Why would this guy shoot himself? My guess: His investigation has lead him to the truth that his government was involved in the plane crash which killed their President. The government is covering it up and wants to know WHO was leaking, and this man didn't want to help the government. This man was under threat of death if he didn't reveal who was leaking the stories, and so to protect those patriots, he shot himself (to avoid certain torture and an agonizing death).edit on 1/11/2012 by Cryptonomicon because: (no reason given)
