August 03, 2011
A priest of the Mobile, Alabama archdiocese has been found dead, in what archdiocesan officials report was a suicide.
Father Ernest Hyndman, Jr, was found death in his rectory on Tuesday morning, August 2. He had reportedly made another suicide attempt five years ago.
The death was the second reported suicide by an American Catholic priest in less than a month. Early in July a priest of the Springfield, Massachusetts diocese took his own life.
