i know this is unrelated to it, but it reminds me of the death of Meriwether Lewis's death? wether it was suicide or murder? i had to write and essay on it in class before school ended and it really peaked my interest for a history assignment. personally i believe it was murder because there's no way he could've shot him self twice in the head with gun that made tennis ball wholes in things up close.

People seem to have a really difficult time understanding suicide. For just about every famous artist/musician who ends their life, there always is some sort of conspiracy theory that inevitably follows. It’s like people just can’t wrap their mind around the thought of harming themselves with fatal intent. So they look for reasons to doubt. I actually hate this, because I think it takes away from the truth, this person was in pain. It’s just another form of looking the other way, not wanting to confront the fact that mental health and depression is a huge problem in our society. It’s easier to say it was murder than to say, this person was suffering inside and not enough is being done to help people. It’s easy to ignore it until it’s your friend or family member.

That being said, when you look at wheat field with crows, which some people argue was his last paintings (although some disagree....but it was among his last anyways), the man seemed pretty depressed. The use of colour is very different from what we usually associate with him, the crows, the unfinished road not leading anywhere all have a depressing vibe that most of his work doesn't have. I remember being obsessed with that painting when I was young, like 6-8 years old, before even knowing about the suicide story or that it was among his last paintings......The painting looked like how I felt I supposedly told people......pretty depressing, right lol? One other important thing that would have been interesting to mention is the theory that his ear being cut off was not a self inflicted wound but the result of a sword duel fuelled by alcohol and that Van Gogh came up with the whole I did it myself story to cover for fellow artist Paul Gaugin (who definitely is involved in that story in one way or another) with whom he had been working at the time.....which would indicate a possible tendency to cover up for others' actions....as Shane said, he appeared to be a very sweet man (although he definitely had a temper, suffered from mental health issues including hallucinations and bursts of anger).

Please make an episode about Grégory Villemin, very famous unsolved case in France, a bit similar to JonBenét Ramsey!

Unsolved: How to pronounce Van Gogh

19 hours ago

what if he went to the field to paint and then as he went home he came across someone pointing him with a gun and said that he would shot him if he didn't give him any money because he's struggling. since vincent himself could relate to the person he gave the person his whole art gear but maybe the person accidentally shoot him.

I have heard a theory that Vincent Van Gogh was autistic and that he cut his ear because the sex worker he gave it to had severely burns and needed money to pay her hospital burns ( hence she worked as a prostitute ) but due to her injuries she looked different and therefore was looked down upon, Vincent could relate to her and therefore have his ear to her so that she wasn’t alone in being different, of coarse this was viewed different but his intentions were thought to be “I’ll give them something else to look at” rather than a form of psychopathic love.

The film Loving Vincent is an interesting somewhat fictitious look at what the people of Auvers thought of Vincent after his death and their recount of his death. It's also animated in the style of art and is definitely a good watch for both the more in-depth look at the case and for the artistic imagery. It's a heartwarming homage to the artist and I wish more people would watch it.

1 day ago

There's also a part where one of the inhabitants of the village explains why it couldn't be suicide due to the angle that the gun would need to be held to be a self-inflicted wound. However, I don't remember the film mentioning a Gaston, though Rene is and is posed as the culprit.

Please do an episode on bible john, Jack the stripper or the croydon poisonings (the mystery of Birdhurst rise). These are British unsolved cases of serial killings and I believe they would be far more interesting than this fourth series.
