          Teen Devastated By Younger Brother’s Suicide Says He Feels Like It Was Dad’s Fault


          October 28, 2016

          Pamela claims Pete abandoned her, their 17-year marriage and their two sons when she alleges he started an affair with Lori, in 2011.

          Pete and Pamela blame each other for contributing to the death of their 15-year-old son, Peter Jr. who committed suicide in March 2016.

          ”After the divorce, both boys had depression issues,” says Pamela. “I believe Pete and Lori are responsible for my son Peter’s suicide.”

          “DSS did say that she was responsible for leaving him alone when she knew he was depressed,” says Pete.

          In the video above, 18-year-old Joseph is pointing the finger at his father. “My dad’s behavior is the reason why my brother committed suicide,” he says. Joseph says he has only met Lori once. He says he has no relationship with his father’s new wife, “and I don’t want to.”
