Dominic Di-Natale, Fox News Reporter, Commits Suicide
Dominic Di-Natale, a longtime Fox News correspondent was found dead in his Colorado home early today of an apparent suicide. The UK born reporter was 43.
Di-Natale began his career working for BBC World before becoming covering international news stories for Fox out of its Los Angeles offices. He was one of the first to report on the Pakistan raid that led to the death of Osama bin Laden, and most recently reported on the ongoing protests and riots in Ferguson from Ferguson itself. D-Natale even visited bin Laden’s compound after the terror leader’s death, and was in Egypt’s Tarhir Square during the uprising against Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
A Fox News spokesman released this statement earlier today, We were extremely saddened to learn of Dominic’s passing and send our deepest condolences to his family and friends. He was an esteemed journalist and an integral part of our news coverage throughout the Middle East.”
Both fans and coworkers took to social media to brief eulogize Di-Natale’s passing.
So sad to hear Fox’s Dominic Di-Natale has died. A great reporter, who off-air was always trying to help US troops. I will miss him.
