08 Oct A Strange Pattern of Suicide and Young Death in Kerry Von Erich’s Family
Mental illness is known to run in families. The wrestler Kerry Von Erich committed suicide at the young age of 33 from a gunshot wound. What is more interesting is that he had 6 brothers. Two of his brothers also committed suicide. Only 1 of his brothers is still alive. His real name was Kerry Adkisson. If you read deeply into his life and his families, you can clearly see that something hereditary is there.
His brother, Jack Adkisson Jr. died of an accidental electrocution at the age of 7. His other brother David, died at the age of 25 from an inflamed intestine. His other brother Mike died at the age of 23 from a drug overdose. His other brother Chris was found at the age of 21 from a suicide with a gun. His parents shockingly divorced after 42 years of marriage. This family seems to have gone through lots of tragedy. Most having to do with early deaths of family members.
