Open-mic suicide

In April 2011 Kipp Rusty Walker cut himself to death in front of a few people gathered for an open-mic event at Strictly Organic Coffee Company in Bend Oregon.

I worked there for a while in 2014. The atmosphere was dark, and my employment ended badly.

I wonder why anybody would name their kid Kipp Rusty if they wanted him to grow up and be a man.

Mr. Walker, 20 years old, stabbed himself repeatedly in the chest in front of 15 or 20 people, who thought it was merely a performance.
