RAW: Embattled Former MegaChurch Pastor Commits Suicide

Friends and church members took to social media Wednesday to remember former Summit Church pastor Isaac Hunter as a powerful speaker who inspired others with the power of his Christian faith, even as he struggled with his inner demons.

Hunter, 36, shot himself to death Tuesday morning at his apartment off State Road 434 in Altamonte Springs.

He first sent a text to his brother in which he mentioned suicide, according to Altamonte Springs police.

Officers responded to the Vineridge Run apartment complex about 10:45 a.m. after Hunter’s brother, alarmed by the text, called police.

They found Hunter dead of “what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” said Rob Pelton, a department spokesman. “It’s being investigated as a suicide.”
