(KTLA, Local): SoCal Pastor Warren's Commits Homocide (=Self, Suicide)


LAKE FOREST, Calif. (KTLA) — The youngest son of a Southern California super church’s pastor committed suicide, according to a statement released by the pastor and his church.

Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Valley Community Church in Lake Forest, released a statement to the church, saying his 27-year-old son Matthew took his own life after a battle with depression.

The statement said that the suicide followed an evening spent with Warren and his wife, Kay, who live in Mission Viejo.

“Kay and I’ve been privileged to hold your hands as you faced a crisis or loss,” the statement said. “Today we need your prayers for us.”

Orange County sheriff’s officials say Matthew Warren died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
