Body found on Mount Tamalpais is that of missing IRS agent

Veronica Ruiz I’m not really sure what to write. I just heard that the body found on Mount Tamalpais is indeed Veronica Ruiz’s. She died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, reports SFGate.

I’m conflicted about writing this. Not just because its such a painful subject, but because news reports of suicides can sometimes lead to copycat suicides.

I’ve known friends and acquaintances who’ve had to deal with seemingly insurmountable depression and anxiety before. I know that suicide seems like the easy way out. But there are easier alternatives. There is help; there are people and places you can turn to that will genuinely offer support—even for Asian Americans, where mental health issues and therapeutic care are suppressed.

On behalf of, our heart goes out to the Ruiz family. You have our deepest condolences.
