n article in the Belfast Telegraph on Sunday, March 8, 2009 explains that US police are investigating an American man (William Melchert-Dinkel) in connection with the suicide death of Mark Drybrough.

Melchert-Dinkel, a nurse from Minnesota, is allegedly connected to the death of Canadian Nadia Kajouji (18), a Carlton University student who committed suicide in March, 2008. Melchert-Dinkel allegedly counselled Kajouji via the internet to commit suicide.

The article in the Belfast Telegraph stated:
US police are reportedly investigating whether an American man helped a British man kill himself, after meeting in an internet chatroom. 
Mark Drybrough from Coventry took his own life in 2005. 
His family have said they found emails giving him detailed instructions on how to hang himself. 
It is being reported that police in Minnesota have confiscated computer equipment from a 46-year-old alleged to have encouraged Mr Drybrough, and others, to kill themselves.
