So tragic. The Seattle hip hop artist, 22, allegedly took his own life by shooting himself in the head after a series of tweets in which he revealed his extreme depression and heartbreak.
Frederick Eugene Buhl, aka Freddy E, was found dead on Jan. 5 after apparently committing suicide. The Seattle rapper, 22, was best known for his YouTube webisode program, titled Jerk TV, which mostly featured comedy segments and some original rap songs.
Freddy E allegedly killed himself after a series of tweets in which he said he suffered an extreme “heartbreak” — and then threatened to shoot himself in the head.
“If there’s a God then He’s calling me back home. This barrel never felt so good next to my dome. It’s cold & I’d rather die than live alone,” he tweeted on Jan. 5.
“It’s… all… bad… y’all. *puts finger around trigger*” he tweeted a little later, and then added. “I love you mom. I love you Dad. I love you Katherine. God… please forgive me. I’m sorry,” he wrote in a series of tweets.
Freddy E’s Family Speaks Out On The Rapper’s Death
Freddy’s dad, Frederick Douglass Buhl, revealed his family’s despair on his personal Facebook page.
“Our family is saddened beyond words; our loss is great; this tragedy is enormous and unforseen,” he wrote on his Facebook page on Jan. 5.
“Not only our family, but the world has lost a talented, sensitive, brilliant young man who lit up our existence with his. We love him a great deal, and he will be sorely missed. We pray that God will now watch over him, and we ask all of you to include Frederick and our entire family in your thoughts and prayers.”
So sad. Our thoughts are with Freddy’s family during his difficult time.
