Hunter S. Thompson: 1937-2005
The Coolest and Craziest of Writers (Just Ask Johnny Depp), the Inventor of 'Gonzo' Journalism Takes His Own Life at 67
The prolific Thompson wrote 15 books and was recently working on a piece for Playboy about a movie starring Sean Penn. But in recent years the author, who lived with his second wife, Anita, 32, and had a son, Juan, 40, endured back and hip operations and talked of ending his life. On Feb. 20, at 67, he put a bullet in his head at his house near Aspen. His gonzo spirit, however, lives on. In accordance with his final testament, his body was cremated, and his ashes will be fired from a cannon—perhaps provided by Depp, says his neighbor Michael Cleverly. "He died with dignity," says the county sheriff's spokesman Joe DiSalvo, a friend. "He did what he wanted to do, on his terms."
