Former U.S. figure skating champion John Coughlin has murdered himself amidst an inner examination inside his sport.
Coughlin – a two-time U.S. Pairs champion – took his own life Friday in Kansas City, as indicated by his sister, Angela Laune, who uncovered the news on Facebook. Police have allegedly affirmed his demise also.
The Olympic skater had recently been briefly banned from taking an interest in any skating occasions in any way because of an examination launched by SafeSport a month ago. SafeSport is an autonomous body that researches claims of unfortunate behavior, and has “exclusive jurisdiction over allegations of sexual misconduct but also looks into other forms of abuse,” per USA Today.
The examination immediately raised, as he was suspended by U.S. Figure Skating following a proposal from SafeSport. The subtleties of what he’d been blamed for stay indistinct for the time being.
Coughlin was 33.
