He cried for attention, drowned in a noose, says a friend
The death of the popular bartender saddened many people. But some of his acquaintances had an inkling that dark thoughts were running through his head. According to his good friend, who spoke to Expres.cz only under the guarantee of anonymity, the demanding work was to blame.
“Marian has been calling for attention for a long time. He was working at 1000 percent, he was very overworked, he still missed the people at the bar. I think he couldn’t have any space for his private life and friends. He drowned in that noose. We can’t say we’re shocked. Rather, it didn’t even occur to us that he didn’t even have anyone close to him,” a young woman revealed to Expresa, but did not wish to be named.
“I’m sorry, he was a great guy. We were supposed to go for coffee, he wanted to talk, but then he didn’t answer. I’m even more sorry now.” a friend added sadly.
Marian O. was supposed to hang himself backstage during a concert by the Tros Discotequos band of Vojtěch Dyk, Jakub Prachar and Jan Maxián. The guests learned about the suicide only after the event, when the body was discovered.
