A 20-year-old US man killed himself live on a webcam on Bulgarian gamers’ forum www.metalgearsolid.org, AFP and other agencies report. Mitchell “Mitch” Lee Stuekerjuergen, aka “Kuja105″, reportedly swallowed antifreeze and pills “after complaining about family problems and a lack of money”, forum administrator Boyan Georgiev told Bulgaria’s BGNES news agency on Wednesday. Stuekerjuergen subesquently died on 4 January in hospital in Illinois.

A certain amount of controversy surrounds the whole sorry affair, with some claiming that other forum members “thought the man was joking, even though he rambled for six hours about the effects of the substances and disappeared from view several times”, as AFP puts it.
