Elliott was not as hopeless and helpless

“Elliott was not as hopeless and helpless as Jennifer Chiba made him out to be. She also asserted that he was terribly unstable because he had gone off all of his medications, yet anti-depressants were still found in his system, so that can’t be entirely true either. He was working on an unfinished project (and it’s unlikely he would have just said “fuck it” for that alone). He seemed hopeful and positive when I last saw him (It may have been June but somehow I thought it was later than that–more like August or early September). It’s so convenient to use his past bouts of depression coupled with his music as evidence of his suicidal tendencies. That’s the trouble. He has the image of a gloomy, sad guy (which he was only part of the time, whereas most of the time he was a lot of fun). It was so easy to make his death out to be a suicide from the legacy he created. I have a strong hunch that Jennifer Chiba knew this and continues to use this to her advantage and it’s exactly how she has been able to manipulate the story in her favor. They weren’t together for that long, but I knew him well for sixteen years, and I feel strongly that more should be done to uncover the facts.”
