Cain was charged again in April with violating his probation in the break-in, with court records indicating he had tested positive for marijuana twice in March. A warrant was issued because he failed to appear in court, Latah County Prosecutor Bill Thompson said.

Smith said Cain was trying to turn his life around. She said he had moved to Washington and got a full-time construction job.

Martin, the coroner, said he couldn't point to any one cause for Cain's suicide.

"When somebody is depressed and they're given issues of warrants and Facebook posts as policy of the county, you have to assume that caused him some frustration," Martin told the Moscow-Pullman Daily News. "Generally, it is not one thing that causes a person to take their life, but I'm sure it was upsetting to him. It's reasonable to ask the questions."

Both Martin and Rausch called the death a tragedy.

"That he felt necessary to end his life over facing consequences is tragic," Rausch said in his statement.
