Mother of Josh Marks of Masterchef has been given the diagnoses of Schizophrenia Diagnosis 7 just before he took his own life. Appenetly it had been just twnety four hours before dying, so she believes that because he had to deal with some more mental issues had put him over the edge. His mother Paulette Mitchell,
is saying the reality star completed an out-patient treatment program Thursday — where he was diagnosed with schizophrenia … according to a family rep.
Mitchell first told the Chicago Tribune the chef had finally come to terms with his bi-polar disorder … but “couldn’t bear the thought of another diagnosis.”
Paulette claims Marks was upset about the doctors assessment … so she spent the night with him and left the next afternoon to pick her daughter up from school.
A few hours later … she received a phone call from a family member saying people had called saying Josh was walking through a nearby alley clutching a gun.
Mitchell says she rushed over to the alleyway to find him — but instead discovered her son dead from a gunshot wound … with a revolver at his side.
His mother also admits … some of the Marks’ delusions centered around Gordon Ramsay, and that’s why he told cops back in July that the chef had possessed his body when he got arrested. The family is hoping to start a foundation in his honor to help mental illness awareness.
