Boston Singer Died At Own Hand

The family of Boston lead singer Brad Delp issued a brief statement yesterday saying that his death last Friday was a suicide. According to Lieutenant William Baldwin of the Atkinson, New Hampshire police department, Delp took his life through intentional carbon monoxide poisoning. He left two notes, the contents of which were not released. The statement was issued on behalf of Delp's mother, his ex-wife, children and his fiancee, the last of whom found his body. It says, "He was a man who gave all he had to give to everyone around him, whether family, friends, fans or strangers. He gave as long as he could, as best he could, and he was very tired. We take comfort in knowing that he is now, at last, at peace." Delp was 55 and was scheduled to marry his fiance, Pamela Sullivan, this summer.
