Matthew McGuirk
Date: 12/3/2011 Album ID: 1373021
Matt McGuirk was 31 when he died Oct. 8, presumably from an accidental overdose, though his family is still waiting for autopsy results. Not that it matters. While the drugs might have killed him, Matt's family already knows what took his life. The trauma of childhood sexual abuse. Read the story here.
