The guy is a dj. He goes to the radio station and sets the songs to autoplay so that he has an aliby. He is in the car with his dead wife and hears his radio station start to skip. The police would know he wasnt at the station. Insteed of going to jail he decides to comit suicide.

he's now lost his alibi and would be defenseless in a long, lengthy trial in which he'd probably be convicted.

court tv would probably air it. *mutter*

The man's wife is the D.J. when he hears the music skip, he realizes she is not at work and therefore decides she must be cheating on him.

unless it's the whole "white noise" cliche... the music skips; hence it is controlled by something supernatural. the man us taken over by something external and he kills himself....he has no power over his actions. they are not his own.
