Logan Steinwede's suicide just a month after his 20th birthday has shattered ... trends now
The suicide of a young surfer who died just a month after celebrating his 20th birthday has shattered the hearts of his large family, which includes a TV personality uncle, a motivational speaker father and footy star stepfather, Kieran Foran.
Logan Steinwede, who had dreamed of becoming a professional surfer since he was a young boy, was discovered by his grandparents on Monday morning.
His uncle, parenting expert and TV host Dr Justin Coulson, announced his death on Tuesday in a heartbreaking, 900-word post on social media.
'Logan was staying at my parents house the night he took his life. My mum and dad – his Nan and Pop – found him on Monday morning,' wrote Dr Coulson.
'Too late to help. Too late to do anything except scream "No".

'Too late for him to hear them as they cried his name over and over again: "Logan! Logan! Logan! Logan!" "No, no, no, no, no!!!!".'
Logan's mother, Karina - who is Dr Coulson's sister - was in Melbourne for a celebratory weekend with her husband - and Logan's stepfather - the Gold Coast Titans halfback Kieran Foran, when she heard the devastating news.
Karina, who works as a hairdresser and fitness instructor, shared a video on Tuesday of her and her late son Logan arm-in-arm on a trail walk in June this year.
Dr Coulson (pictured), who hosts Channel Nine's Parental Guidance program, said his nephew was 'the most energetic and delightful kid I know. Kind. Fun. Laughing all the time'
'I would give anything my boy,' she captioned the heartbreaking post.
She later shared a picture of Logan carrying a surfboard on a beach, writing: 'My boy. My heart is not in my chest.'
Karina married Foran in 2018 after a year of dating, having divorced Logan's father, Mat, several years before.
Mat was former homeless drug addict on Australia's Most Wanted List before he met Karina and turned his life around, forging a multi-million dollar career as a real estate agent.
Logan's father, who now does motivational speaking and hosts the 31 Minute podcast, shared three sons with Karina before they split up.
Both have children from other relationships.
Mat's new wife, Tara, gave birth to a baby girl - Logan's half-sister - just six weeks ago.
Logan's father had nourished his talent for surfing from a young age, which saw him on the cusp of signing a pro-contract before his tragic death.
A profile on X, formerly Twitter, set-up in 2011 reveals Logan had a long-held ambition to pursue a professional surfing career.
'My name is Logan and I'm 8 I'm going to be a pro surfer,' the profile bio wrote.
'My goal is to be sponsored by Hurley, Red Bull & Dylan. I practice everyday with my Dad.'
