Aaron Swartz Isn't the First Hacker to Commit Suicide in the Face of a Federal Investigation

Few people close to him doubt that an overzealous federal prosecution team contributed to Aaron Swartz's suicide last Saturday. And quite tragically, he wasn't the first to find himself in that position. On Monday night, BuzzFeed dug up the case of Jonathan James, a young hacker who was implicated in the largest personal identity hack in history. Not only was the same department involved in James's case as in Swartz's, but it was also the same prosecutor, Assistant United States Attorney Stephen Heymann, who pursued each of the young men.
