Tiger King’s Jeff Johnson’s death apparent suicide

I want to start by pleading with anyone who may be considering ending their lives that they first reach out to either a trusted friend, a counselor or a hotline.  Having battled my own demons, my heart breaks for those in that type of anguish.  You are loved.

Jeff Johnson was a colorful character on the Netflix doc Tiger King. The reptile dealer was interviewed in the fourth episode.

His wife Charity said he took his life in front of her (!!!) during an argument.  She told authorities that her husband killed himself in front of her during their argument in the garage. Their children, ages 4 and 5, were in the house during the time of the incident, per CNN.

Johnson was taken to the hospital shortly after he was found to have a pulse at the scene, according to the police report, but he was pronounced dead at the hospital. The report also indicated that Johnson had “no mental health history.”
