    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Olympic silver medalist Jeret "Speedy" Peterson was found dead in a remote canyon in Utah in what police are calling a suicide.

    Peterson, a freestyle skier who patented the so-called "Hurricane" and took second place in aerials at the Vancouver Games with it, called 911 before shooting himself, police said. The 29-year-old had been cited for drunken driving Friday in Hailey, Idaho and had pleaded not guilty.

    Men's Journal published the definitive piece on him last year.

    Very, very sad indeed.
