Sad!! American Soap Actor Kills Himself After His Dog Died
Soap opera actor ‘Nick Santino’ committed suicide in New York City last week, hours after putting his beloved dog to sleep, which he said was in response to pressure from the management of his apartment building.
Nick Santino told friends he felt he had “betrayed my best friend,” a 5-year-old pit bull named Rocco, according to the New York Post . He posted on his facebook account that “Today I betrayed my best friend and put down my best friend. Rocco trusted me and I failed him. He didn’t deserve this.”
The 47 year old actor has been seen in programs such as All My Children and Guiding Light. When Nick adopted his dog from a shelter a few years ago he wrote “I did not rescue Rocco, Rocco rescued me,” on his facebook profile. Unfotunately for Nick, after he moved into his Upper West Side apartment in Manhattan,a ban on pit bulls was put in place excluding dogs that were there before the new law.
He was threatened with a $250 fine for dog barking, neighbors started complaining about his dog to the point where Santino was believed to have been harassed over Rocco.
The actor turned 47 last Tuesday and he made a scary phone call to his ex-girlfriend around the early hours, on Wednesday he was found dead in his apartment. Santino will be buried with Rocco, according to family representatives.
Why couldn’t he just move to a new place? Ah well leave your thoughts below. This sad!
