Fox News Reporter Dies of Apparent Suicide

Veteran Fox News correspondent Dominic Di-Natale, who recently reported on the riots in Ferguson, Mo., has been found dead of an apparent suicide.

He was 43.

Officials discovered Di-Natale’s body Wednesday in Jefferson County, Co., where the international reporter owned property. The coroner said that he took his own life.

According to Fox News, the U.K. born journalist had been dealing with undisclosed health issues and resigned from the network on Nov. 30.

“We were extremely saddened to learn of Dominic’s passing and send our deepest condolences to his family and friends,” said a statement from a Fox News spokesperson. “He was an esteemed journalist and an integral part of our news coverage throughout the Middle East.”

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly expressed her condolences on Twitter.

Di-Natale, who began as a contributor to BBC World, covered international stories for Fox News and worked out of the network’s Los Angeles bureau.

He also reported on the 2011 raid that killed Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.

    Such a sad day for the community. I’ve heard of seasonal depression. I’m wondering if the holidays effected him in some way, making a situation worse. Lets keep in mind that not everyone is “jolly” and really make an effort to be compassionate during the holiday season. If this was the case, maybe he might have been more apt to communicate his feelings, seeking help, rather than feeling boxed in and now way out. Hope comes in many packages– lets be kind to one another, really engage in conversations and sharing a smile can be the just the present the person needs to feel this time…

    I was absolutely shocked to hear of Mr. Di-Natale’s death. I liked him a lot.
    His reporting was flawless, never letting his audience know his own feelings about things.
    A true Reporter. There should be more like him.

    I immediately thought “just 43yrs old, this must be a bad joke, a hoax” but was reported here and on Fox News site (his employer), so he actually IS gone.

    +RIP+ Dominic D.
    May you now find peace, happiness and good health that you felt you were lacking
