TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) A woman in Taiwan killed herself by inhaling poisonous fumes while chatting with friends on Facebook and none of them alerted authorities, police said Tuesday.
Claire Lin killed herself on her 31st birthday, March 18, and family members who reported her suicide were unaware of the Facebook conversations that accompanied it, Taipei police officer Hsieh Ku-ming said.
Lin's last Facebook entries show her chatting with nine friends, alerting them to her gradual asphyxiation. One picture uploaded from her mobile phone depicts a charcoal barbecue burning next to two stuffed animals. Another shows the room filled with fumes.
One friend identified as Chung Hsin, told Lin, "Be calm, open the window, put out the charcoal fire, please, I beg you."
Lin replied: "The fumes are suffocating. They fill my eyes with tears. Don't write me anymore."
A few of the Facebook friends chatting with her tried to stop her and track her down on their own, but none called police. Chung did not respond to attempts to reach him for comment.
Lin's last words, in Chinese, were: "Too late. My room is filled with fumes. I just posted another picture. Even while I'm dying, I still want FB (Facebook). Must be FB poison. Haha."

Unless she texted “Okay, I’m dead. Read Ya Later”
How would they know she died?
OK.... some people really are that stoud I guess.
But probably what really drove her over the edge was when she saw below the quote, "41 People Like This"
Source, please ?
Looks like she got the last laugh out of this...
stupid, meant stupid.
I’m going back to bed.
(& /sm@rt@ss ;-)
They were probably sick of her re-posting "stupid urban legends", forwarding "chain messages" and spamming blurry, out of focus, pictures of her cat.
I know the feeling, I've been there...
