Aaron Swartz Death: I WARNED over-zealous prosecutors that tragic Reddit co-founder Aaron Swartz was suicidal, claims his lawyer

A lawyer who formerly represented Internet freedom activist Aaron Swartz on hacking charges said Monday he told federal prosecutors about a year ago that Swartz was a suicide risk.

Swartz, 26, was found dead of an apparent suicide in his New York apartment Friday.

Andrew Good, a Boston attorney who represented Swartz in the case last year, said he told federal prosecutors in Massachusetts that Swartz was a suicide risk.
