Nineteen year old Kpp Rusty Walker took the stage at Strictly Organic Coffee Company in Bend, Oregon and performed “Sorry for all the Mess, on keyboard, and then stabbed himself over and over in the chest. He did not survive. The audience thought it was an act and applauded wildly until they saw him collapse on the floor, lying in his own blood.
Some of Kipp’s friends say he the told them he wanted to kill himself, but said no one knew how to help Walker who was, reportedly, transient. His parents recently took him to a psychiatric facility after one of Kipp’s friend was told he wanted to kill himself. His parents live in Alaska. He was released soon after entering. Now the facility is being investigated for possible malpractice in treating Walker.
