A former Heaven's Gate member who tried to kill himself by swallowing the same drug used in the cult's mass suicide has persuaded a judge to release him from a psychiatric facility. Charles Humphrey told KNSD-TV on Wednesday that his opportunity to join the "next level" had passed and that he plans to write a book and go on the speaking circuit. "That activity [suicide] is not an option for me at this point," he said.

One former member of the Heaven's Gate cult was found dead Tuesday and another was near death in an apparent double suicide attempt in a motel just miles from the Rancho Santa Fe mansion where 39 members of the cult ended their lives in March. Like the cultists who died in the mass suicide, the two men found in the room at the Holiday Inn Express had sent upbeat tapes to friends and family members happily expressing their wish to join the other cultists in the "next level," officials said.
