“Well, I couldn’t stop crying,” he said. “I’m Apache, I wasn’t going to commit suicide with a gun or something. I was going to take a lot of pills because she left – Beth left all of her big pills there. So I thought, I just need one drink a water.”
“You were going to commit suicide?” Dr. Oz asks him.
“Oh yeah,” Duane admitted while choking back tears.
