U.S. Olympian Skier Commits Suicide: Jeret "Speedy" Peterson, who won a silver medal at the 2010 Winter Olympics in freestyle skiing, was found dead in a remote Utah canyon after committing suicide. Peterson, 29, was cited for drunken driving Friday in Idaho. He battled alcohol and depression and was troubled by being sexually abused as a child. When he won his medal, Peterson said, "I know that a lot of people go through a lot of things in their life, and I just want them to realize they can overcome anything. There's light at the end of the tunnel and mine was silver and I love it."
