Man commits suicide at ground zero, reportedly distraught over Bush’s re-election

A 25-year-old from Georgia who was apparently distraught over President George W. Bush’s re-election shot and killed himself at ground zero.
Andrew Veal’s body was found Saturday morning inside the off-limits site, said Steve Coleman, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. A shotgun was found nearby, but no suicide note was found, Coleman said.
Veal’s mother said her son was upset about the result of the presidential election and had driven to New York, Gus Danese, president of the Port Authority Police Benevolent Association, said in an interview published Sunday in the New York Times.
