Henry Hamilton, a 64-year-old tanning salon owner, allegedly told his partner before the election that “if Barack gets re-elected, I’m not going to be around”. On Nov. 8, two days after the election, the man was found dead next to two empty prescription bottles and his living will with the words, “Do not revive! F--- Obama!” written on it.
The empty prescription bottles were previously filled with Xanax and Seroquel, which treat anxiety and schizophrenia. An overdose of either of these medications can lead to coma and death.
Hamilton’s partner, Michael Cossey, told Key West police that his partner had been “very upset about the election results". Cossey told officer Anna Dykes that he had returned to the condo he shared with his partner after a late night of playing cards and fell asleep around 6 a.m. on the sofa. He woke up to the sound of a police officer knocking on the door.
