Thats betweem that person and God. Maybe the person was ill or not thinking clear at the time? There is allways two sides to a story. But also there is allways a better way than suicide, just gotta pull up your boot straps and dig in deeper
Everyone has a chance to redemption... only the blind catholic church (whom are a poor representation of God in itself ) believe in permanent condemnation. All of humanity has equal chance to enter heaven, even the murderers, rapists.. the worst of people that we perceive may still have a chance to open their heart and plead forgiveness. It is extremely closed- minded to think that God would write us off so easily.
Depending on circumstances. King Saul fell on his sword. But he did that in God's name. Saul died a martyr's death in God's honor, and despite his transgressions he was surely rewarded in Olam Ha'ba. After all, Samuel told him he would be with him, 1 Samuel 28:19. The Torah commands us to be careful about our lives - Deuteronomy 4:15; 2:4; 4:9. But some circumstances are such that it is better to die than to stay alive, and the Torah allows for those. For example, if given the option between worshipping an idol or killing yourself, the latter should be preferred.
Suicide is essentially "self-murder" and murder is a sin, outlawed in the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:13). Having said that, we must add that murder, suicide, or any other sin is not the deciding factor regarding salvation. A person's eternal security is determined by, and only by, their relationship to Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9). If a person who is unsaved commits suicide, they have simply sent themselves to eternal punishment faster than they would have gone had they died a natural death. Regardless, they will be in hell only because they have rejected Christ, not because they have committed suicide. Read more: http://www.compellingtruth.org/Bible-suicide.html#ixzz2NMXgZ6wQ

If you have a loved one or friend who committed suicide, know that god has accepted them into heaven through divine mercy and grace. The sin lies in snuffing out what god has so lovingly created, that special and individual life god went to all the trouble to create. We are all unique and special, there not being any other person on the entire planet who is exactly like us.
