Malik Bendjelloul dead at 36

13 May, 2014

Bendjelloul throws himself in front of an oncoming subway trainin Stockholm, Sweden, committing suicide. Police:

He jumped in front of a fast-moving metro train. It traumatized both the train conductor and witnesses. The SL [Metro Co.] is working with trauma and crises handling with the train conductor.

His older Brother, Johar Bendjelloul, says that he had been by his brother’s side “almost constantly” in the days before his death.

I know he had been depressed for a short period, and depression is something you can die from. But the question of why, no one can answer; it will ache in my chest the rest of my life.
