A body found floating in the Mississippi River in St. Paul on Monday is believed to be that of a Minnesota man who served as managing editor of the Minneapolis-St. Paul gay magazine Lavender, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Tim Lee, 34, had been missing since October 28. It appears he committed suicide, according to Lee's partner, Richard Iglewski. Lee, who had suffered from bipolar disorder, was hospitalized for depression just days before his disappearance. "The way we're coping right now is knowing that Tim, who had been suffering with a very bad bipolar disease, is OK now," Iglewski said. "Our prayers and our thoughts are that he has some peace at this point."
In addition to his post at Lavender, Lee was a founder of the Outward Spiral Theatre Co., where he codirected a production of Corpus Christi. "We're saddened by the loss of our coworker," said Stephen Rocheford, president and CEO of Lavender Media Inc., which publishes Lavender. "Our hearts go out to his friends and family."
