Sylvia Plath's son Nicholas Hughes committed suicide.
Okay this is just sad everywhere, Sylvia Plath the famous author killed herself on February 11, 1963, by sticking her head in the oven. Her 47 year old son Nicholas Hughes, who was a marine biologist on March 16 committed suicide. What makes this so crazy, is Ted Hughes who was the husband of Plath, and who a lot think led Plath to her suicide...but that is a whole other story...he had a lover while with Plath and who he had a daughter with, her name was Assia Wevill she killed their daughter together who at the time was 4 and then she killed herself the exact same way that Sylvia Plath had. How crazy and freaky is that. He died in 1998 of a heart attack.
