I am so sorry for the family she left behind.. They usually are left wondering why, what was happening, why couldn't she come to someone for help... it didn't have to end this way. again my deepest sympathies go to the families or this woman.

My sympathies go out to the Coast Guardsman that had to recover the mangled body. Their the ones that do the really dirty work here.

It's very sad. I heard on a different report that they tried to revive her. Do they know the cause of death?

Amen... They like the land police have to deal with a lot of ugliness that the rest of us are protected from. I hope they know how much they too are appreciated.

I think the 175 foot fall might have had a great deal to do with it.

It's hard, when someone can no longer see a way out of their despair. I just cannot imagine.

My deepest reguards to her family. Hopefully she did not leave any children behind, as I would fear that this is one terrible loss for them.

I can't imagine what could make a person feel so desperate that they think suicide is the only way out. Those left behind are left to wonder what they could have done or why their loved one didn't ask for help.

Jack and TP, even sickos like you serve a purpose, but I have yet to figure out what that is.

She jumped from the south tower? How did she get up there? It's locked and only accessible to MBA employees. More inaccuracies, because the top of the tower is not 175' above the water. The bridge deck is. The tower is over 500' above the water.

Sorry to hear it, but it can be fairly easy to be that desperate or depressed.

For that matter, if she was on anti-depressants, it could be the result of those.
