Hunter S. Thompson dead by apparent suicide

Feb 21, 2005

The Denver Post is covering this story—I saw it on Drudge. HST’s work was always interesting and close to the edge; for some reason, that work is now over.

Juan Thompson, Hunter’s son, gave a statement to the Post:

On Feb. 20, Dr. Hunter S. Thompson took his life with a gunshot to the head at his fortified compound in Woody Creek, Colorado. The family will shortly provide more information about memorial service and media contacts. Hunter prized his privacy and we ask that his friends and admirers respect that privacy as well as that of his family.
