Died: April 14, 2022.
Age at death: 25.
Cause of death: Homicide.
Location: Troy, Ohio, USA.

Details:
Easton “lived his life passionately and without fear of what others thought”. He was generous to all, and found making friends easy. He lived with a roommate.

Easton’s girlfriend received a cryptic text message from his phone implying that he had been found by an “old enemy” and that he was leaving and would not be returning. She contacted police, worried, because Easton had autism and probably PTSD from having survived child abuse.

When the police went to the apartment, they found blood on the floor and smelled bleach. Suspicious, police interviewed Easton’s roommate, who allegedly confessed to killing him and sending the message from his phone. Easton’s body was found in a field in Iowa.

The roommate is now in jail, charged with aggravated murder, abuse of a corpse, and tampering with evidence.

Brieuc Paquet

Name: Brieuc Paquet.
Died: February 18, 2022.
Age at death: 16.
Cause of death: Homicide-suicide (Gunshot).
Location: Beaufays, Liège, Belgium.

Details:
Brieuc’s father shot him with his hunting rifle, then killed himself. Brieuc’s mother found their bodies.

Editor’s note: Like Katie McCarron’s mother, Brieuc’s father was a doctor. One wonders whether they paid attention in medical school when they were taught, “First, do no harm.” His patients seem to be fine with it, though; reportedly, they still remember him as a wonderful doctor.
