This is the suicide of Ronnie McNutt, which has been posted on many platforms including non gore platforms like YouTube and TikTok. Reportedly it has even been seen on TikTok by young children. It’s not a rare gore video, but it’s a classic nonetheless.

There were many stories and alleged reasons circulating on the web, but many of them were false. In truth McNutt was a 33-year-old army veteran who had served in Iraq and was dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental health issues. At the night of his death he had been drinking quite a lot and he had recently broken up with his girlfriend. On the livestream he was arguing with people and talking about suicide. At the moment of suicide there were more than 200 people watching the livestream, including some of his friends.

He was fed up with a lot of things and the break up combined with alcohol probably pushed him over the edge. The person he was seen speaking over the phone with could very well be his ex girlfriend, but that is just speculation.
