We have known Mike for more than 12 years. We hadn’t talked in at least 6. He was passionate about what he did, and certainly added to the overall knowledge we now take for granted. We didn’t always agree with him, and he could be hard to deal with sometimes….. But we will miss him.
I know there will be a lot of people saying that he was “suicided” and maybe he was…. But his threats to kill himself in recent years either made him a sitting duck, or was a place that he was prepared to go.
I will NEVER take that route – Don’t believe it.
Many will use his death to Fear monger and create self serving conspiracy theories…. Trust me, Mike wouldn’t have wanted that.
Rest in Peace Brother.
The Message we received:
I have been informed that MCR has committed suicide. I am devastated, and very, very sad…
We’ll report more as information becomes available.
PLEASE DO NOT SPREAD SPECULATION!
MCR was my friend, my client (I was his attorney) and business partner in CollapseNet. We will gather and report THE FACTS about MCR’s death, and nothing else. On my honor, the truth of MCR’s death WILL BE TOLD, and his memory will be honored.
Media inquiries should come right here, to me, via email@example.com.
Rest In Peace Mike. I am so sorry that you are gone. You fought the greatest of fights, you opened thousands of eyes and you have earned your place in history, and in our hearts.
Much more to come…
