Bodyguard who protected dignitaries in Libya and Afghanistan killed himself

[*]Ian Robinson, 37, protected foreign dignitaries during dangerous assignments in Libya and Afghanistan
[*]The former army corporal was found hanged in his city centre apartment in Manchester by a neighbour
[*]His life had been on a 'downward spiral' due to his obsessions with fitness and finding love
[*]He had tried to kill himself after the break-up of his second marriage



A bodyguard who protected diplomats and aid workers in warzones committed suicide after his 'sense of bravado' left him unable to cope with his turbulent love life.
Twice married Ian Robinson, 37, protected foreign dignitaries during dangerous assignments in Libya and Afghanistan yet back in Britain he became obsessed with saving a crumbling romance.
Eventually after a row with ex-girlfriend Melissa Biagini he texted her saying that he had attempted to take his own life, messaging her: 'I’ve tried twice but chickened out'.
In the early hours of the following morning the former army corporal was found hanged in his city centre apartment in Manchester by a neighbour.
An inquest was told Robinson originally from Ashington, Northumberland, had left the army in 2006 and began working as a private security official where he protected diplomatic and foreign aid workers from the UK.
But at home his life had been on a 'downward spiral' due to his obsessions with keeping fit and finding love and he had tried to kill himself after the break-up of his second marriage.
Mother-of-one Miss Biagini from St Albans, Hertfordshire said she and Ian had separated in the summer of 2012 but they tried to rekindle their romance in January 2013.

He must have been terribly depressed to do such a thing.

Its rare seeing guys of that sort of calibre comitting suicide for women, surely he was stronger up there in his head, from the army and various tasks I would have expected him to have a lot of mental strength.
Looking at his phot he must not have had any trouble finding ladies.

Depression can range from many things, if he was a steroid user and didn't do his cycles properly, heavy steroid use can lead to depression when off the juice.
