Anyone else skeptical about this one?
Isn’t this type of suicide like the one where you shoot yourself in the head twice?
Kind of odd that she climbed into the trunk of her car without anyone noticing.. Perhaps she has a fold down rear seat and could’ve entered that way just to stay out of view. I would be curious to know exactly what her injuries were.. Perhaps a change of heart as she was running out of air? Does that vehicle have an emergency release handle on the inside of the trunk?
Like poor Chuckles the clown. Born in a trunk, died in a trunk.
Yeah, it is really odd.
Most car trunks are not air tight.
But they do get very hot.
And most built these days have some form of emergency “get me outta here”.
Very very sad. No one with post partum. PSYCHOSIS. Should be going to a job, or even unsupervised.
However, did she really kill herself? It’s hard to put yourself in your own trunk.
Then again, if she really wanted to die it would be a way to ensure you couldn’t save yourself. No cell phones, just let the pills do their thing and you can’t back out...
A mom just returning to work after having her baby? Women’s liberation was GREAT, wasn’t it?!!!!!! That is an extremely depressing and stressful time for a woman.. Too late to go back in time though.
Doesn’t pass the smell test.
I'll bet she was being treated with SSRIs !
Another victim of a doctor turned drug pusher for big pharma. This woman was an engineer and probably the bread winner. Too much pressure and she couldn’t handle being separated from her new baby.
“No one with post partum. PSYCHOSIS. Should be going to a job, or even unsupervised.”
Yes, really, or any kind of untreated psychosis. I mean maybe that is just a bad word choice (are these people immigrants? is their English very poor?), but psychosis means a pretty complete detachment from reality.
And yes, I can see getting into your trunk and killing yourself, if you’re psychotic, but what about those “injuries”?
I feel like the husband didn’t do it, but that’s not to say there wasn’t another actor involved.
It's about as hard as getting into bed. You climb in, you pull down the lid, it latches. With the heat, it would not be a pleasant way to go.
Well, if she did do it, to lessen her chances of survival, and she had no simple unlatch button inside, she could have injured herself before her actual death, trying to escape.
“...she could have injured herself before her actual death, trying to escape.”
Good point, I hadn’t thought of that.
