Did he die of suffocation (lack of access to oxygen)?
Is there anyone else around him?
Was he dead when he washed up on the beach?

Was he alone on the vehicle on which he killed himself? Was it a boat? Was it a raft? Do you mind me asking multiple questions in one post?

Is the man T-Pain?

Was he on a boat?
Are there any visible marks of trauma on his body?
Does his suicide involve money?

Crazy thought.

The man and his companion were in a car/truck/van half dangling over a cliff. In order to keep the vehicle from toppling over and killing them both, the man jumped and suicided to re-stabilize the vehicle.

Fuck.

Would the man have died along with whoever he was trying to save if he had not committed suicide?
