Appeal to Rafael…

Hi Rafael (I never got the chance to copy your last name)…a while back, I
posted a question regarding my mother’s suicide to which you responded on
this ng…unfortunately, my server told me that your message was ‘no longer
available’, so I’m trying again, in an attempt to get your reply. You can
send it to me by e-mail, if you want. Hopefully, you’ll read this. I’ll
refresh your memory by giving you the story again (I’m sorry for anyone who
has to read this again). My mother committed suicide 14 years ago and no
authopsies were performed. She was found lying in bed, with her arms at her
side, and a plastic bag over her head that was wrapped and tied at the neck
very thightly. My brother, who found her, noticed an empty bottle of
Halcion by the bed. My question was ‘Is it possible for her to have taken
those pills (I don’t know how many there were), then laid down and wrap her
head in this plastic bag, without any trauma or obvious force being used?
Remember that the bag was very tight against her neck. There was no
question in our minds that it was a suicide…she left a note dated four
days prior…but my brother has a hard time figuring out how she could do
something like that, all by herself, without fighting. Wouldn’t she have
‘naturally’ fought to breathe? I was just trying to find some answers for
him and your reply (again…sorry) would be greatly appreciated. France

    Dear France,
    no signs of fights and the fact that she left a note suggests that it’s a
    true suicide, and YES, it is possible for her to have taken those pills then
    laid down and wrap her head in this plastic. I saw something like that in
    Orlando FL 4 or 5 months ago, and it’s a common way to commit suicide.
    Yours,
