    I read they said nothing like ricin was found. When I searched for assisted suicide chemicals, I came up with this. Have no idea if these are what he has or had in his apartment. FBI hasn't really said other than it was a chemical used in assisted suicides & purchased online apparently.

    I wonder if he was ever treated for depression? It's not too late for Ryan. I hope he turns up soon & alive.

    I just finished reading his letter, not sure if I can link it here. He has it listed via (mac) pages.

    First thing after reading this story, media headlines are NOT matching up with the tone of the letter. The FBI being involved seems really strange for a suicide letter, does it not? Ryan also hinted at someone "arriving today" that complicated things, at least his betterment, and it's what set into motion the letter and social posts.

    Also, reading his FB page, his friends are trying to clear up the explosive part of this story. They are saying that FBI didn't say that he had explosives?

    wanted on suspicion of possessing explosives.

    I am reading through his social media and apparently this explosive material is actually something that can assist in suicide?

    This story is really strange, and heartbreaking.
    I hope Ryan can find reinforcement from those trying to reach out to him online. He is extremely talented (and funny) according to his social networks. I hope he can make it through and safely get somewhere to get this straightened out.

    Oh gosh! They have said Ryan's car has either Texas or California plates so with that in mind, it could be him. I hope not.

    CA requires a front license plate. This vehicle has one although the picture isn't that clear.

    Both the video and the written say there is a separate scene nearby that may be connected.

    I saw that but I'm hoping since the latest says Ryan's atm was triggered this afternoon, that he's not in Texas.
