Depression isolates its victim like no other. No screams are heart as it engulfs the life of the sufferer. Unfortunately, when this illness makes itself known, its already too late.
Brody Stevens had portrayed the character of Officer Foltz in the comedy-packed movie series, The Hangover. After his 2009, he again appeared in part II with the role of Kingsley Guy and that was his last feature-length film. Haunting to believe we won't be seeing him on the screens live again.
He took his own life
According to Hollywood Reporter, Stevens passed away in Los Angeles on February 23, on Friday. He was just 48. Apparently, his demise was caused by his own hands as he had hung himself. The suicide was confirmed by The Blast, they had obtained the records of the 911 call from his home.
It's hard to imagine how Stevens kept all his misery to himself. His fellow comedians are devasted by the shocking news. Particularly, Patton Oswald has come forward to plead all patients of depression to seek help and not feel alone. In his tweet, he urged that anyone who feels suicidal should reach out anyone.
If you are depressed or feeling suicidal please please please please please reach out to ANYONE. I never get to see Brody Stevens again I can’t stand this. #RIPBrodyStevens #818ForLife pic.twitter.com/n1jQhXdOIz— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt) February 22, 2019

After listening to some "Positive Energy" Brody Stevens standup earlier, I can't believe he, out of all people, ended his life. Poor guy. Witty one-liners and good vibes.— Asimov (@Chancesium) February 25, 2019
He left us all a dreadful reminder to pay heed to how alarming depression is. Share this and spread the beacon of help to those who are still imprisoned by their own demons.
