His mom always felt she was living on a borrowed time

While opening up about the death of Sawyer with Larry King, his mom revealed living in a borrowed time when Sawyer was alive. 

She said she never felt on borrowed time necessarily with Sawyer but with both the twins. She always had a fear of thinking she might lose one of them for some reason, and she didn’t know why. 

The weird feeling that scared her to death started from the day she found out she was carrying twins. It was constantly nagging her until the death of Sawyer

She said she would always push it away. She didn’t know who specifically she was going to lose but always had the nagging feeling that she was going to lose one. 

Since it was always once in a while and she kind of used to push it away, she never thought of consulting the doctor to find the reason behind it. 

She thought she was overreacting. She said her son had no signs until eight days before his death. 

She also went on to reveal that the twins got offers to act, but neither of them was interested in acting, given the reason that it was not what they wanted to do. 

She said Sawyer wanted to teach while Sullivan wanted to be a helicopter pilot. Besides that, she added the death of her one son had terrified her that she fears losing others so that she is taking Sullivan to counsel. 

Sullivan, at the time, was sad and angry for a good bit but is doing well, says Elizabeth. According to her, she knew her son Sawyer was dealing with some sort of problem only eight days before his death; otherwise, he had no signs before. 

Eight days before his death, while visiting the house that Sawyer and Sullivan had bought, she noticed Sawyer looked disheveled. 

He was wandering from one room to another aimlessly, and she could not figure out what was going on. Sullivan also confessed to her not knowing anything till later that night, although he noticed his brother looked different. 

When she asked him if anything was bothering him, Sawyer rubbed his head and constantly kept on saying he didn’t know. 

What he said to her was at the time was, that California makes you think that isn’t true, and he needs to get out of there. 

He had said that he felt like his friends didn’t like him, and they didn’t want him around, and they were covering their anger with him in laughter. 

By the time she realized what he had meant, he was already in the middle of the trip to Texas

Elizabeth and her husband were concerned but somewhat relieved that their son didn’t feel suicidal as they have asked him between those eight days and he had said “No.” But unfortunately, he didn’t return from Texas

Sullivan and his dad were in the house on the day Sawyer took his life. Sullivan was in the shower when his brother took his life on the balcony.
