Dick Trickle was a legend in the NASCAR community, and he was recently found dead a cemetery from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. While he DID leave a note, the contents have not made public — so there's no way of knowing why he did what he did.
His brother, though, believes Dick took his own life because he couldn't

This is just awful news for the world, especially for the NASCAR community who knew him well.
Legendary driver Dick Trickle, who even used to smoke cigarettes while racing because he was so good, has passed away due to an apparent suicide. He DID leave a note at the scene of his death.
Sources say that Dick had been sick for a while and depressed. Authorities in North Carolina say he shot himself at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Lincoln County — and they even received a call before his death saying they would find his dead body there. He was found next to his pickup.
We have word that his body has been removed from the scene and taken to a nearby hospital.
Such a sad day for racing, and our hearts go out to his friends and family.

All the time right?? LOLz!
This is nuts! A hiker in Colorado found the remains for Ronald Vasey, who mysteriously disappeared in 1987 — in a partially buried station wagon!

What is this world coming to???
15-year-old Audrie Pott was raped by three teenage boys last September after becoming intoxicated and unfortunately unconscious at a friend's party.
And while the rape is bad enough, the boys who attacked Pott took pics of the sexual abuse and then put 'em on the internet for all of the San Francisco Saratoga High School to see.
After the horrid event went down, the teenager took to her Facebook to write:
"The whole school knows…. My life is ruined."
And eight days after the rape happened, Audrie took her life by hanging herself.

We’re so glad nothing horrible happened during this break up because it sounds like a terrible disaster was right around the corner for Jessica Simpson’s parents.
Tina Simpson’s life fell apart after she discovered Joe Simpson’s homosexual affair, but what we didn’t know until now was just how hard it was on her.
In fact, we're hearing that after discovering Joe’s relationship with Bryce Chandler Hill, Tina apparently wrote a suicide note where she also threatened to take Joe’s life!
A source revealed the deets that could have led to an absolute tragedy, sharing:
