That sounds odd. Who kills them self at someone else’s home?
Seriously, that is a really personal act. That was what was so suspicious at the Phil Spector deal. Yeah, some lady that you never met kills herself in your house, first time she ever went there?
Something is going on. And if cops agree it’s suicide, yeah... something is going on.
Somebody wants Clint Rodenberry to be investigated and destroyed. I’m thinking it’s the dead lady who wanted that to happen. But, of course, it could be someone else.
Maybe she had been in a close personal relationship - one that ended - with the homeowner.
While I don't like “conspiracy theories” this one does not smell right. First, most women don't use a gun to kill themselves; second, she is the fifth legislator to die in the last few months; third, she is in the home of another attorney friend who is married and not her own home.
I hold a masters degree in criminal justice, specialty is crime scene investigations. I can't make a determination or make any conclusions since I have not seen the crime scene or any pictures personally. The reported facts just seems really odd to me. It may be prudent to check on what legislation she was working on and compare that with any other legislator who has died recently to see if their is a connection.
Tragic, very tragic.
A couple of other threads if anyone is interested in the comments thereon. Neither have a lot of info as apparently is still under wraps.
Has anyone seen Hillary! lately?
Setting an example to Washington for an honorable exit.
What the heck is going on here?
The other four were of natural causes or so I read in another article.
Not much information about her. Second term in that slot, ran unopposed.
Spurned lovers often kill themselves at the home or workplace of the ones who rejected them.
I'm going to guess there is more to this particular story>
Oops, here’s a bit more from Wiki.
She was a Republican. And she seems to have been a well-established, upper-class gentlewoman: “Upshaw was a member of the American Bar Association, American Legislative Exchange Council, Colonial Dames, Daughters of the American Revolution, Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce, Gulfport Yacht Club, Harrison County Bar Association, and the Mississippi Bar Association.”
The other four all died of natural causes.
Two died of heart attacks and two died of complications from long illnesses. Two were 64, one was 68, one was 76. Three were men, one was a woman.
This latest deceased legislator was a white Republican woman who shot herself at the age of 53.
See post 16.
In many cases, someone who had a personal relationship with the someone else, perhaps clandestinely, that didn't go so well, and as a result is perfectly happy to mess up that person's life as well.
A parting gift, as it were.
It may have been a suicide, never hurts to check all the facts. Like I posted earlier, “check” first.
