Tim Barnett Suicide
Bradford Wagner, 37, AKA Tim Barnett, a somewhat memorable 90s gay porn star, put himself on the ever-growing list of gay porn stars who’ve offed themselves by hanging himself in prision as he awaited trial for seven rape charges in Texas and Colorado (thanks Andy.)

A couple of readers have asked if he was accused of raping men or women since the article linked doesn’t say. According to this article from last year, he was accused of raping women. Was his suicide an admission of guilt? You’ve got to wonder …
I found these paragraphs from said article to be particularly eerie:
On Wednesday, police received lab results from the CBI linking Wagner to the four sexual assaults that occurred in and around the Tantra Lake apartment complex in Boulder. It at least one of the rapes, the suspect wore a stocking mask and surgical gloves and was armed with a weapon.
The suspect in the apartment rapes was described as a white man in his mid- to late-20s, about 5-foot-8, with a medium build and short brown hair. The suspect had no noticeable accent and sounded well-educated. The attacker also smelled of cigarette smoke, according to several of the women who were raped.
