Brad Delp, Rest in Peace, Part II.

According to

Brad Delp's suicide note "was paper-clipped to the neck of Delp's shirt when police found his body at his Atkinson home, on the bathroom floor, his head on a pillow. He had sealed himself inside with two charcoal grills; toxicology tests showed he had committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning.

"'Mr. Brad Delp. J'ai une ame solitaire. I am a lonely soul,' the note read."


"His fiancee, Pamela Sullivan, called police March 9 after noticing a dryer vent tube connected to the exhaust pipe of Delp's car. In the garage, police found a note taped to the door leading into the house.

"'To whoever finds this I have hopefully committed suicide. Plan B was to asphyxiate myself in my car.'

"In another note on a door at the top of the stairs, Delp cautioned that there was carbon monoxide inside.

"'I take complete and sole responsibility for my present situation. I have lost my desire to live,' he wrote. The note also included instructions on how to contact his fiancee: 'Unfortunately she is totally unaware of what I have done.'"
