Suicidal thoughts come not because u are an american it comes if you are highly depressed (Depression is seldom noticed) OR due to prescription drugs, after administering when not properly followed up (which is now growing in the word)

Most of the comments here are silly. Have some respect for the dead. No one knows what happened or why it happened so hold on to your theories and nasty puns, till the police inquiry is over.

I wonder whether he was asked to live with Rs. 2500 as all Sri Lankans do now!

I think he was drunk. Americans are known to have suicide thoughts when they are drunk. Better check if he has been drinking possibly the whole day. For this reason many U.S. hotels do not have windows without some sort of drill.

It is our responsibility to protect the tourists. We should find the facts behind this incident. I agree with hussain, just don't show your stupidity, show some respect to the dead.
