It's a fair point - but then, aspiring young people kill themselves all the time, and it's probably always mysterious from outside. Who knows?
We do know he was interested in aliens, to the point of expressing fear to his parents that he might be abducted. It's possible he was very
disturbed, and something happened to him that he interpreted in a way consistent with the way his mind had begun working. It's also possible he was
'sowing the seeds' in advance, and trying to add meaning or confusion to his suicide. Perhaps there was life insurance that would be nullified. We
I admit - it's all speculation, and it all seems unlikely from the outside.
But it's very, very important to get the unlikeliness the right way round. The correct question isn't "how likely is it that this man
these specifics?" Of course, it's very unlikely, if you're looking at one person at random. The correct question is "how likely is it that
someone, somewhere may fit these specifics?" It may still be unlikely, but if there is even one such person - in the whole world, in the last fifty
years - we would be very
likely to end up discussing them here, wouldn't we?
