NYC Couple Who Hosted Life Advice Radio Show Offs Themselves By Putting Helium Bags Over Their Heads

NYDN - A Brooklyn couple who hosted a radio show called “The Pursuit of Happiness” committed suicide together by putting plastic bags over their heads and inhaling helium. Lynne Rosen and John Littig, who were found dead on a couch in the living room of their Park Slope apartment, left behind two notes, police said Wednesday. “We’re going to do this together,” was the gist of Littig’s note, sources said.  Littig said, without explanation, that he could not watch his wife suffer any more. “Her note basically said she was sorry for doing this,” a police source said. “We believe she had some psychological problems.” Until their decomposing bodies were found Monday, the couple had been best known as the hosts of a self-help radio show on WBAI-FM.  Rosen, 46, was a psychotherapist. Littig, 48, was a motivational speaker and a musician. And for an hour every month, they took to the airwaves and doled out advice on how to be your best self. “People get scared to make changes, right, and to step out of that comfort zone,” Rosen said on the April show. They used what’s described on the FDNY web site as “exit bags” to kill themselves. They are “fast becoming one of the most prescribed forms of Euthanasia worldwide,” the site says. “They are said to provide a fast, peaceful, undetectable death to those wishing to commit suicide.”

What a couple of nutbag assholes. Giving out life advice to all their listeners and then putting a couple bags over their heads. What a fucking wacky way to off yourself. Really when you look at it, the whole thing is just so stereotypical Brooklyn. So hipster. Like in their never-ending pursuit to be ironic and non-conformist they decided to be known as the life advice therapists who killed themselves. So clever! So unexpected! And so creative with their helium bags. What a bunch of fucking wackos. Just goes to show how some therapists can actually be the craziest of all.
