this sounds like suicide between lovers. They were nude?

that's my take on it.

They were found nude and alive then taken to the hospital where they died. I am in downtown Columbia a couple of Streets from the scene and I can't figure out what building they would have fallen from. I really don't see that many buildings in that area??

Maybe they were doing it on top of the building and got carried away.

I don't know many people who say "Hey, let's jump off a building nude to be found dead by everyone"

Or maybe they were high but that is a really bad way to die!

sounds like they were having sex and rolled off the building. Then again it could have been that they thought they could fly.

The first thing that came to my mind when I read that they were naked was the same exact thing you said. They were up there doing it...on the roof top...and they were so caught up in the moment that they didn't realize they were getting to close to the edge. Regardless, that's a horrible way to die. I pray that this was an accident and not some type of homicide.

The Tapps building on Main St which is now luxury apartments has an open roof. It's open to tenants who live in the building. You can go up there any time of day or night and there's nothing to keep you from falling off. I was up there with Thomas Ravenel doing some blow and we were both like "Wow" it would be so easy to jump off here and die in the middle of Main St.

I wonder if this has any thing to do with the State Treasurer Ravenel.
Maybe they didnt want to hang around to be snitch on.

This probably is a homicide. It looks
like someone wanted them off the roof. They were caught naked and
the people were thrown over.

Maybe a husband or boyfriend. Just loss it because they couldn't handle the truth after catching them.

Maybe someone had a huge Insurance
policies on them and was ready to cash in.

That building is across from the Governor Manison. Maybe some cameras
saw something.

That building is also near a Federal building. Something should be on big
brothers cameras.

I don't think people can get that Freaky!!

I thought they might have been having sex also. Which is a sad way to die. Because if they were tring to hide something by being up there now everyone in the midlands knows about it.
