:cry This is very sad. Incident from July 24, 2020:

Bucks Free Press (April 30, 2021) ~ Wycombe Royal Mail Postman Battling Alcoholism Kills Himself
A Wycombe postman who was struggling with an alcohol addiction hanged himself in his bedroom, a coroner has found.
Darren Bowles was found in his Royal Mail uniform on July 24, 2020 after he killed himself at his home in Hatters Lane.
At an inquest on Thursday, Buckinghamshire Coroners’ Court heard how police were called to Mr Bowles’s home at around 10pm the night before after he texted his manager at Royal Mail, telling her that if he didn’t come to work the next day, it would be because he had killed himself.
