Man kills himself over Obama victory writes “F— Obama” on will

This story is awful. A man in Florida who told loved ones that “if Barack gets re-elected, I’m not going to be around”died last week and was found with with the words “F— Obama!” written on his will and two empty prescription bottles by his side.

Henry Hamilton, 64, owner of Tropical Tan off Duval Street, was “very upset about the election results,” his partner Michael Cossey told Police Officer Anna Dykes.

Police spokeswoman Alyson Crean said a cause of death is awaiting autopsy results from the Monroe County Medical Examiner’s Office but said, “There’s absolutely no evidence of foul play.”

According to Dykes’ report, Cossey returned to the South Roosevelt Boulevard condo he shared with Hamilton after a late night of playing cards with friends and fell asleep on the couch around 6 a.m.

A friend of Hamilton had been worried about him and had a standing request to police to make welfare checks. Officer Pablo Rodriguez did just that and when he went to the condo, he woke up Cossey, prompting the discovery of Hamilton’s body in the bedroom.

Dykes reported finding two empty prescription bottles, one for Xanax and one for Seroquel, used to treat anxiety and schizophrenia, respectively.

Cossey told police Hamilton “has been very stressed about his business,” and the last time they had spoken was “when we watched the election results” on Nov. 6.

  1. Terrible. As much as I blame Obama for his responsibilities and failures as a president, I hope people don’t decide to blame him for a suicide like this. It was at the hand of his own and no one else’s.

    My prayers go out to his family.

  2. This is one of those times when you reaaaaalllly need to be right before you make your final argument. ‘Cause getting the last word isn’t gonna happen here.
