“My beautiful wife is dying and there is nothing I can do about it and I’m in hell.”

Another heartbreaking look, this time through the eyes of family, at the believed-to-be self-inflicted deaths of esteemed cartoonist Richard "Harry Horse" Horne and his wife Mandy. It's a story that has struck a chord with a lot of people both in their community and abroad. I find this interesting not for its lurid aspects but for the fact Horne was a freelancer burdened at home, which is a not-unfamiliar position for many cartoonists.
