David wanted to die on his own terms and if he didn't get the death penalty, which is strangely what he really wanted, he was going to do it this way. This was his second choice.

Under the circumstances, no one knew him better than me, and I saw no hint (of suicide). If I had, I certainly would have said something. I think he was determined to die on his own terms. And if he couldn't get the death penalty, this was his second choice.
