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.

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly expressed her condolences on Twitter.
So sad to hear Fox's Dominic Di-Natale has died. A great reporter, who off-air was always trying to help US troops. I will miss him.
