A man who committed suicide after his girlfriend’s death allegedly wanted to commit murder because he was unhappy with his life, according to a police affidavit obtained by The Washington Post.
The suspect, who is not being identified by The Post because he has not been charged with a crime, was a homeless man who reportedly became depressed and killed himself in August.
The Post obtained the affidavit from police in St. Louis County, Missouri, where the suspect is being sought.
The affidavit states that the suspect, 29-year-old Joshua E. Jones, was living in a hotel room at the Holiday Inn in the Missouri city of St. Charles, Missouri.
Jones was not a member of the St. Cloud area police department, which was working the case at the time of his death, but was a regular at the hotel and had been known to frequent the Holiday inn.
“It was his intention to kill himself,” St. Clair County Sheriff James Boyd said.
According to the affidavit, Jones’ girlfriend, who was a friend of his, had been dating Jones for about two months. “
I believe he was very frustrated, very angry, very unhappy, and that’s why he killed himself.”
According to the affidavit, Jones’ girlfriend, who was a friend of his, had been dating Jones for about two months.
Jones and his girlfriend had been arguing, the affidavit states.
Jones then went to the Holiday Hotel to buy drugs for his drug habit, but when he went to his room he noticed a large hole in his door, the document states.
The man’s girlfriend then woke up and called police, Boyd said, adding that the man was “not responding well.”
Boyd said the police officer who responded to the call did not call for backup and called for backup from the police department.
Boyd said police searched Jones’ room, which contained three “small, white boxes” and a “large, black box” containing a “very large quantity of pills.”
Police also found two guns, the documents state.
The incident occurred around 10 p.m. on August 26.
Boyd told the Post that the motive for Jones’ suicide remains unclear, but said police were looking into the possibility that Jones had killed himself after “being beaten up by police.”
The suspect reportedly had been on mental health treatment at the Stetson University Hospital, but had been discharged from that hospital after failing to comply with the city’s mental health guidelines.
The Stetsons psychiatric staff did not find any signs of mental illness in Jones.
The police department is currently conducting an internal review of the incident, Boyd told The Post.
“We don’t have any suspects yet, but we will be looking at it as we go forward,” Boyd said of the suicide investigation.
Jones’ alleged motive is not known, but police believe that he may have been “trying to get rid of the depression he was experiencing.”
According the police affidavit, the man’s “current relationship” with his girlfriend was not as healthy as the man had hoped, and she did not want to see him get back together with Jones.
Boyd added that he did not know if the relationship was platonic or platonic and romantic.
Boyd is not certain whether Jones’ mother, who lived in Missouri, knew about the relationship.
Boyd also told the newspaper that Jones’ sister did not return a phone call to her son’s room after his death.
