Domingo Morales was not initially concerned when he got a text message from his mentor, David S. Buckel, at 5:30 a.m. Saturday, calling out sick.
Twenty-five minutes, later, Mr. Buckel sent him an email: “I apologize for leaving this world early and leaving you with some big challenges to tackle. But I have to at least try to make this planet a better place for having lived on it.”
Mr. Buckel, a nationally known civil rights lawyer and, in his final decade, a master composter directing the sprawling site at the Red Hook Community Farm in Brooklyn, set himself on fire around dawn Saturday in Prospect Park. It was, according to his suicide letter, to make a statement about people protecting the environment.

Actor Donal Logue, star of the Fox series Gotham, has sent out several heartfelt pleas for the safe return of his 16-year-old daughter Jade Logue, who is transgender, and who’s been missing since Monday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
On Tuesday, Logue reportedly tweeted that Jade was last seen at 2 p.m. in the Barclays Center/Fort Greene area of Brooklyn. The tweet, which for some reason has since been deleted, also included a description of her and of what she was wearing at the time of her disappearance, according to THR. But the actor, who’s also starred in Law and Order: SVU, ER, and Sons of Anarchy, has reached out to his daughter and/or whoever may have her several times on Twitter and on Facebook since.
