Nick Santino All My Children Suicide Shocks Soap, CW Fans

Nick Santino All My Children Suicide Shocks Soap, CW Fans

LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Nick Santino’s All My Children character won fan praise in 2001. Nick Santino (photos below) later joined Guiding Light before moving on to Gossip Girl (CW) and Royal Pains last year. But Santino had another personal pain not disclosed to fans. When Santino rescued a pit bull dog from a local kennel several years ago, Santino told fans and news that the dog in fact rescued him.

Nick Santino played club owner on Royal Pains for two episodes last year. He previously played the character of a hedge fund guru on Gossip Girl on the CW that same year.

But soap opera fans best know Nick Santino from his 2001 and 2002 roles. He played the character Officer Anton on All My Children. He played the Officer on non-consecutive episodes over a three year period starting in 1998. Santino later made news with the six-episode arch as Father Soto on Guiding Light in 2002. He even appeared in the All My Children 25th Anniversary special.

While Santino’s pictures showed him a dynamic outdoor enthusiast, he hadn’t revealed his private struggles with his apartment building. In New York, his landlord had received complaints of Santino’s dog allegedly barking. Some neighbors contend the allegations were false.

Finally, Santino was told allegedly by his management to euthanize the dog or move out. Santino decided to euthanize his beloved companion. On Tuesday, Nick’s 47th birthday, Santino euthanized the pit bull he called Rocco. Rocco was perfectly healthy.

While the building’s management company has yet to comment to news if the request was in fact made, Santino hours later feared he had made the wrong decision in euthanizing Rocco.

Santino wrote a suicide note to his friend the next day. On Wednesday Santino told his friend that he was going to kill himself for wrongfully, in his mind, killing Rocco. “Today I betrayed my best friend and put down my best friend,” Santino wrote in his suicide note. “Rocco trusted me and I failed him. He didn’t deserve this.”

Santino’s family is outraged at the management company. The building and its company have yet to be identified by local news. Nick and Rocco are set to be creamated and buried together. Funeral arrangements have not been announced.

New York’s housing authority has yet to comment about the matter. Local authorities have yet to indicate to news if they will investigate any possible housing violations with the euthanizing request by the management company.

    So, he killed his own perfectly healthy dog and then killed himself, and his family is blaming the hotel management. Wow, seriously? If he was having so many issues, why didn’t he move to a dog friendly apartment or find a better home for his dog. Obviously he had other issues.

    I am heartbroken at his loss and sorry for the cold words of someone who obviously doesn’t understand
    1) how much a dog can actually mean to someone
    2) how hard it is to move in New York… where he needed to be for his career
    3) what it means to be kind and a decent human being.

    I will agree he is ultimately to blame for taking his own life but NOBODY has any right to tell you to euthanize your animal !! They should be brought up on charges and I’ll pray they are!

    The cold cruel indifference this woman above “ana” shows in comment above is best summed up with her choice of opening word: “So”. I was put through similar mental torture with my condo board and the manager and remember being so very depressed by the sheer absurdity of the way adults mentally torture each other. I imagine he tried to tell himself to be practical, convinced himself the animal was “just a dog” maybe he got angry underneath it all, maybe he had a few beers too many so was thinking too emotionally….anyone who loves their dog knows how manlike they can become..I could see how he would have been haunted by his dumb decision to euthanize for rest of his life…But it’s true that whoever spelled out his options for him in this way? Should be slapped across their heartless face….and ya sued for enough to haunt them for years to come…As a man started to tell me about this at our dog walk yesterday, I finished the shocking ending for him! Because I could feel what they did to him, how they tortured him….I was flat broke around 2003 when they started fining us something like $40 per day I kept the dog….it caused such a riff between me and my family, step father specifically, that we never spoke to each other again an then he dies in 07….I still have my dog but I had to fight and go thru hell…40 something yrs old, a $150.000 condo and full grown adults are arguing over keep a 55 pound mut….thats our society-what its turned into…Im heart broken by is story.

    This is totally heartbreaking. I am a GSD lover & after the death of not 1 but 2 husbands & the lost of my house, a disability that put me on SSDI, a sister who “changed her mind” about letting me stay w/her cuz “she has 2 much on her plate” 3 days b4 I had 2 give up my house. My GSD went thru it all w/me including living in my car for almost a week b4 a friend took us in. I loved this dog like I gave birth 2 him & because he was considered an aggressive breed, I had trouble finding a place to stay. People asked why not just give him up, I couldn’t..he was truly a faithful companion, thus why I chose 2 be homeless for a few days. I lost him to a kidney infection and a part of my heart died w/him….in some ways I have no emotion left, but I do feel pity for people who never have experienced the unconditional love of a dog who can be so flippant in judgement of those who have. My heart goes out to the family of NICK SANTINO & I pray that those who harassed him for his so called aggressive breed have trouble sleeping @ night.
