Ashley Anne Riggitano, a New York fashionista, jumped to her death from the George Washington Bridge on Wednesday, after a heated Facebook argument with her best friend.
Riggitano, 22, allegedly was on Aderall and Klonopin when she jumped into the Hudson River at 4:40 p.m. on Jan. 6, which also happened to be her birthday, the Daily Mail reported.
According the several reports, Riggitano had gotten into a Facebook fight with her good friend Alison Tinari, who allegedly wrote her a post that's being considered as a contributing factor in the suicide.
Go try to kill yourself on Xanax again, you unstable loser. Go xx yourself and never speak to me again. The fashionista left a handwritten note found in her Louis Vuitton bag on the bridge. In the note, she stated that her "friends" were never there and were only interested in gossip. She also singled out four people she wanted excluded from her funeral.
A source has identified the four as Teresa Castaldo, Beth Bassil, Victoria Van Thunen and Samantha Horneff, Fox News reported.
Van Thunen was Riggitanos business partner at Missfits, a jewelry-design business.
Reports indicate this wasn't the first time Riggitano attempted to commit suicide. Prescription drugs Adderall, used to treat ADHD, and Klonopin, an anti-panic drug, were also found in her bag.
Designer Alex Woo who employed Riggitano part-time said she appeared happy and was liked by everyone.
Sounds like the Drama Queen took it to the next level.
Coked out, drugged up, melon brained, worthless excuse for a functioning human being, takes life - no one cares.
How ‘bout that “social media” thing?
Dharun Ravi was not so lucky.
Oh man, we need to ban guns altogether.
Yep. It’s not her fault just her “gossipy” friends. (Sarc) Did the press really need to print the names excluded from the funeral? How does that help anything? Why mess up their lives?
pretty girl. sad, not to have any real friends or any kind of real life. I am guessing she had some mental issues of somekind.
I jumped to the conclusion that the editor is not on his game.
My very first thought, too, but I was unable to remember the name involved with the other case. Good job.
We need to ban bridges over three feet high, and have a national conversation about the need for rivers over four feet deep.
Wanna guess who she voted for?
When people move away from spiritual teachings and become exclusively enmeshed with the “world,” stuff like this is bound to occur. A spiritual ground of some kind would’ve helped to place a critical check on her, before that fatal jump.
Great. Now I’m going to have the “George Wshington Bridge” song stuck in my head all day.
I think it must have been the Louis Vuitton bag or the press would not have singled it out as it did.
Klonopin is nasty stuff.
Well, apparently she was happy and well-liked only part-time.
