Just wondered of if this lady was the one I saw Thursday morning? She was well dressed, just leaving the bushes in that area, as thought she was walking to work in the Madonna Plaza direction. I couldn’t help but to wonder what people leave the bushes and go to work after a cold night?

If you are going to kill yourself please do it in a way that you won’t injure of kill another….stay away from freeways and roads….

What an awful and tragic story. The Lord strengthen and comfort her family and those who were close to her. :’o(

Jumped implies suicide, hanging seems to imply she did not want to fall.

This is too sad. Rest in peace

This is so terribly sad. Lord have mercy. May she rest in peace.
