Norealityhere, I agree with everything you said. I can emphathize with Russel's sister being in disbelief, but don't necessarily think that the suspicisions are warranted in fact. I don't know if it is true or not, since there has been so much gossip and speculation regarding this story, but I had read that Russel had been on anti-depressants after he and Taylor split, and had abrubptly stop taking them. After I had a friend who was nearly suicidal after going off anti-depressants unsupervised, I learned that it can be a very dangerous thing. Coming off a medication like that requires a slow gradual process monitored carefully by a doctor. If Russel was in fact on anti-depressants, and just stopped taking them unsupervised, it would make sense to me that he would become suicidal AND that it would be completely unexpected by his family.
