Jumper left note: White House Suicide Note

Jumper left note: White House Suicide Note, In court, Joseph Caputo turned to his mother and mouthed the words “I love you.” He was shackled, but wearing the same clothing he had on Thanksgiving when he jumped the White House fence, reports WUSA-TV.
The distraught mother of White House fence jumper Caputo said nothing as she left D.C. Superior Court surrounded by reporters.
Caputo jumped the fence with an American flag draped over him like a cape and a binder of papers between his teeth. He immediately put his hands up and then lay on the ground, as the Secret Service moved in. Tourists found this latest breach of security disturbing.
“And for somebody to actually get this close to our President, it’s very alarming to me,” Stan Williams of Little Rock, Arkansas said.
“Pretty incredible. Considering all the Secret Service and police that are out here,” Leslie McSoley of South Dennis, MA. added.
Charging documents reveal that while in custody, Caputo told agents, “l love my country” and “l knew I would be locked up.” Officers confiscated an American Flag, a flash drive in the form of a ‘Captain America’ shield, a pocket guide to the Constitution, and weightlifting gloves.
The documents also reveal Caputo left behind a suicide note in the Virginia home where he’d been staying. It said, “Death is a natural part of life.” Caputo’s mother also provided officers with a “Last Will and Testament” prepared by Caputo and an audio message in which he tells his mother “something will happen and he may or may not be able to see her again.”
Caputo was released to the custody of the Secret Service and will undergo a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital.
In 2011, when Caputo was a high school senior, a Connecticut newspaper published a glowing feature on his success, despite having Asperger’s syndrome. At the time, Caputo said he dreamed of studying study criminal justice. Now, he’s learning about it firsthand. He’ll be in federal court on Monday.
