Nebraska Chat Room Death Ruled Accidental

Local news with video report

Back in March, a Bellevue teen shot and killed himself while others watched in a video chat room. Was it an accident? Or suicide? To find the answer, police launched a three-month investigation that spanned the globe. 

A 911 call from Florida led Bellevue police to a home in the Castle Ridge neighborhood. It was an online friend of 19-year-old Trevor George that called, worried he might have shot himself.

The buzz about what happened in the Tinychat video chat room that night was archived online. According to the chatter, George went by two screen names, TZIF and Jesus, with variations of Jesus.
Sad story. I wonder whose gun it was.
