More quotes from Ghost

Question: Did the subway ghost commit suicide or did someone push him on the train tracks?

Joey221995

Answer: He tells Sam he was pushed and takes exception to Sam's incredulous response, adding that he didn't jump nor did he fall.

Answer: He killed himself by jumping in front of the train. During his conversation with Sam, he's offended by any suggestion that he committed suicide. Soon afterwards, he forgets who Sam is, which indicates that he has mental health issues. He then jumps in front of a train.
