"60 Days In" star Nate Burrell tragically took his life, enduring a self-inflicted gunshot wound hours after he left a lengthy heartbreaking note on social media about his life struggles.


Nate Burrell, star of docuseries "60 Days In," tragically passed away on October 31, after taking his own life. The sad news was confirmed by his sister, Chelsey Walker, who told TMZ that her brother shot himself in downtown Allegan, Michigan. Hours before his devastating death, he took to Facebook to leave a lengthy, heartbreaking note that read:

"This isn't an admission of guilt. I'm just tired, I've been through so much in my life, the pain of my situation now hurts more than I ever imagined. I can't keep going on."

Burrell, a former marine, was expecting his first child with his wife Jordan, whom he recently split from. In the post, he apologized to Jordan and his loved ones for letting them down and not being there for his son.


Burrell, who had a degree in criminal justice and law enforcement, gained fame for his appearance in the A&E reality series.

Burrell insinuated that he was having problems with Jordan as he wrote that she had threatened to ruin his life some weeks before and told him that she wished he would end his life. However, he maintained that his post wasn't to vilify her.

The 33-year-old, who served in the military for four years from 2006 to 2010 and did two tours in Iraq, spoke about his mental health struggles after being discharged in 2013. He urged the nation to pay attention to the behavioral health of veterans before recalling his story.


He mentioned that he was treated poorly after checking himself into a hospital because of suicidal thoughts. Burrel described the experience as being treated like a criminal and wrote that he was isolated from his friends and family. He added:

"You should be ashamed of yourselves. All I wanted was help, I sought you, and you treated me like an animal."


The reality star concluded his tragic post with a couple of bible verses and a quote about lives not being defined by mistakes but hearts. Burrell, who had a degree in criminal justice and law enforcement, gained fame for his appearance in the A&E reality series.

The show sends people undercover in prisons in a bid to document the horrors inmates endure. He and eight others entered the prison system under fake identities for two months and documented several happenings in the two seasons he spent on the show.

According to reports, an estimated one million people die from suicide annually, and even celebrities aren't immune. While it happens that loved ones of the deceased might be unaware, some signs can help one notice any abnormality.


They include feelings of hopelessness, social isolation, self-destructive behavior, and talking about death frequently. It is advised never to dismiss any of the signs and speak to someone you notice exhibiting such signs.

We have tragically lost other stars in 2020, including Jeremy Orr, Conchata Ferrell, Joe Morgan, Johnny Nash, Clark Middleton, Kenzo Takada, and many more. May their souls rest in peace.
