News is reaching us that Chicago based guitarist/studio engineer Jamie Duffy passed away yesterday 21st June 2012.
The news was first broken by Fronline Assembly’s Twitter page – apparently Duffy took his own life.

Further details to follow.
Update: It seems Duffy made public his suicdal intentions – he posted a message on his Twitter account ‘this is how the end begins’ along with a hyperlink. The link led followers to a rather chilling image of three medicine containers on a plate, thier contents – a large ammount of blue coloured tablets.
There is nothing confirmed from traditional news outlets, however Martin Atkins (PIL, Ministry) has posted his condolences online.
