I was asking a series of yes/no questions, just not retyping them all out.

I see where you're going with that line of thinking, but asking that kind of question like this...

...will always get you a "no" answer until you hit on the exact number of days the event in question occurred. You're going to end up with something like this:

Did he put on his blue pajamas

6 days ago? No.
7 days ago? No.
8 days ago? No.
9 days ago? No.
10 days ago? No.
11 days ago? No.
12 days ago? No.
13 days ago? No.
14 days ago? No.
15 days ago? No.
16 days ago? No.
17 days ago? No.
18 days ago? No.
19 days ago? No.
20 days ago? Yes.


Odds are good you'd wear yourself out asking that way. :-b

OK, I should have asked if the amount of time between his wife death and his suicide was significant :-B , which it seems from bleach's answer is not.

my guess, which comes from putting a few things i've read in here together

plane crashes, he and his wife are maybe stranded in a raft or something, going crazy from hunger he eats part of his wife thinking its a pelican, when he then eats pelican in the restaurant he realizes thats not what he had eaten on the raft and that it was his wife he ates so he goes outside and kills himself

Nah. I'm not trying to horn in on Bleach's show here, but I will say that the day it happened isn't really relevant. What "it" is is the thing you have to figure out now.

Is another person involved besides the man and woman?

His wife was flying a small plane when it had a mid-air collision with a pelican. The plane lost control and the woman crashed and died. Struck with grief and angry at the world, the man lived to hate pelicans.
One day he decided to eat pelican out of spite. After one bite he noticed bits of plane in the pelican. This was the pelican that had killed his wife. It was mocking him from the grave. Having been bested by the pelican yet again he went into a fit of rage and went out and shot himself. :-°

For me it keeps coming back to this.
