God only knows what drives people to doing things like this. I can't even begin to imagine what his family and friends are feeling right now.

Thoughts are with Dave's partner, and, of course, his two daughters... I can't say any more, but respect for the heritage he has left all those people he never knew - and there is no greater respect than that... peace

Paul Hester was never one of those likely to join the semi-heroic martyrs of rock history. As SuperOwl said, a total tragedy for his family, and we can only speculate on his state of mind. Awful news. :(
