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.
That's what I was thinking. "If you don't take me back, I'll kill myself"
white guilt over the disparity.
I think Steed and Mrs. Peel should be asked to investigate.
That's if it's from despair. She may have been angry and determined to send a message to a specific person. Assuming she was going to go to somebody's house to do that she probably wasn't going to down sleeping pills and wait to drift off. If she actually was going to show up at his house, she'd want to do something sudden, violent, and potent emotionally to get the message through.
Jessica Upshaw OPPOSED AGENDA 21... Something is rotten in the State of Mississippi... those who are not aware of Tom DeWeese search him out and at least listen to him... no, he does NOT wear a tin foil hat... draw your own conclusions... Jessica may have done herself in... however so did Vince Foster...please don’t fall asleep on this.. find out what ICLEI is and if it is in your community... check it out...
I don’t normally buy into conspiracy theories, AT ALL.
But earlier today there was a poster called “patriot76” over on another forum who said that an ex-coworker had told him that he (the ex-coworker) had talked to a homeless lady who smokes crack on one of the street corners in Boston, and she used to have a son who lived in Mississippi, except now she thinks he’s in a gutter in New Orleans.
So the crack lady said that Jessica Upshaw was just about to introduce a bill creating a commission to investigate Eric Holder for accepting a $43.5 million bribe from the North Koreans, and Clint Rotenberry was supposed to head up the commission.
She also said something about Jimmy Hoffa having returned for two weeks last year, and having given her the recipe for a revolutionary new cola drink. But that doesn’t really have anything to do with Upshaw.
Anyway, I don’t know. The whole story sounded pretty darn convincing to me.
Patriot76’s post has since disappeared from the web. So I tried pm’ing him over on the other forum, but I haven’t been able to get any answer.
Hang on... someone banging on the door. BRB...
Without knowing this women’s character or her mental state prior to her death, this could very well be true.
