as CNN Reports, O’Connor told fans he asked for help Thursday night after a series of deleted tweets. “I decided to follow my son,” he wrote from an unconfirmed Twitter account linked to his official account. “There is no point in living without him. Everything I touched, I destroyed. I just stayed for him. And now he is gone. ” She also blamed herself for her son’s death, writing that she felt “lost.”
About an hour later, he tweeted again: “I’m sorry. I wouldn’t have said that. I am with the police now on my way to the hospital, ”he posted. “I’m sorry I upset everyone. I was lost without my child and I hated myself. The hospital can help for a while. But I will find Shane. It’s just a delay. ”
Shane disappeared last week after what O’Connor called “two serious suicide attempts.” On January 7, he wrote, “My beautiful son, Nevi’im Nesta Ali Shane O’Connor, the light of my life, has decided to end his earthly struggle now and be with God. May that he would rest in peace and that no one would follow his example. My baby. Love you so much. Please be at peace. “
