An excerpt from Kutner’s Obituary:

Mercer County Courier
April 7, 2009
Dr. Lawrence Kutner died on Thursday, April 2nd from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was 33 years old.
“Dr. Kutner was a hard working, young doctor with a kind, unassuming, gentle manner. He will be missed by all of us”, said Dr. Lisa Cuddy, Dean of Medicine at Princeton Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, where Dr. Kutner worked.

I love the show! House is addicting but this stunt came out of the blue for me. A shot to the head! A suicide! Never saw it coming. Neither did House, nor did anyone else.
