Joel Selvin’s article in today’s San Francisco Chronicle fills in a lot of details, including the gruesome means of Vince’s departure.
It also gives a little more information about Vince’s December 1995 suicide attempt in Santa Cruz. Add that to what Bobby told me on the air 6/14, that they checked him in at the ER as “John Doe” to keep it out of the newspapers, and you wind up with a much more humane story than vincewelnick.com webmaster Mike Lawson’s initial blast (which he moderated considerably not long after) suggested.
I’m on the road, on a terrible connection, so I can’t add anything at the moment.
Read it if you have the stomach.
