Police discovered a 62-year-old man shot himself in the head with a handgun outside of a Norwalk apartment Thursday.

The body of Alan J. Sitterly, was discovered about 6 p.m. behind a West Chestnut Street apartment building by the ravine, according to the Norwalk Police Department. Police were notified at 5:54 p.m. and were on scene until 7:45. North Central EMS also responded.

“It appeared he suffered a gunshot wound,” Capt. Mike Conney said.

Police recovered a .45-caliber Glock handgun near Sitterly’s body. An officer’s report doesn’t indicate if the gun contained any other ammunition.

Conney said the victim had mailed a CD to his sister, who wasn’t able to open it on her computer. He said the woman took the disc to the police station, where a dispatcher played it and the woman heard the message from her brother.

“It just confirmed he wanted to end his life,” Conney said. “The report mentions he was depressed.”

When officers arrived at West Chestnut Street, they couldn’t get into the apartment at first, but once they entered it, nobody was there so police started checking for Sitterly outside of the building, Conney said.

Start working at home with Google! Its by-far the best job Ive had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. Useful Reference http://goo.gl/w7ceUX

Truckin...I find your comments highly disturbing, though I'm guessing that is the point. This man was 62 years old. The probability of this being related to something someone said or did is relatively low. Clearly, you have never dealt with suicide before, and I pray that you never have to. But damn, have a heart.

Truckin:
Are you serious right now? "HAS got to be somone else's fault?" What is wrong with you? did you not read the entire article he said himself that he was depressed! And incase you didn't know that is a real illness and causes things like this to happen. it's sad, really sad and i pray for their family. However NO ONE needs stupid remarks like yours under an article like this.

Your comments really don't surprise me Mr. Case. I think all that grunting that you do in the gym has squeezed your brain right out of your rear. You my friend are callus and cold hearted.

Sad.

In many cases, suicide tends to be a long term solution to a short term problem.

There is a time and a place for your opinion. Whether you're right or wrong, this is an inappropriate time and place for such an opinion.

Seriously, Truckin'? You are such a piece of work. I can't decide if you need a brain like the Tin Man or a heart like the Scarecrow or some courage like the Cowardly lion??? Did someone not love you so you are taking it out on everyone else? Geez....

Sad
Truckins dad is the nicest man you would ever meet. How he could be related to this piece of fecal matter is beyond me

Uputwhatwhere7

I agree.

Do you REAlly know my father? you know the now OLD Mr.who has slowed down on medication and hasn't been provoke in years and the 70's and 80's were not much with social media. So being that i have NEVER went without a job, never hit my spouses-children, clean record, find time to keep in shape, money in the bank, seems i am MUCH better. So i post on this as a realist. All i ever say is things that can NOT be deputed, maybe inappropriate, but TRUE, maybe not with a boo hoo tender kiss, BUT TRUE. I will say i have NO tolerance for bums, lazy people, druggies, and i definitely am NOT one to sit around and listen to your sad story, because odds are you will not get a nice answer, but a REAL answer. I will help a person in NEED, NOT repeat handout. Life is way to short to hold to past experiences so i tend to block them out, but the Milan baptist folks as yourself need to hear just a bit of the real facts.

You're right. I don't know that guy. I know the guy that literally gave me the shirt off his back. Does that qualify you to be such a D-bag? Nope. Sometime a holes like you just need to understand when it's appropriate to speak and when it's time to just shut up.

Trucking,
I don't want you sad story. People change, and we all have a past. What I know is he is a nice man today, and I enjoy talking to him
He adores your sons, and is more than Ind to the elderly lady next door. Put your hate away, or at least do not practice here on a devestated family. A little compassion. Gossip is not impressive, you are malicious and maybe you could be better than the man your father was. You to could make the change for the better he has
Maybe someday someone will call you NICE, it is not this week you have a lot to prove, your dad already has
GOD BLESS
