Paris Lane Suicide
Short Life Of Gifted But Troubled Young Man Ends To Early By His Own Hand
And Somehow, Ends Up On The Internet
Lane was an aspiring rapper who used the name Paradice. He hugged a friend goodbye, she gets on an elevator, and he shoots himself. It just happened that it was being captured on video.
There were three closed-circuit cameras in the lobby of 1358 Washington Ave. in the Gouverneur Morris Houses that captured Lane's final moments. The shocking footage, recorded March 16, shows Paris Lane, 22, embracing a teenage girl as she gets into an elevator, then shoving a gun in his mouth and firing.
The girl, Krystin Simmons, 16, was stunned when her phone began ringing with friends telling her that footage of the tragic last goodbye was being played on the Web. "I gave him a hug and got into the elevator. When the elevator got to the second floor, I heard the shot," Krystin said.
