Nick Santino committed suicide after making the heartbreaking decision to euthanize his pit-bull Rocco. But now the condo board that he said pressured him to do it is dodging any blame.
Nick Santino shocked friends and family after he committed suicide on Jan. 24. It was revealed that he felt he couldn’t live after euthanizing his pit-bull Rocco. According to Nick, the management of his Upper West Side condo building banned pit-bulls and started to harass him about his dog, which drove him to put his pet down and take his own life on the same day. Now the condo board in question is scrambling to distance his suicide from their actions!
Marilyn Fireman, who is on the board, says the condo’s policies cannot be thought to have been a direct influence on 47-year-old Nick’s suicide, the New York Post reports.
“You just assumed that [his suicide] was a result of a board’s decision,” she says.
Do YOU think the condo board should be held responsible for Nick’s death, HollywoodLifers?
