In 2009, Houma resident Titus P. Savoie Jr. said he decided to end his life.
“I saw in the distance a big butane truck coming down the road at a fast speed and decided right then and there I was going to end everyone’s hurts by simply making that one leap of fate,” Savoie said. “As the truck got closer, I positioned myself to jump out in front of it. As it approached, just as I was about to leap, I changed my mind. I remember getting so mad at myself for backing out and was mad for even thinking about doing something so dumb.”

Guthrie, who recently signed a new contract with Today, could be bumped or could even take Tamron Hall’s slot after she quit over Kelly’s arrival, sources told Page Six. Hall’s top rated morning show Today’s Take was cancelled to make a slot for Kelly.
