Chestnut Hill College Professor Commits Suicide

by MullOverThis

Chestnut Hill College adjunct professor Rudolf Alexandrov committed suicide on August 3, 2011.  Reputedly, according to the 71-year-old professor jumped approximately 30 feet to his death on campus inside of St. Joseph’s Hall.  The tragic death was observed by some of his colleagues.

Although there have been mixed reports surrounding the details of Alexandrov’s suicide, Chestnut College has issued a statement  clarifying the events of August 3.

My prayers are for the entire university administration, faculty, staff, students and Professor Alexandrov’s wife, family and friends.  Sometimes life becomes overwhelming and it is always a tragedy when one finds death as the only resolve.
