Storage War Star Who Committed Suicide Was Just Following Russell Armstrong's Lead!?

There is no silver lining to this sad, sad story.

Before Storage Wars star Mark Balelo tragically took his own life, those closest to him say he compared himself to another ill-fated reality man, Russell Armstrong of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Mark was worried about his recent drug arrest and couldn't shake the parallels between what his situation and what Russell suffered through after reports surfaced of his possible domestic abuse against Taylor Armstrong.

The Storage Wars guy even went so far as to say he "understood" why Russell chose to end his own life in 2011.

And then, on Sunday, he poisoned himself in his own car with carbon monoxide.

Ugh. No situation is completely hopeless; suicide is never the answer.

It's all so very sad.

Our thoughts extend to those closest to Mark in this time of hardship.
