MasterChef Finalist Josh Marks Dead Of Apparent Suicide

josh marks suicide chicago

Ugh. This whole story is just so sad.

A few months ago, MasterChef finalist Josh Marks shocked the world when getting into a bizarre altercation with Chicago cops, one where he ended up saying that Gordon Ramsay 'possessed' him and 'turned him into' God.

Obviously something was wrong, especially when you realize that no drugs were involved. His mental health was called into question.

Unfortunately, it seems like he couldn't find the help he needed, either — Josh has apparently committed suicide. A 26-year old male with a gunshot wound to the head was found in an alley in Chicago, and multiple sources confirm the victim is Josh.

According to Josh's mom, it was Josh's official mental health diagnosis that killed him. About 24 hours before his suicide, Jose was diagnosed with schizophrenia, and his mom says that it must have been the thought of dealing with more mental issues that drove him to the brink.

Apparently the mother said she spent the night with him, only leaving the next afternoon to pick her daughter up from school. She then got a phone call from a family member who had been told that Josh was walking in an alley clutching a gun — and when she showed up to help him, she found him dead with a revolver lying nearby.

So sad! We wish he had experienced the treatments available for his diagnosis: things might have been much, much better.

Our hearts go out to all his family and friends.
