Mindpixel founder Chris McKinstry announces his suicide online

Chris McKinstry, founder of the Mindpixel project, has expressed suicide intentions on his blog.

Two postings appeared on Friday, 20 January 2006, suggesting that McKinstry has committed suicide by drug overdose.

The wikipedia entry on Chris McKinstry has been upgraded on Friday with his suicide announce. This contains a link to a forum, where he re-posted the suicidal note appeared on his blog. McKinstry said he was posting from an Internet cafè in Chile. Forum participants have tried to dissuade McKinstry and to identify his precise location in Chile tracking the IP address. They also contacted the US embassy in Santiago, which turned the case over to the Canadian embassy (McKinstry is a Canadian citizen).

There have been no new postings on the forum since yesterday morning.
