Ghostbusters 2 Twin Commits Suicide





One of the twins who played baby Oscar in the 1989 film Ghostbusters II has committed suicide. Henry ‘Hank’ Deutschendorf – who played the role of the baby along with his twin brother, William – reportedly killed himself at his home in California on June 14. He was discovered by his brother.
The medical examiner has confirmed that Hank killed himself by hanging.

Posting a tribute to his brother, William revealed that his brother had long battled schizoaffective disorder – a combination of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. He ‘fought for his life every day’ and experienced hallucinations, delusions, depression, and mania.

The pair ran a Martial Arts academy in the San Diego area. "It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my twin brother, Hank. On Wednesday, June 14th, 2017, Henry John Deutschendorf II lost his battle with schizoaffective disorder… by the end he had 25 voices, all with different personalities and opinions, but mostly agreeing they did not like Hank. Our parents will always remember him as a loving son."
