Friends of the man say they ‘cannot unsee this’ as he filmed his own suicide during a Facebook Live stream.
Breaking: “I cannot unsee this!”: Ronnie McNutt, 33, from Mississippi, killed himself with a shotgun whilst sat at his desk on August the 31st and his video has been shared all across social media including Twitter and TikTok.
There are reports that the video appeared on TikTok’s “For You” trending homepage, which would have made it harder to avoid the footage.
“If you see this guy on your FYP [For You page] please scroll up immediately. It’s very gruesome and I highly suggest you stay away from TikTok for a while,” one Twitter user said.
“I was scrolling TikTok and suddenly there’s a video of a guy that killed themselves with a shotgun. And I am seriously warning you DO NOT watch it DO NOT SEARCH FOR IT because it’s very terrifying and gory so pls BE CAREFUL god damn I’m shaking,” another said.
One friend wrote: “Please say a prayer right now for the family of Ronnie McNutt. He just killed himself live on FB and I cannot unsee this.
“I tried but apparently it wasn’t quick enough to reach him. I wasn’t quick enough. Dear God I wish I could have gotten to him.”
He was a member of Celebration Church Tupelo, which confirmed his death in a post on its Facebook page on September 1.
“In the midst of a sudden tragedy that occurred last night. We grieve with the McNutt Family during this time because passing of our brother in Christ, Ronnie McNutt,” it said.
“Ronnie will be missed by all who loved and knew him. He was very caring, committed, loyal, dependable, and eccentric. He served his church faithfully and was loved by many.
Although events surrounding his death were tragic, we take comfort in our Creator. Believing that because of Ronnie’s confession and conversion as a believer in Christ Jesus, he is currently before our loving Father.”
The reasons surrounding Mr McNutt’s death have not been confirmed.
