Empathy, tact, respect for privacy, etc.
Most people respect it, some apparently attach less importance to it.
Respect for the privacy of the dead is here at stake.
Certain norms and values are obviously not universal and vary depending on education, culture, age, and geographic location.
In the name of free speech, this can sometimes lead to embarrassing situations.
The question then arises whether it is wise in any circumstances, throwing around his opinion.

I see that the administrators from this forum guide this thread in a sensible and wise manner. I, and no doubt many forum members, appreciate this very much.

Sad. So much about this is so sad.

I wish the need to speculate and sensationalize didn't permeate our culture.

When this type of death is ruled accidental, it is almost always what was mentioned. It's fairly common.

Yes, exactly, and no matter how he passed it naturally does not diminish any of his contributions to the magical arts community - people will be using his instructional videos for generations to come. However, I think it is reckless to regard the facts as "fake news." The facts are he was found dead in the dressing room with a bag over his head, and it has been ruled accidental, and that it had nothing to do with an illusion of effect. As adults we all know what that adds up to, and to bury your head in the sand and pretend that isn't the case, or to call such reports as "fake news" seems silly to me.
Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.

This is very sad news. I enjoyed Daryl's products very much, and learned a lot from them.

It's sad how people are infantilized. We hear about someone who died of hanging, and members reasonably inferred suicide. You'll note that I didn't; I was skeptical based on other details and reports. I withheld judgement. Others upthread speculated about depression and darkness, yet meddlesome pearl-clutchers did not issue any warnings, and those posts certainly were not scrubbed. I stated what I was personally inclined to believe based on the evidence available, so let's not pretend this is about "speculation." It's victorianism masquerading as a concern for truth.

My first magic VHS was Daryl. I was going to attend his lecture this weekend at the castle. The man was an exemplary magician and an unparalleled pleasure to be around. I never, and I mean never saw him without a smile on his face (even off stage). What a tragedy.


" I never, and I mean never saw him without a smile on his face (even off stage). " Never more truer words.

Much like Aldo , Daryl helped my magic so much and was a true pleasure to be around.

You can view the coroner's report at: http://mec.lacounty.gov/wps/portal/mec/m......17-01586

The ruling is suicide. The case is closed.

Daryl was a wonderful performer and a great person as well. My heart goes out to his family and to all who knew him. It's a sad day indeed.

Thanks Mike for this info.

It is a sad time for the magic community - Daryl gave us so much.

Suicide is so tragic.

Daryl was a member of IBM Victor St Leon Ring 192, although he was only able to come to special events such as auctions, where he bought generously. He often came to lectures by visiting magicians at our club and Grand Illusions. Always wanting to learn more. The lecturers always paid tribute to him. He always brought a smile to my face. RIP

I was having dinner with a friend in the dining room at the Magic Castle that night when I heard the news from another member passing by. The sad news turned the festive mood of the Castle to a somber and shocked group of people.

The shows that were ajecent to the area of the incident were canceled and the guests were diverted to other parts of the building where magician members entertained groups

Soon afterwards the decision was made by the management to cancel the last dinner seating and the Magic Castle closed at 11:30.

So very shocking and sad to lose such a humble, likeable person, a tremendous talent, and a great teacher. Rest in peace, Daryl.
