Co- Founder Aaron Swartz was found dead on Friday. The 26 year old hanged himself in his apartment where his uncle Michael Wolfe had found his body. "Aaron's uncle remembered his nephew battling depression and suicidal thoughts and had a logic in his brain that the world didn't necessarily fit in with that logic, and that was sometimes difficult."
Aaron was charged in 2011 for stealing more than 5 million articles from Massachusetts Institute of Technology as was being charged for computer fraud and wire fraud. His trial was scheduled for February.
Aaron Swartz co-founded the social news website Reddit. Reddit allows users to submit and post their content and the users rank the post to determine the content's position on the website.
