    Posted: 10 January 2006 at 11:51pm

The details I have are grim but enough to understand. I went to talk to my teacher I had last semester to ask if I could TA for him. After discussing the issue and I turn to leave he says "Did you hear what happeened to Eric" in a low voice. I turn and simply say "No" thinking he broke his arm, got in a accident or something along the lines. Bad but not what I was about to hear. My teacher said plainly in a low voice " He commited suicide yesterday". I thought " Holy smokes". Paused for about 5 seconds letting the views sink in even deeper. Then I asked, "How....how did he do it?"


Eric Riggs, i've known the kid since 4th grade. We played airsoft, went the river but was mostly the friend with my neighbor. I knew him well enough to "know him"but truly didn't connect. This kid always had a smile, was involved in extra curricular activities, had many friends. His mom recently lost her job as a teacher due to cost cuts. If this had a factor I'm not quite sure. Honestly I do not know why he did it. He asked his friends for a gun, the blew it off as a joke and thought he was just messing around which he occasionaly had done.


Yesterday from 3pm-4pm, Eric Riggs jacked up his car. Slid under it, and kicked out the jack.

What and odd way to off yourself. How'd they figure ouit was a suicide? Seems like something you'd do to make it look like an accident.

Why should I like him get away with a filter dodge just because his acquaintance killed himself? He knew exactly what he was posting.

Thanks TT, I did know what I was doing just like...nm. And please don't say sorry to me or Eric. Say it to his family. That's who I feel sorry for.

Thats seems very odd to pick that way to go.

Why didnt he just drive his car head in to a wall. It just dont make sense.

I bet the school will do something. Schools fear the burst of suicides that one can cause.

Hope his family best wishes.

first girl i kissed hung herself with an electric cord three years later. I blame me. I'd kill myself if i kissed me.

Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos.

carbon monoxide is where it's at. OD on heroine might not be too bad either.

ODing has a risk of failure though, especially if someone finds you....Maybe a long long fall?

I think I'd just get ripped off PCP and get into a fight with cops/wild boars. I could take out so many before my body just completely failed.
