Gary Speed was a decorated soccer player who continued working in the sport after he retired by becoming a manager. However, the demanding position put a strain on his relationship with wife Louise. In late November 2011, Speed sent a text message to his wife suggesting he might commit suicide but he quickly dismissed the thought in a subsequent text. However, days later he would follow through. After attending a dinner party close to their home, Speed and his wife got into an argument. The next morning she found her husband and father of their two teenage sons hanging in the garage.
