Was Carmen Ortiz a factor? Maybe. But I don't know, because I didn't know Aaron.
What I do know is that depression has its own insidious way of taking hold of even the strongest-seeming people, and it can make them do things that seem completely out of the blue to everyone around them.
That can be good or bad in terms of how she's interpreting everything, but it's not like she's randomly bloviating on the Internet.
But even Taren admits that in his last 24 hours, Aaron did show signs of depression. Obviously that's not a lot of time, but unfortunately it doesn't take a lot of time to do what Aaron did.
At the very least, I think that his depression eliminates the idea that his prosecution was unquestionably the primary reason he commit suicide.
