Thomas Lynn Bradford

Thomas Lynn Bradford (died February 6, 1921) of Detroit, Michigan, is most famous for committing suicide in attempt to ascertain the existence of an afterlife and communicate that information to a living accomplice, Ruth Doran.[1] On 6 February 1921, Bradford sealed his apartment in Detroit, Michigan, blew out the pilot on his heater, and turned on the gas, which was successful in killing him.[2][3]

Some weeks earlier, Bradford had sought a fellow spiritualist in a newspaper ad. Doran responded. The two agreed "that there was but one way to solve the mystery - two minds properly attuned, one of which must shed its earthly mantle".[4] The New York Times ran a follow-up under the headline "Dead Spiritualist Silent."[5]
