This is truly terrible news and my heartfelt sympathies go to his poor mother. By all accounts, the prince was an intelligent and hard working man, and the world will be the poorer for his loss.

Depression,which many suicides suffer from, is a terrifying illness. My hopes for their peace of mind and prayers go to his family and friends who will be so horribly affected by this ghastly outcome.

According to "El Mundo" he wasn't married.

It is with immense grief that we would like to inform our compatriots of the passing away of Prince Alireza Pahlavi.

Like millions of young Iranians, he too was deeply disturbed by all the ills fallen upon his beloved homeland, as well as carrying the burden of losing a father and a sister in his young life.

Although he struggled for years to overcome his sorrow, he finally succumbed, and during the night of the 4th of January 2011, in his Boston residence, took his own life, plunging his family and friends into great sorrow.

Once again, we are joined with mothers, father and relatives of so many victims of these dark times for our country.

Reza Pahlavi, Farah Pahlavi, Farahnaz Pahlavi, Yasmine Pahlavi, Noor Pahlavi, Iman Pahlavi and Farah Pahlavi

What utterly sad deed,what pain he must have been in,this young,beautifull,talented,witty and loving son of the Empress Farah.
What immens grief for mother and family,to loose a second child in a fashion most desperate of all.I am really shocked,my heart
and thoughts go out to the Imperial Family and to all who knew Ali Reza and loved him.May Allah grant you a place next to Him.

Prince Alireza Passes Away

I am really shocked to hear this news...My thoughts and prayers are with Farah Diba and her family..

Wonder if this is one of the reasons why Farah did not appear that often in public last year..

Unhappy

So so sad. I first heard the news at work and thought at first it was some kind of horrible hoax. I just couldn't imagine Her Majesty having to go through the loss of another child again. It's heartbreaking-my sympathies to the family.

How awful. The headline on Yahoo said "son of former Iranian shah found dead" and I said "Please dont let it be suicide". I can't imagine what Empress Farah and her family or going through, having to endure this for a second time. I hope he can finally find peace now.
