Because adoption is a known risk for suicide, the suicide death of celebrity Marie Osmond was first reported on this blog here, and updated here reporting about Marie performing even before he was laid to rest, and again here about his natural mother being at his funeral.

Now, yet more about this troubled teenaged talented musician and high school senior who had been enrolled in the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles. One of Michael's close friends said he "was happy" and "loved."

In 2008 Marie left her husband Brian Blosil and the home they had raised their eight children in.

Michael Bryan - NOT Blosil as all earlier reports listed him -  died from "multiple blunt trauma" after her jumped from the eighth-floor balcony of his Los Angeles apartment building on Feb. 26, leaving a suicide note that "outlined his unhappiness with his life."

There were no drugs in his system according to coroner's reports. Michael had been in rehab for substance abuse in 2007.  

The 18-year-old suffered from depression and had attempted suicide three times by trying to hang himself according to one of his best friends, Ruthann Clawson.  Despite this, a family friend told People: "Marie knew Michael was troubled, but I don't think she ever thought he would take his life."

In the months leading up to his death, he legally changed his last name from Blosil to Bryan due to an estranged relationship with his adoptive father. [NY Daily News] People reported that he and his adopted father "had not spoken for months." His death certificate will recognize his name as he chose it: Michael Bryan.

Osmond family members and sources would not discuss in detail the problems between Michael and his father, and Blosil declined to comment to PEOPLE on his son's death.

May his tortued soul rest in peace. He is memoriaized at TwiceLost.org...where you can add your loved ones or friends, separaretd by adoption and passed...
