A Baptist pastor who reportedly had an account on cheaters’ website Ashley Madison has taken his life.
New Orleans Pastor John Gibson, 56, was found dead by his wife less than a week after hackers exposed the names of accounts on the adultery website.
His wife, Christi, said he left a suicide note addressing his struggles with depression and his remorse surrounding the Ashley Madison saga.
“He talked about having his name on there, and he said he was just very, very sorry,” Christi told CNNMoney.
She explains how John spent his life helping others but could not help himself.”It wasn’t so bad that we wouldn’t have forgiven it, and so many people have said that to us, but for John, it carried such a shame,” she told CNNMoney.
She also added that he was afraid he would lose his job.
