A family from St. Louis, Missouri is currently mourning the loss of their beloved son Nathan Jatcko—a well-known musician in their local community. Previously, Jatcko, 31, was reported missing to the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department.
Friends and family members became worried when he did not show up for a gig rehearsal Friday morning, January 12th. According to CBS St. Louis, he was last seen Friday around 1:30 AM at his apartment.
His car, a 2009 white Toyota Matrix Hatchback, was also missing. The family created a Facebook page in hopes of engaging their community to help find him.
Posts received hundreds of shares, reactions, and comments—going nationwide with some shares out of state. Before Jatcko was found dead, a mass and prayer vigil was held at a local church.
The family later announced his death on the Facebook page with a heart-wrenching post.
“We are heartbroken to announce the passing of Nathan Jatcko on 1/17/2018. He took his life. He leaves behind a loving family and wide community of friends. We are at a loss for words, but appreciate all of the love, kindness, and prayers communicated to us over the past five days. Thank you.”
