Hollywood Actor, Frederick Bowdy Kills Self On Facebook Live Video [PHOTO]
33-year old Hollywood Actor Frederick Bowdy went on Facebook and announced to his followers that he was going to end his life. An out-of-state family member alerted the Los Angeles Police Department of his dreadful intention. But Bowdy, who was in a car, could not be reached before he killed himself, Sgt Tiffany Ljubetic said.
Bowdy was arrested Thursday morning in Santa Clarita on suspicion of sexual assault, according to the Los Angeles Times. He was released Friday after posting $100,000 bail.
Bowdy appeared to be building an acting career, landing a role in the 2016 film ‘Prepper’.
He also worked at the Hollywood Men, a Hollywood strip club, and performed under the name ‘Houston’.
In a video posted to Facebook, Bowdy said he raised two children while attending college and later fathered four more.
Discussing the challenges he faced growing up, Bowdy said he showed promise as a basketball player but added that he was sidelined by injuries preventing him from accepting an opportunity to play in Egypt.
When he was offered a role in a short film, he became more interested in acting, saying: “I love doing something I feel like I can be successful at.”
