“Yes, I want to talk.”
“The divorce is almost final. We have nothing to discuss.”
“Please, Harold. I got bad news today. It’s stage 4 cancer, and it’s very painful. I’m going to take my life.”
“What do you want me to do? I won’t try to stop you.”
“I’ve typed a note and left it there on the desk. Please read it. It explains everything.”
Harold picks up the note. A gunshot rings out.
“Harold was despondent over the divorce, Officer. He had this suicide note in his hand when I found him.”
