A Maywood man has died by suicide, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. This is the second death by suicide in Maywood in less than a week and at least the fourth in less than six months to take place in the village.
According to the medical examiner, authorities discovered Darin Bolden Jr., a 25-year-old African American man, at his apartment complex on the 2000 block of West St. Charles Road in Maywood on April 8. Bolden was pronounced dead at 9:16 p.m. The medical examiner ruled Bolden’s death a suicide the next day.
Bolden’s death comes just five days after a 15-year-old African American girl, who lived in Maywood and attended Proviso East High School, died by suicide. Her death was preceded by the deaths of two other 15-year-old Maywood teenagers and Proviso East students late last year.
