My 600-lb Life star L.B. Bonner, 31, sounded incoherent in 911 call before death


Recordings of two 911 calls provide chilling insight into the hours before a South Carolina man who starred in TLC’s My 600-LB Life was found dead.

A 911 call from a man identified as James L. B. Bonner, 31, was difficult to understand for the dispatcher and eventually led to an ended phone call, WIS-TV reports.  

And when the dispatcher tried to call back, the call went straight to voicemail. 

Karen Bonner, the man’s mother, would be the second call found to have been made to the police. 

‘He’s been sending things out today about he loves us and he’s sorry, you know, and that he’s going to do something stupid,’ she said. 

911 calls released revealed that James L.B. Conner was incoherent when talking to dispatchers, prior to his death. His mother, Karen Bonner, also called the police and was worried that her sound sounded like he was suicidal
