Kevin Neil Whitrick or cyberly known as shyboy_17_1 became popular in 2007 when he committed suicide in front of a live cam during a chat session over at Paltalk. He was joined by 50 other online users in a special 'insult' chatroom where people 'have a go at each other' (trolling).
Kevin, 42, began talking to fellow chatters about his suicide plan two hours before the incident happened. Thinking it was a hoax, they egged him on it.
After switching his webcam on a live broadcast, he went on to carry out his gruesome act. He smashed a hole into the ceiling and tied a rope on the joist and to his neck, then stepped off a chair, hanging himself to suffocation that eventually leads up to his tragic death.
RIP Mr. Whitrick (August 17, 1964 - March 21, 2007)
As cliché as it sounds: Suicide is NOT the solution to your problems...
