Can you imagine logging on to Facebook and catching someone’s video of them killing themselves?
That’s apparently what happened to Jay Bowdy’s Facebook friends, as the actor reportedly live streamed his suicide. According to Black America Web, there’s no word on what actually pushed the 33-year-old to take his own life a week ago. However, according to The Los Angeles Times, the aspiring actor reportedly killed himself in North Hollywood, just days after he was arrested on a sexual assault suspicion in Santa Clara, although formal charges had not been filed against him.
Bowdy reportedly encouraged his followers to watch him as he streamed himself inside of a car. An out-of-state family member was watching and immediately called the Los Angeles Police Department, but by the time authorities arrived, it was too late. They found Bowdy in his car near Cumpston Street and Fulcher Avenue, dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Authorities took the live stream down after learning of the incident. The actor left behind a wife and six children.
