His family doesn't want to accept that he commited suicide.It wasn't really like a full on suicide in my opinion. He was sad towards the end of his life due to his partner's custody battle but he was drunk (he might have been a bit high also, i'm not sure) and that's what did him in. Apparently, he called his partner (Paula yates) ex-husband and that didn't end well so I guess due to his alcohol consumption and coupled with that, he wasn't thinking and you know the rest.
