Soap Opera star Nick Santino has committed suicide, he was forty seven. The Brooklyn born actor did so on Monday, the New York Post does report. Santino had so much hurt and grief just after his pit-bull Rocco, who he loved so much, was euthanized Tuesday — the same day Santino did turn forty seven.
”Today I betrayed my best friend and put down my best friend,” Santino wrote in a suicide note, according to close friend Stuart Sarnoff. “Rocco trusted me and I failed him. He didn’t deserve this.”
Santino did appear on seven episodes on All My Children and six episodes of Guiding Light. He supposedly overdoses on pills.
The actor’s pet Rocco has been cremated; friends tell The New York Post Santino‘s remains will also be cremated.
