Bronx, New York – William Shamstein, 34, was found dead by his girlfriend in his apartment today. According to authorities, Shamstein committed suicide after finding out New York Comic Con tickets were sold out.

Shamstein, who was well known for his creative costumes and outgoing personality, was found dead in his Bronx apartment by his girlfriend, Sarah Rogan. The couple attended every New York Comic Con event since 2009 and both participate in cosplay competitions around the city. Friends and family were always supportive of the couple for their devotion to Comic Con.

Today, fans were able to purchase tickets to New York Comic Con, which is held at the Javitz Center in New York City. Unlike prior years, tickets were sold via a registration system implemented to avoid ticket scalping. The tickets went on sale at 12 noon Eastern Time via a website link emailed to fans who pre-registered for the event. According to many, there was a long queue for fans before they were able to get their hands on a ticket. When the registration process was initially announced, many fans had mixed feelings about the process however the overall feeling made many feel confident that they would be able to score a ticket for the event. The date for the event is set between October 6 through October 9, 2016.

William Shamstein, 34, of the Bronx was known by friends and family as a hardcore comic book fan and cosplay dresser. His girlfriend, Sarah Rogan was also a comic book fan and cosplay model, as both attended comic con every year since 2009 dressed in costumes ranging from Marvel and DC characters to Stars Wars and Japanese Anime characters. According to reports, Rogan arrived at Shamstein’s apartment at approximately 1:45 P.M. when she discovered her boyfriend, unresponsive in his bedroom. Rogan immediately called 911 while attempting to resuscitate her boyfriend.

According to Sarah Rogan, “After I found my boyfriend slumped over in his gamer chair, I ran over to him to see if he was okay. When he did not respond to me, I checked to see if he was sleeping and that is when I saw that he was not breathing. I called 911 and I tried to give him CPR until the ambulance arrived. After a few attempts, I noticed an empty bottle of Percocets on the floor next to him. I then saw an undelivered text message on his iPhone next to him that read:

FML!!! I waited in queue since 12 and now the 3 and 4 day passes are sold out! I live for Comic Con! I wasted my time waiting for nothing. I’m done!

When I read the text fully, which he was going to send to me, that is when I found out he committed suicide.”

According to authorities, when the EMS and police arrived at the scene, Shamstein was pronounced dead. Officer Rodriguez retrieved the iPhone containing the suicide message which went into further detail regarding how frustrated Shamstein was with waiting in queue and missing his opportunity to get tickets.

WTF!!!! I can’t go on with life knowing I’ve missed out on this years comic con!!! Sorry Sarah!!!”

Authorities have not released the full contents of the unsent text messages but has indicated that Shamstein expressed his deep concerns about seeing Stan Lee at comic con as this is suppose to the last year he is attending Comic Con. Sarah Rogan was questioned at the scene and authorities determined that no foul play was involved.

    these Onion type stories may be funny if they actually were funny. but theyre not. its just rehashed plots with new surroundings. You already posted a story of a guy committing suicide over a change to the $20 dollar bill, get some originality….and why are they all about death? if youre trying to be a fake news site, then why are all your stories so grim?

    I blame the damn scalpers! Also he the guy didn’t have to suicide. Him missing out on getting New York Comic Con Tickets is a dumb reason to kill himself. I mean I’m upset for the same reason as him but I’m not going to kill myself over this. I too waited an hour in the queue and when my turn to go to the check out area came the 3 and 4 Days passes were already sold out. Note: Right before my turn came the message on the Queue page said that the 3 and 4 Day Passes were already 75% Sold Out. I still blame scalpers. Whoever is doing the scalping needs to be put in jail and the tickets need to be reclaimed and put back on sale.

    So sad… all individual day tickets (Thursday through Saturday) were still available when he typed that message at 1:45pm. He could’ve attended Comic Con after all. Tickets for Thursday, Friday and Sunday were available well into the evening. Was he confused?
