Has anyone any information on reports astronaut Charles Brady has committed suicide?

Please post any info here as I'm searching and searching but keep getting dead ends on futher reports.

All I really know about him is a little of his history in space shuttle missions in the 90's...

Did he have any history of bizarre behaviour?

No - nothing about suicide. Just that he has passed away.

Astronaut Brady's Death Stuns Area

BY JOHN CHAPPELL: STAFF WRITER

Astronaut Charles E. Brady, formerly of Robbins, is dead at 54.

His home town is in mourning over the loss of one of its most illustrious sons: an Eagle Scout, an athlete, a doctor, a Blue Angel, and a space traveler. A huge mural depicting Brady and the Space Shuttle Columbia overlooks the railroad across from the Old Elise Depot and the town hall.

Now the town is puzzled and saddened by reports of the circumstances of his death.

According to Chuck McCarty, a dispatcher with the Sheriff's Office in San Juan County, Wash., Brady died of apparently self-inflicted wounds.

Sheriff's deputies had responded to a call from a home on Orcas Island Sunday afternoon, July 23.

When they arrived at the scene, they spoke to a woman, Susan Oseth, and a 3- or 4-year-old girl.

Jon Zerby, undersheriff of San Juan County, said Brady and Oseth lived together on Orcas Island. Zerby said Brady was divorced.

Found After Search

A deputy reported that "Oseth told him Brady had left on foot and gone to a wooded part of the island. The Island is big, 58 square miles, according to Deputy Ray Clever, senior officer on the scene.

"The call had come in for a verbal dispute, but [there were indications of] something more unusual," Clever said. "That was a huge area to cover."

Seeking to render Brady aid, the deputies called for backup and began a search.

After a time, the officers discovered Brady's body in a wooded area. A paramedic pronounced him dead at the scene, and the body was taken to nearby Snohomish County for an autopsy.

Neither the woman nor the child were physically harmed in the incident, according to the deputies.

Now what was so unusual? What were the indications?

According to a local news site from the Orcas Island area , it would seem he did commit suicide.

A verbal domestic dispute turned tragic on Orcas Island

Deputies responded to a call of a verbal domestic dispute on Orcas Island Sunday afternoon. When they arrived they saw blood on the ground, the porch and in the kitchen. As the deputies were speaking to a woman and a 4-year-old child, they saw the woman's partner, Charles E. Brady, Jr. near the garage. He was armed with a knife and ran off into the brush. The officers requested additional backup to join in the search.

The 54-year-old man was found in the thick brush dead from self-inflicted knife wounds. A paramedic pronounced him dead at the scene. The woman and child were not physically harmed in the incident.

An autopsy will be performed by Snohomish County. Information about suicide prevention is available online at www.save.org/

I guess i says a lot about me that when i saw that headline on Drudge, my first thought governemnt "cover up". Now it seems that the poor guy suffered from a mental disease.

I kind of feel bad for jumping straight to "he was silenced"

there are still way more avenues to be researched in this case.

this was a very smart man... most likely a deadly self-inflicted knife wound would lead towards the conclusion this action was not premeditated as less than 10% of all suicides are self knifings.

what happened to him that he went soo crazy over a verbal dispute?

he was a lover of earth - he once expressed DEEP concern over the future of mother earth, after seeing the mass destruction of the earth from space.

when he went public years ago about his seeing how trashed the earth is from clear-cutting and pollution and riverway destruction he had been practically silenced.

a silent voice nobody would listen to anymore. he should have been more in the public eye than he was perhaps.

wow. i am suprised none of the posters on ATS think anything more of Brady's suicide. I for one believe there is a lot of this not getting to us, especially in regards to his experience with the space program.

If you simply write it off to "mental problems" as other posters have suggested, you completely have missed the point. What was bothering him? Was it his family? Was it past work efforts gone by the wayside?

Could Brady have known about potentially important information? Did Brady EVER report UFO sightings while with or outside of the space program?

Yeah I'm nosey, but I want to know why this brilliant man would snap like this. HELP!!

Could have been a suicide like David Kelly's alleged suicide, but its hard to say.

Whistleblowers that can do damage to public policy are likely silenced long before they cause any trouble. This may have been the case here, but there just isn't enough information.

Guys/Girls - Please give the man some Dignity in death.
Please don't make a farce of his death to promote unfounded speculative ideas that in the end overshadow and tarnish his lifes achievemnts.

A lot of other brilliant men killed themselves. We know NOTHING about his personal life and what was going on there. Was he fighting depression? Had he and his significant other been fighting a long time? Did he have some kind of mental illness that wasn't diagnosed? There are SO MANY things we don't and probably never will know about this man, which appears to be how he wanted it. Respect that and give him dignity. Believe it or not, not everything is a conspiracy.

Actually I would love to believe life had no conspiracies.

But that is not the case and I, for one, am a HUGE fan of the space missions no matter what have the utmost respect and dignity for the men and women who have risked their lives in the name of the advancment of mankind.

Chuck Brady is no different, I have always been vastly interested in knowing more about him and the many others with experience in the shuttle missions throughout history.

Mr. Brady was an explorer. Every astronaut has been an explorer and was/is very hard working. In the same vain I want answers to the questions regarding his professional career and how that may have affected his life profoundly. To the point where his personal life became a disaster and his wonderful life became so brutally interrupted. I want the facts as they are known because I do believe this is important for people to know.

Maybe it's not my place to ask for that information but I have a rude side so please excuse me ahead of time.

I find it tough to swallow from my fellow ATS members and friends they don't want to find out more about this man and find out EXACTLY what happened on his missions that could actually have an impact on recent events surrounding the Atlantis mission. Maybe not but who are you to think otherwise?

From the conversations I have had recently, I have come to a higher awareness that in the 90's there were in fact many "santas" spotted by shuttle engineers and why should Brady's legacy be one of complete silence? Killing one's self is no noble feat in my eyes, it's an act of dire straights and something that MUST be explored. If Mr. Brady wanted to live his life so damn quietly, why would he become an astronaut where he would find himself on missions that could be monitored and tracked and disected not by one person or a group but by the entire discriminating earth?

In the light of the Atlantis mission's recent newsmaking, exploration is the ONLY answer and I don't think for a moment any we joined this site to merely pay respect to a suicide. Sorry if you disagree.

So, it's been a while now since the passing of this great astronaut, I am curious if anyone has a link to any further details or interviews related to this story.

Please post!

John Lear, you are my favorite poster on this site and I would love any insight into possible insight into this awful suicide... SAVE this THREAD!

the lack of response gives me a strange thought that i'm caught up in an episode of Scooby Doo and one day I'm going to bump heads with some freakish "goul" who will appear and demand that I stop meddling with Charles Brady's suicide story.

seriously - this story is really screwed up and needs to be addressed and looked into. a man with his credentials is dead and I want to know what he knew.

now with the OTHER crazy astronaught, this suicide gets none, zero, zilch respect.

ATS, you've let me down on this thread.

How can that freaky astronaught get 100's of views for following another astronaught and spraying her with mace be such a huge deal when another proven astronaught KILLS himself?

The tables in this room need to be feng shiu'd a little better because I'm getting some weird vibrations from it all really.


Hope to hear from some others out there.... ANY MORE NEWS ON THE SUICIDE OF BRADY?

Well, fortunately there was follow up to this story thanks to NPR (though it should have been me to make the request) who under the Freedom of Information Act were granted more information into a NASA investigation regarding crazy people, errrr, I mean Charles Brady and Novak.

I hope more gets released, but if anyone finds out more - please post!
