33-year-old Frederick Jay Bowdy had moved from Texas to California to pursue an acting career. The LAPD was drawn to his Facebook Live after talk of suicide. For a while, people thought the stream was a joke due to Bowdy being an actor. He proceeded to kill himself before police could even get to him.

Last week Bowdy was arrested on suspicion of sexual assault. He posted $100,000 bail. As of right now, no one really knows why he committed suicide, but people are making the assumption that it has something to do with this. This is the second time within the past week that a young person has committed suicide via Live Stream. Very sad.
