John Coughlin RIP (1985-2019)
Our thanks to Sean for this. The start of the piece:
Skating champion John Coughlin has reportedly killed himself a day after he was suspended from the sport over abuse allegations.
The US figure-skating champion was mourned by his sister, Angela Laune, on the day his body was found in his father’s home.
She wrote on Facebook: “My wonderful, strong, amazingly compassionate brother John Coughlin took his own life earlier today… I have no words.”
The US Center for SafeSport, an organisation that investigates bullying, and physical and sexual abuse in sports, placed Coughlin, 33, under restricted eligibility in December, without revealing the nature of the accusations against him.
