FULL TITLE: Girl, 16, found dead on train tracks next to her best friend, 18, was 'in a dark place' after break-up with her girlfriend

Two teenagers have been found dead side-by-side on train tracks after one of the girls was 'in a dark place' following a recent break up with her long-time girlfriend.

Arielle Troutman, 16, and Hannah Rigley, 18, were found dead beneath a train on the edge of the McAlpine Creek Greenway in Charlotte, North Carolina early on Sunday morning.

The train driver had seen them apparently sleeping on the track, sounded his bell and pulled his emergency brake, but could not stop the train in time, and they were found dead beneath it.

But an autopsy is still pending, with authorities questioning whether the girls actually died of drugs overdoses or sudden death syndrome before they were hit.

Arielle's father, Jamie Troutman, has told the Charlotte Observer that he has yet to hear the cause of death from the police or the Mecklenburg Medical Examiner’s Office.

Yet he told the paper he is certain that his daughter, whom he described as 'goth-y', had been struggling with a recent break up.

Somehow I don’t believe they were sleeping.

“Sudden Death Syndrome (SDS) is an umbrella term used for the many different causes of cardiac arrest in young people. CRY provides medical information on the most common causes of unexpected sudden cardiac death in the young (aged 35 and under). These conditions include thickening or abnormal structure of the heart muscle and irregularities of the electrical impulses that upset the natural rhythm of the heart.”

But two at once sounds pretty ridiculous.

OMG Hannah is sooooo pretty (was).. Weird how the title of this article doesn’t seem to care about the 18 year old.

Tragic: Arielle Troutman, left, and her best friend, Hanna Rigley, right, were found dead beneath a train

I wonder why only one is newsworthy?

Ah.

Original title:

Girl, 16, found dead on train tracks next to her best friend, 18, was ‘in a dark place’ after break-up with her girlfriend

Sounds like the 18 year old survived. A better headline might have been:

Teenaged Girls found dead on train tracks, one was ‘in a dark place’ after break-up with her girlfriend

sudden death syndrome???

That's a pretty accurate description of what happens when a train runs over someone.

At some point they will look at text messages, chats, emails and figure out what actually happened.

I just have zero patience for “teenage angst”. Get over your pathetic sniveling selves already. You’re just not that important. You didn’t invent love or hate and you’re not the first one to experience a little disappointment. Stick around... your little problems will look pretty small, and sooner than you think.

no matter how people want to explain it, multiple piercings and tatoos and outlandish anti social dress and behavior are very very bad....it says something about you and how you feel about others.....that you don't have any sense of bonding with your fellow man...that you don't care about your fellow man....

homosexuality....goths...drugs...promiscuity.....

it all comes down to the Bible and the 10 commandments and down to everything our great grandparents believed...you know, those awful, white, Christian narrow minded people who pulled civilization thru some mighty tough times...depression and war and famine...

their ideas were not so cockamamie afterall...

I think what they mean is, if they were conscious, they probably were “scared to death” before they were hit by the train. I imagine they would only mention that if they knew it was a common occurrence for people that got hit by trains.

Sometime articles from the Mail Online are so long I can’t post them at the top but have to crop them. I always post the ‘full title’ at the beginning of each article in the main part.

Who was the “girlfriend?” Was it the 18 year old, or a 3rd person?

When your kids start this Goth crap and piercings it is time to get themn to a shrink.

A good spanking earlier on may have helped.

No, no.. My point is that the title leads you to believe that only the 16 year old is dead.

I think it also shows that you don’t love yourself, so the love your neighbor as thyself is lost.

I'm going to go out on a limb, here, and speculate that it's because the one that was newsworthy was only so because she just broke up with her "girlfriend."

Ayup. A few movies dealt with nose rings/lip rings being pulled through the skin as a way of getting someone to talk (The Punisher - 2004) comes to mind.

Don't. You'll likely catch something. I always think crusty buggers and dripping snot.

Yeah, let's go with a double sudden death syndrome for two young people in the middle of a train track. I don't know who has less sense, the girls or the coroner.

Since when was a breakup grounds for ending your own life? I had like, a dozen breakups, and plenty more single or two- dates that never turned into a long-term relationship before I found my wife, as an approaching-30 man. Seriously, if people want to end their lives for failed teen relationships, that’s not a good sign, and unless they get over that extreme impression, not a good attitude to carry into adult life. Natural selection, in an unfortunate, but very real way, takes it’s toll.

Then there’s the sexuality issue, but my lack of condoning same-sex sex acts should be so obvious and repeated on these boards, that I don’t feel I have much of a need to go there.

You’d be amazed at how many parents leave kids in situations where the kid is alone with an older individual sometimes. I look at some kids hanging out at an older kids’ place, and figure, wow, I wonder why some parents are clueless as to how their kid got into porn, or drugs, or sex, or possibly even homosexual relationships?!!

With a child along the way, I am going to have a hard time to be willing to let my kid be as unsupervised as some parents allow their kids to be...

the girls actually died of drugs overdoses or sudden death syndrome

Charge the railroad with MURDER!!! /s

In Maine, a few years ago, 2 girls were sunbathing on a railroad bridge and a train hit them killing 1 and cutting the legs off the other.

The parents sued the Railroad, because the railroad should have known kids would be sunbathing on the bridge.

I bet the parents will be sueing the railroad...
