Bertrand Hug confirms earlier reports that Julien’s death was a suicide, saying his son left a note.

It is now becoming clear that the death of 35-year-old Bachelorette contestant Julien Hug was a suicide after his father, Bertrand Hug, has come forward to say there was a suicide note. Radar Online spoke to Bertrand who said, “I had no idea my son was suffering from depression. I just never knew that. He left us all a note and I’m in shock.”

Riverside County Sheriff’s Sgt. Joe Borja said in a statement that Hug’s body was found in the remote Pinyon Pines area of California off Highway 74 around 11 am on Nov 3 and that no foul play was suspected, although he did not confirm a cause of death yet. Popeater.com said Riverside County Sheriff Deputy Melissa Nieburger told the press in a statement that the body was found in an area that “you would need to hike into.”

An official cause of death is pending a coroner’s investigation. We’re so sorry for Julien’s parents, Bertrand and Denise. What a devastating loss.
