Brilliant!

This was so well done. The host is completely impartial, speaking to both sides and exploring every option. Such a sad case, I feel for all involved.

Well researched & presented

Although I am not really convinced, despite the many red flags, coming from a mental health profession background, he was a very disturbed child for all of the reasons mentioned in the podcast... I feel it is more likely than not that he did complete suicide.
