Very sad 25 is way to young to die. I feel sorry for the baby that will never know her mother. RIP young lady

I just read a story on another site that had a statement from the coroner's office. It said that there were "no visible signs of trauma" to the body, so a gunshot wound is out. Probably an overdose, whether intentional or accidental.

Strange how people who spend so much time making a spectacle of themselves for money/attention want the "utmost privacy" when this kind of disaster arrives. There's a lesson there somewhere.

It always amazes me why these people strive for media attention if they are unhappy. Being famous doesn't make you any happier. seo
