For Post Mortem - I'm just spitballin' here, but is it possible that Theo killed Vincent?

Theo said Vincent had stated that if he ever became a nuisance or burden, he would kill himself (and it's likely Theo, as Vincents brother and closest friend, would've seen his dismay when he told him about his business plans) - but Vincent himself had said he frowned upon suicide and would never commit such an act... It doesn't add up. What if Theo was lying to cover up his crime?

It's clear Vinny boy had one or more mental illnesses, and it's common for mental illnesses to run in families. It's a stretch, but what if Theo also had similar illnesses and was just high-functioning?

He'd just become a father and had plans to start his own business. Both of those things are a lot to handle on their own, emotionally and financially, but he was also financially supporting his older brother and realistically there didn't seem to be an end in sight. If you add an unstable mental state into this equation, it could be plausible that either Theo hired someone to kill Vincent and dispose of his belongings, or that Theo killed Vincent himself.

This would explain the distance between Vincent and the gun, why they couldn't tie a gun to Vincent, but most importantly it explains why Vincent claimed it was suicide - he was protecting his little brother.

I would love to hear your take on this theory! #postmortem

FUN FACT: Gogh was extremely depressed and once drank yellow paint because he thought it would make him happy, nearly dying from it, and therefore was not allowed into his painting studio until his mental state improved

With theory 1, he probably brought his art supplies with him because they were is pride and joy. He then being consumed with grief of his brother, yes would have driven him to committing suicide. In the wheat field, well, most of his paintings were of outside- nature; is possible that's where he felt comfortable and knew that no one would be around. Shooting himself would have been very awkward, probably causing his hand to jolt because of the force of the gun, causing the bullet to leave a hole but more than likely to have skimmed his skin and head in the ground. The sound and pain would have shaken Van Goh out of his mental state and he throw the gun in shock. The wheat field would have been far so walking could have taken up to 2.5hours max. The revolver, he could have bought it while on his previous travels around Europe.
