Iranian Alireza Pahlavi "Passes Himself Away"

It has been reported that Alireza Pahlavi, the younger son of the late shah of Iran has taken his own life. The story as reported by Bloomberg, indicates the time of death to be 2:11 a.m. ES on January 4th.

I find it both sad and disturbing that someone could be so depressed to take their own life, but at the same time I can understand that when you are in a state like that and you stay there for so long - you might lose your entire will to live. If this is how Alireza Pahlavi felt, I am glad that he is out of his misery and wish his family only the best for what will likely be a very difficult road ahead.
