In the latest account of the Virginia Quarterly Review tragedy, VQR contributor Tom Bissell writes in The New York Observer that managing editor Kevin Morrissey's suicide note didn't blame editor Ted Genoways for Morrissey's action. But in the e-mail Genoways sent to contributors and friends explaining the circumstances of Morrissey's death on July 30 (which Bissell amply mentions), it says—according to Morrissey's family—that the suicide note did indeed fault Genoways. I don't know if anyone aside from Morrissey's family has seen the missive to provide independent corroboration, but if Bissell has, he might clarify.
Subsequently, Morrissey's sister Maria has said the suicide note did not blame Genoways, but if that's the case, why did Genoways say in his email that the family told him it did cite him?
A redacted image of the putative suicide note is here.
Below is the e-mail Genoways sent in full.
