Man, I hate reading (or writing) stuff like this, it's really sad to me.

Guess that means Soundwave gets a new voice in Japan for the next movie. :-(

This saddens me, I enjoyed his work in many animes and video games. I know Tekken is never going to be the same without him voicing Heihachi Mishima. RIP Daisuke.

Yeah, sounds like it.

According to the report, a knife or some kind of sharp object was discovered near the scene as well as Gouri's last will and testament. Authorities are investigating this as a possible suicide.

according to wikipedia he did commit suicide :
On January 17, 2010 at approximately 3:00 P.M., Gōri was found lying on his stomach with blood dripping from his wrists in the middle of a Nakano, Tokyo street by a passerby, who then notified the police. Authorities from the Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department's Nakano station discovered a utility knife under his body as well as a suicide note addressed to his family in his pants pocket. Gōri's death was then ruled a suicide; he was three weeks short of his 58th birthday.

sad to hear that he's dead though i just cant picture someone else voicing heihachi and hercule
i guess they could get banjo ginga to voice heihachi again but still
