“OMG. I don’t know why he could have done that. Two or three weeks ago he was very happy. She went to the doctor for a hair implant. He wanted to look very good. I really don’t understand what made him do this crazy thing. He was not a depressed type. He had his moments, but not so bad that he would do things like that. He often went to his family abroad, there he recharged his batteries. I really don’t know what happened. I don’t understand. I am not a follower of this gesture”, declared Cătălin Botezatu.
