Brooklyn self-help duo commit joint suicide
A Brooklyn couple who hosted a self-help radio show committed suicide together after what appeared to be a long struggle with mental illness, police said on Wednesday.
Lynne Rosen and John Littig each left a note before killing themselves by putting plastic bags over their heads and inhaling helium, the Daily News reports. Neighbors of the couple said it might have been as much as a week before the smell led to their bodies being discovered in their Park Slope apartment on Monday.
The couple co-hosted a radio show on WBAI-FM called “The Pursuit of Happiness” once a month.
