Sandy Hook victim's father apparently took his own life

Sandy Hook victim's father apparently took his own life

Although police say they believe he took his own life, they have not disclosed the specific cause of death.

Tragedies like the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High and Sandy Hook Elementary school massacres eventually fade from view, blunted by other mass shootings and the passage of time.

The Avielle Foundation says "Jeremy's mission will be carried on by the many who love him, including many who share the heartache and trauma that he has suffered since December 14, 2012".

Lieutenant Aaron Bahamonde, a spokesman for the Newtown Police Department, told the Washington Post that Richman's death "puts Newtown back into the spotlight again". "On the one side we have research", the foundation's website states. Richman had an office at the Edmond Town Hall where he was found deceased. One facet is to fund "neuroscience research aimed at understanding the brain's chemistry, structure, and circuits that led to violence and compassion".

He spoke last week at Florida Atlantic University's 2019 Violence Summit.

The father of a Sandy Hook victim killed himself Monday, just days after two Stoneman Douglas students also took their lives.

In the past week, two Parkland, Fla., school shooting survivors died from apparent suicides, spurring immediate calls for increased mental health resources for those impacted by these shootings.

Just minutes after leaving a forum about gun violence in schools, Sen.

"When we were faced with this infinite heartbreak we decided we'd play to our strengths as scientists to see if we could answer the "why" questions everyone had", Richman told ABC affiliate WTNH in 2017.

"My heart breaks for this family, which has already endured so much", he said. "My prayers go out to them".

Richman was the father of Avielle Richman, a first-grader killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary shooting.

Heslin noted that Richman was among Sandy Hook relatives suing the conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for saying the Newtown shooting never happened.

If you or someone you know may be considering suicide, contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 (En Español: 1-888-628-9454; Deaf and Hard of Hearing: 1-800-799-4889) or the Crisis Text Line by texting 741741.
