It should be stated that Taren knew Aaron really, really well. Perhaps better than anyone.

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.

Nor was I trying to imply that she was. If I did, that was my mistake.

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.

I don't think it was only the last 24 hours either. It's kind of hard to ignore signs of it in his blog.
