Don't you think if you knew the family or individual that you would have heard it by word of mouth by now? Second, it's very common for media outlets to not release names of suicides. Let it go.

For starters if I know the family or the individual i would like to send my condolences. Second, my tax dollar paid to scoop up his body so I have every right to know who it is.

It's just liberals killing liberals! If they continue we will run out of stupid liberals. Apparently white doctors killing unborn black babies doesn't matter. It only matters if it's a white cop does it. You go Planned Parenthood.
