Man, I just heard about it. Really sad. I didn't really know who he was but condolences to his family & friends. I'm hoping it was accidental too, another suicide would be too horrible.

Just as the men's shows are about to start in Milano comes tragic news: French male model and catwalk regular Tom Nicon, 22, was found dead after falling from his window in his Milanese apartment. Nicon, who has posed for everyone from Costume National to Louis Vuitton and Gareth Pugh, had just returned from a Versace fitting and was scheduled to visit his agency that afternoon. Insiders are wondering if it was suicide, but the notoriously slow and corrupt Italian police have not made a statement. Stay tuned. R.I.P. Tom.

Even though we don't have an official confirmation, this is so sad, he was so young

May he RIP.
However, why are people already blaming the fashion industry for his death?
No one knows yet if it was a suicide or an accident. And besides, for all you know, he could've been secretly suffering from depression unrelated to his job as a model. Usually by the time a depressed person commits suicide, they've gone through a years-long struggle with the condition.

Burberry shows won't be the same without you Tom. You seemed like a genuinely kind person with a great sense of humor. Your presence will be missed.
Rest in peace Tom.

RIP Tom.

If it was suicide, it's just further proof that depression does not discriminate. You can be living what looks to be the ideal life to some on the outside, but suffering in silence. I wish people would discuss depression more, it's one of the main causes of death for the younger generation and yet there is still such taboo around the subject.

Ok, so I've had a really hard time coping with this. He was one of the only models I've been able to meet. He was so sweet, funny, charming, and shy in the cutest way possible. Its been tearing me up all day to the point where I can't get anything done. The reality of the situation keeps hitting me over and over. I can't imagine how his family and friends are feeling right now. Its so sad. I just wish this never happened. It doesn't seem real. I don't want it to be! RIP Tom

This is so sad. Although I didn't know him much before, may he rest in peace.
