Dominic Di-Natale, 43, a former correspondent for Fox News was found dead Wednesday in Colorado of an apparent suicide, the county coroner told Fox News, The Washington Post reports.
Di-Natale, who owned property in Jefferson County, Colo., was seen most recently covering the protests in Ferguson, MO at Thanksgiving. He was found after a friend alerted authorities to check on him. The friend had been concerned about Di-Natale's mental state due to "serious undisclosed health issues," the Post Reports.
The British-born Di-Natale had a long and varied career, starting out writing for magazines in 1989. He joined FOX in 2007, where he covered international news as a freelancer for the network's West Coast bureau, People.com reports. It was here where he worked his way up to covering the 2011 raid in which Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was killed, Variety reports.
"We were extremely saddened to learn of Dominic's passing and send our deepest condolences to his family and friends," a spokesperson for Fox News said in a statement, per the Post. "He was an esteemed journalist and an integral part of our news coverage throughout the Middle East."
Megyn Kelly took to Twitter to express condolences, People.com reports:
"So sad to hear Fox's Dominic Di-Natale has died. A great reporter, who off-air was always trying to help US troops. I will miss him."
