    Marcus Jannes (21) committed suicide by hanging and he broadcasted it online

    A young Swedish man advertised his own suicide on an online forum then hanged himself in a live web broadcast, The Local reported Tuesday.

    Marcus Jannes, 21, downed painkillers Monday morning before writing about his upcoming bid to kill himself on a social networking site.

    Several hours later Jannes hanged himself in front of a webcam. Shocking images of his death appeared live on a file sharing site at two second intervals, investigators said.

    Cops probing the tragedy in Jarna, southwest of Stockholm, said they were tipped off about the suicide but not until it was too late. They arrived to find Jannes dead in his apartment.

    The troubled Swede had revealed his intentions in a post at 11:51 a.m. local time, supplying a link and password so would-be voyeurs could watch via a file-sharing site.

    At 1.02pm local time he posted a description of himself: "Have Asperger syndrome / high-functioning autism. Am overly vulnerable (emotionally) ... Have really poor social skills, which make me a somewhat lonely person."

    At 1:13 p.m., Jennes appeared on camera with a Nike "Just Do It" t-shirt -- and wrote: "alright lets do it." Police were eventually alerted at 1:44 p.m.

    "Police performed CPR until the ambulance arrived, but his life could not be saved," police spokeswoman Lotta Thyni told the Expressen newspaper. "We can only regret that people who knew that he planned to kill himself did not act to save his life."

    Police have launched an investigation into the death, which echoes the 2008 "cyber suicide" of U.S. college student Abraham Biggs, who took an overdose of drugs then lay dying in front of a webcam while it beamed live for 12 hours. Further web suicides have been reported in Japan and Britain, The Local said.

    Re: Marcus Jannes (21) committed suicide by hanging and he broadcasted it online

    A Swedish man hanged himself during a live broadcast on the internet on Monday morning, a phenomenon that police described as rare in Sweden.

    Similar incidents have occurred in other countries, but it is still a relatively unknown phenomenon in Sweden.

    "I have never heard of such incidents in Sweden," Anders Ahlqvist of the National Criminal Investigation Department (Rikskriminalen) told newspaper Expressen on Tuesday.

    Marcus Jannes, 21, posted on popular internet forum Flashback on Monday morning that he wanted to kill himself and sent pictures of the event every two seconds. Jannes' family members have asked to make his name public to stop the rumors and inaccuracies that they claimed were spread about him.


    rest of the news article is here: http://www.thelocal.se/29566/20101012/

    I watched the video and almost cried for him.  You know he REALLY was set on it to not just stand up and go "What was I thinking?"  it's so saddening.  :-(

    Re: Marcus Jannes (21) committed suicide by hanging and he broadcasted it online

    Reminds me of the kid who killed himself on stickam and nobody did anything because they all thought he was "joking".  Sigh...

    I had a friend recently post a "fuck it all" message on facebook and then deleted her account.  While I thought she was having a drama queen episode, I sure as shit called another friend of ours and said if our friend didn't answer the phone for her (she didn't for me), that I was calling the cops to do a well being check.  She did answer a text and whatever was getting at her, she got over.  Still, I never take those things lightly, even if I know that person is prone to dramatics.

    Suicide threats should never be taken lightly, you could end up saving someone by talking to them or getting help to them.

    Hello Neener's male twin.  :|
    In a later post, Jannes said that he had been feeling suicidal for about six months, but was too scared to actually attempt anything until he tried to strangle himself with his own hands. In response to questions, he stated that he was using a network cable to strangle himself because he didn't have any rope, but he was worried that the cable would not be strong enough to take his weight. He also told them that he had Asperger syndrome and High-functioning autism, and was emotionally vulnerable and lacked normal social skills. He admitted to feeling lonely, and alluded to experiencing problems at school, but admitted that he had a good upbringing and had a rather good life. At around the same time, he also updated his Facebook status to say life was "just too difficult", and that he was going to kill himself.

    That's how much a suicidal person wants to die though. I know a lot of people don't feel this way, but I admire the balls on this kid. Suicide isn't easy. Waking up everyday is simple, doing something like that takes courage.

    I would say RIP to Mr. Jannes, but I'm sure he's enjoying peace now that he never found in life.

    OMG  :-o I couldnt watch the entire video. I am surprised the video is still up. I hope his family never sees that. But I am sure some asshole will find away to send them pictures and all of that.

    I saw this video a day or so ago on a gore site. It's disturbing because his death looks like something he could have easily prevented even halfway through (although I don't know exactly what he was doing, I'm dumb and can't figure it out).

    It's sad but

    i'm not suicidal, buttfucker. :lol:  and while i may be socially awkward, i have adapted enough by now to get by in life.  most people i meet have no idea i'm an aspie. in fact when i was at the doctors office yesterday, and she saw my diagnosis on her chart, she was surprised.  she said i hide it very well. also, i do have friends, a husband, a family, and there's no way i'd give any of them the satisfaction of having me go away and not being there to bug them.

    Re: Marcus Jannes (21) committed suicide by hanging and he broadcasted it online

    When I posted this yesterday morning I was running late for work so I had to hurry. Anyway, I remembered that Angie Dickinson/Burt Bacharach's daughter, Nikki, committed suicide in 2007 at age 40. She was partially blind, had Asperger's, and had difficulty finding professional success. Yesterday when I came home from work I read that her mother blamed it on a psychologist who told her daughter that that she needed to find her way, that her mother would one day no longer be around to care for her and that tipped the balance. Fear, I guess in what the future held for her. Nikki suffocated herself with a balloon and helium. Very sad.  :-(

    I just mean that they have pics of slip open breasts and gaping head wounds. A purple face and a little struggling isn't gonna shock anyone over there.

    And a fiancée watching porn is a bonus. Lie if you have to.

    OMG. I can't believe I watched it. How so sad. I would imagine the family has watched it. If I were in there shoes I would have asked to see it. I would think they would be extremely upset to know it is public and anyone can watch it. That website is disgusting. I don't ever want to go there again. :2upset:

    Now is there any happier things on here to get my mind off of that video? Shit look at this site. There isn't. I think I need some quiet time from this site for a little bit after that.

    I like to be kissed Australian style... down under

    He posted the video for a reason.  I wonder what that reason was?

    Re: Marcus Jannes (21) committed suicide by hanging and he broadcasted it online

    I'm mostly distrubed by how undisturbing I found that.

    Anyhoo, he was rather determined. I'm glad he's at peace. RIP Marcus.  :|
