Gary Welsh is a prominently blogger in the Indianapolis area. His last blog had some very haunting words. Check out what friends believed caused him to do such a thing.
Prominent Indianapolis blogger Gary Welsh has died, according to Indianapolis police, who say they are investigating the death as a “tragic suicide.”
Welsh was known for hard-hitting blog posts that took swipes at both Democrats and Republicans.
His final post, published Friday, summarized the latest poll results in the GOP presidential primary battle between Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
His post included this disconcerting line: “If I’m not around to see the vote results, my prediction is that Trump wins Indiana with just shy of 50% of the vote, but he will carry every single congressional district and sweep the delegates—assuming the party-chosen delegates honor their rules-bound commitment to support the winner on the first ballot.”
Jim Klimek, an attorney and friend who worked across the hall from Welsh in the Chamber of Commerce Building on Meridian Street, said that Welsh had been depressed lately, in part because the blog was extremely time consuming but generated little revenue.
Devastated by this. God knows Gary and I had our profound disagreements, but I always considered him a friend. https://t.co/g7pEeVo5cz
