Jehovah's Witness Jumps To His Death

Wednesday, December 28 2011, 4:56 PM

A troubled man jumped to his death from a Brooklyn rooftop Wednesday in front of horrified bystanders below, police and witnesses said.
Neighbors identified the man as Dwayne Fagan, 48, a devout Jehovah’s Witness, who plunged 15 stories to his death.
Before his death, the suicidal man warned of hurting himself in a series of disturbing texts messages between him and a family member, a police source said.
Fagan left his seventh-floor apartment in the Linden Houses in East New York and headed toward the roof around 12:45 p.m., sources said.
A ledge above the the building’s entrance broke Fagan’s fall, before he tumbled to the ground, cops and witnesses said.
“I saw him land — it was so loud,” said eyewitness Antoinette George, 25, who lives in the same building on Wortman Ave. near Van Siclen Ave. “I thought someone had thrown an air conditioner off the roof. I screamed and screamed for a minute straight.”
“All his limbs were broken” the startled woman said. “He was lifeless.”

I guess he missed the talk where it proclaims that Jehovah's Witnesses are the happiest people in the world.

There are many more depressed and mentally ill in this religion than the Over Lords let on. I have experienced this first hand as an ex-elder. I hope one day that those suffering will be able to get proper care and help without feeling guilty.

I shudder to think what poor lad was going through and that I could not help him.
I was born raised Jehovah's Witness year 1957 and there are now 4 generations of my Haszard clan in this highly stressful cult,I had suicidal ideation all during my teenage years.
