Florida Man Commits Suicide Over Obama Re-Election, Wrote ‘F**k Obama’ In Will

He warned his partner weeks ago: “If Barack gets re-elected, I’m not going to be around.” And he followed through on that declaration.

Henry Hamilton, a 64-year-old owner of Tropical Tan in Key West, Fl., was found dead shortly after Election Day, with the words “Fuck Obama!” written on his will and two empty prescription bottles near his body.

The Miami Herald reports that the man’s partner Michael Cossey told the Key West police that Hamilton was “very upset about the election results.”

The Herald report continues:

A friend of Hamilton had been worried about him and had a standing request to police to make welfare checks. Officer Pablo Rodriguez did just that and when he went to the condo, he woke up Cossey, prompting the discovery of Hamilton’s body in the bedroom.

Dykes reported finding two empty prescription bottles, one for Xanax and one for Seroquel, used to treat anxiety and schizophrenia, respectively.

Cossey told police Hamilton “has been very stressed about his business,” and the last time they had spoken was “when we watched the election results” on Nov. 6.
