This is Dr. Douglas M. Kelley. He was the prison psychiatrist responsible for monitoring the mental health of the high ranking Nazis as they awaited trial in Nuremberg.
He killed himself because after studying the defeated nazis, he couldn't identify an underlying illness that drove the nazis to commit the crimes they did. He discovered that Nazis were normal people who did extremely bad things, and concluded that anyone, anywhere was capable of doing what they did. This drove him insane so he killed himself.
If you can't handle working with the minds of people who do fucked up shit, you probably shouldn't work as a psychiatrist analysing war criminals.
From his wiki:
> He committed suicide in front of his wife and children on New Year's Day 1958 by ingesting a capsule of potassium cyanide.
Sounds like a bit of a cunt, to be honest.
Basically, no one really knows why he killed himself. The article suggests he may have been struggling with internal demons for some time, but stresses there is no clear and obvious link between Nuremburg and his death besides the cyanide capsule.
Good job making up theories and passing them off as facts on an anonymous imageboard, OP. 8/10, since it took less than 5 minutes to prove it was bullshit but I still took the trouble to investigate.
He couldn't face the fact that there was no common underlying link between the individual nazis that could demonstrate there was something fundamentally wrong with them that caused them to do what they did.
It sounds like he was onto something. It's okay to sit behind a keyboard 70 years after these horrors occurred, trying to be edgy. However, sitting before a murderer who explains in intricate detail their daily regimens of homicide, and trying to understand their psyche at a sophisticated level, is entirely different.
He was too proud to try and hep himself. That's part of why he committed suicide. He would never admit he needed help. He would try and figure things out on his own. He couldn't.
>>54854 This plays into it, he tried and failed to find the cause of criminal behavior, and he continued to try after the war. but he never could and it drove him mad.
