    Blogger explains his suicide in intricate website that goes up the day he kills himself

    Martin Manley hated waking up early, but on his 60th birthday he did -- or more likely, never went to sleep the night before.At 5 a.m. he entered a police station parking lot in a suburb of Kansas City, Kansas, walked to a spot beneath a tree on its far south end and pulled out his phone.He dialed 911.He said this:"I want to report a suicide at the south end of the parking lot of the Overland Park Police Station at 123rd and Metcalf."Then, the blogger and former sports reporter for the Kansas City Star pulled out his Saturday Night Special, a .380 pistol, and shot himself in the head
    Because for more than a year, Manley had been secretly building
    a sweeping, intricate website
    that meticulously explained just that. He set it to publish later on the day he died.
    Hours before his death, Manley scheduled a final post to his blog,
    Sports in Review
    , to publish and sent e-mails and overnight letters via FedEx to Flick, Weller and others telling them what he'd done. With him was a detailed message for police, apologizing for subjecting them to the suicide and explaining that his family and friends would be contacting them in a few hours. He'd left them the number to the police station.

    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
