him harm.

Many intelligent people suffer from depression and suicidal thoughts. Let's just say it's hard not to be depressed when you are smart as you tend to overthink everything and get stuck in your own head. I know his father said that he would not commit suicide and people were after him but family members aren't exactly known for accepting the truth about reality. Besides, if he WAS indeed murdered or was in immediate danger why would he not have told the 911 operator that or better yet why would the 'men after him' even allow him to make a call that is recorded rather than quietly allow him to have an 'accident'? Suicide is the only theory that makes sense and it's consistent with everything we've learned.

I will admit there are legitimate conspiracies out there and maybe someone did cause him financial harm but it was like the time I was screwed over by a police officer. It was very hard not to think 'the police' in general were not out to get me especially given how it seemed they followed me everywhere. In reality, it's likely my drive home was similar to a routine patrol route. Again, this is the danger of being intelligent: sometimes your brain can go completely haywire. I've seen it had many times to smart people and sometimes wish I could lose a few IQ points.

I personally would never say such a thing about Robin because I saw him just a few months before he died.
I even said to someone hours afterward that he looked down. His reply: "Really? I saw him when I was waiting in a line at a bank in San Francisco in the early '90s. He was doing his hyper, happy act with us."
Nah. It was unsurprising to me personally.

Nah. It was unsurprising to me personally.
I was more referring to his public persona and the idea that celebrities have nothing to be depressed about because they are generally rich beyond our wildest imaginations.

I am similar in that way in that it's easy to tell I have been chronically depressed for a long time if you knew me personally but passing me on the street I look like a very happy go lucky guy. If I were to somehow commit suicide it would be a complete shock to almost everyone around me and most people would simply not be able to believe it because I look so happy and upbeat all the time and would assume I must have met with foul play.

Obviously I am not in such a situation but hypothetically I would be the kind of person to leave a recorded 911 call to ensure valuable resources weren't wasted and then find the most secluded place imaginable. In other words, I can completely understand why he did it this way and there is no mystery whatsoever.
