Vermont State Police are investigating the death of a 23-year-old Williamstown man who shot himself after escaping a traffic check and smashing into a tree, according to police. Jonathan Gilbert died early Wednesday morning from a single gunshot wound, according to police. The incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. when officers with the Vermont Criminal Intelligence Center conducted a routine motor vehicle stop in Williamstown, about 30 miles north of Boston.
After stopping Gilbert's car for having an expired registration tag, officers noticed signs of impairment and asked him to perform some field sobriety tests. During the encounter, Gilbert fled on foot through some nearby woods before shooting himself in the head. He was found a few minutes later by another officer who had been sent to assist with the original stop.
Gilbert was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for his injuries but could not be saved. The state police is withholding his name until his family has been notified.
This is at least the third suicide this year in Williamstown, which has a population of about 7,000 people. In April, a 22-year-old Williamstown woman killed herself by jumping off the back of her parent's truck while it was driving down a highway near her home town. Her cause of death was also reported as a gunshot wound to the head.
Suicidio Jonathan Hale/Cause of Death On February 28, 1966, Hale committed suicide. That evening, he was discovered dead in his room at the Motion Picture & Television Country House and Hospital in Woodland Hills, California. Hale had committed suicide with a.38 caliber revolver lying beside his corpse. The death certificate listed his cause of death as "self-inflicted gunshot wound to head."
He was born on January 4, 1919 in San Francisco, California. His father was an attorney who worked for the federal government during World War I. His mother was a homemaker. When he was eight years old, his family moved to Los Angeles where his acting career began.
Hale first appeared on screen in the 1944 film Lifeboat when he was 11 years old. He went on to have prominent roles in many more films including The Lost Weekend (1945), Angel Face (1944), and The Spiral Staircase (1946). In addition, he made several television appearances between 1952 and 1961.
Hale married three times. His first marriage was to actress Patricia Lake in 1946 until their divorce in 1949. They had one son together named John David Hale. The couple's only child died in infancy due to kidney disease. Hale's second marriage was to actress Anne Jackson in 1951 which ended in 1956 after two children were born into this marriage too.
Several gang members had broken into his house with the intent of murdering him. Out of terror, he grabbed a rifle and used it to defend himself. However, he accidentally shot his father in the head and killed him. After this incident, he decided to move out of Chicago and start over.
Willie was only 13 years old when this incident happened. He had no criminal record and was being raised by his mother and grandmother. However, because of this act, he was sent to an institution for young offenders where he stayed until he was 18. When he got out, he moved away from Chicago.
He got a job working as a truck driver and later as a security guard. In 1993, he was driving down the street when two men approached his truck with a gun in their hands. Fearful for his life, he pulled the trigger of the rifle he was holding and killed them both.
This made him face jail time. However, since he was only acting in self-defense, the judge gave him a sentence of 20 years to life in prison.
When he first entered the prison system, he was assigned to a high-security facility in Illinois called the Youth Center. Here, he met other young inmates who taught him how to box and fight. Two years later, he was transferred to an adult prison in Minnesota.
