Josh Marks, who competed on "" in 2012, has died. Marks was pronounced dead on Friday, October 11 because of self-inflicted gunshot. Marks' lawyer, Lisa Butler, said on Sunday that the lack of mental health treatment facilities and easy access to gun contributed to his death.
"It is overwhelming to think that with proper, intensive treatment, Joshua may still be with us. He was a jewel with so much talent to offer this world. But, in his state of mind, he turned to the streets for a gun and easily got it," Butler said, as quoted by CNN.
