You don't mention why you two broke up ; sounds like mit was your idea and not his. It also sounds as though he is handling this particularly badly, and he could be a danger to himself and/or to you. His family ought to do all they can to persuade him to see a shrink for assessment and help. And they or you should contact whoever has been treating him for his previous suicidality, to make sure that his doc knows that he is now expressing suicidal and possibly homicidal thought. I appreciate that you are concerned for him even though not wanting to get involved. And his potwential for endangering himself and others has to be taken into acount.
You might even consider approaching the police and court to get an order forbidding him from approaching you in any way, though this doesn't necessarily stop someone who is suicidal and might still think of doing you harm.
He is not entitled to meddle in whether you and his parents talk together. If they are concerned that he may be a danger to himself or others ( and they must also be aware of his previous mental illness ) they can approach the police and better, a psychiatrist or even GP, and arrange for a compulsory admission of him to hospital for assessment and perhaps for treatment. They have a legal standing to do that, which you don't
I disagree with Vrye Denker's choice of words, though it is true that one eeds to be very cautious about expressing EITHER sympathy or antipathy, as both could encourage him to act out violently.
