I don't believe this story. I really doubt that she killed herself. What was the boyfriend's role in this when the police found him there???

"including headache, cough, pain and anti-anxiety meds" If you are sick and have a cold, that sounds about right to me. The whole plastic bag over the head thing is pretty fishy to me. I'm not buying it's a suicide.....

I met her grandfather recently. The family is broken-hearted. This can't bring any peace to them. God help them all. So promising a life. I'm certain her family will look into all they are told and given. So sad!

A permanent solution to a temporary problem, I have no sympathy for anyone who kills themself! I worked in a crematorium for 15 years and met the families of these people who still go to the grave 30 years later to visit and cry wishing they could have done something........a very selfish act suicide.

I don't believe this. A person can't suffocate themselves-- as soon as CO2 builds up the autonomic panic response sets in and the person will do anything within their power to breath. Unless she was unconscious from the meds or otherwise restrained, she couldn't kill herself in the manner described.

They have all the drugs in their system or alcohol in their system to relax them so they can put a plastic bag over their head without panicing later and trying to get it off. It is absolutely possible she did this to herself.

I don't believe that for minute. She was packed and ready to go to her golf tournament. The Dr. boyfriend had something to do with it.
