U.S Figure Skater Commits Suicide A Day After Suspension

33-year-old John Coughlin, a two-time U.S. pairs champion suspended, on Thursday, from figure skating, killed himself on Friday, his sister said in a Facebook post.


Angela Laune, Coughlin’s sister, said in the post that her “wonderful, strong, amazingly compassionate brother John Coughlin took his own life. … I have no words.”

The United States Center for SafeSport, whose investigations typically involve allegations of sexual assault, placed restrictions on Coughlin in December and suspended him on Thursday.
