“My dog died the day of prom, which was a horrible experience,” he continued, further recounting the events that had eventually triggered his suicidal thoughts. Walsh admitted it was “kind of like a bunch of regular life stuff,” but that it “hit me harder than it should have.”
He fell into a deep depression, one which he presumably believed he would never overcome. Walsh began planning his own death and even penned his final thoughts. “I wrote a note,” he told People magazine in August 2017. “I went to where I was going to do it.”
Once he arrived at the location he had chosen for his suicide, all that was left was for Walsh was to follow through on his plan. “I was probably, like, somewhere between five and ten seconds from taking my own life,” he admitted to Inside Edition. And then, he felt his cellphone vibrate.
