NORTH HAVERHILL, NH – A 19-year-old is facing a possible seven years behind bars if he is found guilty of helping his roommate commit suicide.

According to prosecutors, Parker Hogan assisted in the suicide of his roommate, Michael Buskey, who was found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound earlier this month.

Although Buskey’s death was ruled a suicide, police arrested Hogan and charged him with causing or aiding a suicide involving death, along with three counts of falsifying physical evidence.

Police say Hogan told them Buskey had a court date and did not want to go to jail. So the two went into a wooded area near their apartment where they practiced how Buskey would shoot himself.

Hogan then left the woods, waited until he heard a gunshot then returned to make sure Buskey was dead. He removed a phone from Buskey’s pocket that had been playing a song on repeat.

He brought back the gun and a suicide note before calling police and Buskey’s father the next morning.

“I think there’s a lot more behind it,” Buskey’s mother said about her son’s death. “In my personal opinion, I think there’s a lot more behind it than meets the eye.”

Hogan has pleaded not guilty to the charges. If he’s convicted he is facing anywhere from 3 ½ to seven years behind bars. Hogan has posted bail and scheduled to appear in court in July.

I always find myself on the fence on the topic of assisted suicide. Aside from talking someone into committing suicide, which is an asshole thing to do that should be punished, there are just so many situations where I see no issue with it. Not saying this is one of those cases, I’m just sayin’.
