REDDIT GURU SLAYS SELF
T.I.L. internet genius AARON SWARTZ who cofounded Reddit.com committed suicide.
Swartz committed suicide at his Crown Heights home, according to law-enforcement sources and pals who ID-ed him.
Investigators are unclear if he died AFTER hanging himself or prior -- possibly ingesting drugs.
The NY medical examiner is also conducting an autopsy and toxicology tests to determine precise COD.
Obama and Hollywood celebs have answered queries on Reddit from users and the site also features a popular T.I.L. (Today I Learned) feature. He openly battled depression, blogging about his stuggle.
Swartz had plead not guilty to charges including wire fraud.
His federal trial was to begin next month. If convicted, he faced decades in prison and a fortune in fines.
