On May 24th of 2014, Adam Smith, 19 of Atherton in the UK, committed suicide by throwing himself under the wheels of an oncoming passenger train. Only now, nearly 7 months later are details of the incident coming to light, and authorities are attributing negative comments on his My Little Pony Fanfiction as a factor.
Adam was known by his tumblr handle "Galaxy Star" http://galaxy-stars-universe.tumblr.com/ as well as his accompanying Youtube channel, where he left the above message.
According to authorities Adam was deeply bothered by comments on his videos regarding accusations of fanfic plagiarism, as well as comments regarding his elocution.
Horse News has located 2 FimFiction accounts associated with his name, though both are now devoid of content.
Some of Adam's stories can still be found on his Youtube account.
Official sources indicate that Adam had a learning disability, and that he was worried about getting a "bad reputation" online over his alleged fanfic plagiarism.
Sergeant Les Peters of British Transport Police said that police investigated and found no evidence of the supposed comments on Adam's laptop, though admittedly comments could be deleted by their authors.
"People who put comments on sites can take them off and they disappear from the system. We looked at comments on the system and certainly they would not justify criminal prosecution."
