The morning after.
Today, the Baltimore Sun is reporting that Mike Flanagan took his own life last night. He was found dead by a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
Please, readers. If you or someone you know is dealing with depression or just needs someone to talk to; do not wait - act.
The idea that Mike Flanagan was this despondent surely comes as a shock to everyone who watched him but it just proves the point that we never truly know what demons one man might be wrestling with. Gerry Sandusky (on WBAL) cited a source that speculated Flanagan was "despondent" over how the "community perceived his role in the organization". Frankly, unless there is a note that clearly spells out Mr. Flanagan's intentions it is completely irresponsible, bordering on insulting, to speculate on his mental state or the reasons behind his actions.
