Man commits suicide on chatroom webcam

A 42-year-old man committed suicide while talking to his friend in an online chatroom. Shropshire, England resident Kevin Whitrick's body was found after other chatroom users told police that he was harming himself in full view of his webcam.

Police aren't saying why Whitrick killed himself, but according to the Shropshire Star Newspaper, on-going medical troubles could have played a factor. Whitrick was in a serious car accident last year and apparently never recovered fully.

The police aren't being specific about how Whitrick died, but they are trying to interview anyone that might have witnessed the suicide online.
