I live in the building and it was the most horrifying event I've ever seen. This is definitely suspicious!

Yeah, I wish there was more information about the story. As far as I know it didn't even make the news. It was a big deal in my book, this makes the murder count pretty high here in downtown now. I don't like it here.

Actually I saw a clip on ABC 27 News tonight at 11pm, but it only lasted a couple of seconds. They said the girl was in her boyfriend's apartment and he told the cops he'd been drinking and was dangling her out of the window when he dropped her.

My friends and I witnessed the event and we are having trouble dealing with it. Could you tell me more about her? I can't stop thinking about her family. If she had brothers and sisters? How was she connected to Kevin? I haven't slept very well since Saturday. I can't even imagine what her family and friends are going through.

Do you think they were fighting, is that why there was yelling and screaming or was the screaming from her falling? if you think they were fighting, how long would you say this all lasted!! This is her best friend and I am just trying to put this all together. Rachel would never agree to being hung out a 23 story window. I appreciate everyones thoughts and prayers for her, for all of you who didn't know rachel you all missed how truely great a person she really was. We all have a bright angel watching over us!!!!

Myself and two of my friends witnessed Rachel actually hitting the ground and our friend who lives there rode down in the elevator with Kevin before she knew what happened. She and I both wanted to know more about Rachel and who she was to help with closure for us because we know this was some sort of freak accident. Contact me if you want...

I don't know if this helps, but I doubt they were fighting. I met them in the lobby about an hour and a half before the incident and they said they had just gotten engaged and were celebrating. They were obviously very intoxicated but Rachel did seem like a lovely girl. She helped me into the apartment with my bags and said she wanted to make sure I would get in ok. I had no idea something that horrible was going to happen to the poor girl.

Is it true that they had just gotten engaged? It's seems out of place for what we had witnessed. I'd like to talk to you off this forum about it. Please email my friend.

I'm am so sorry for your loss. I know you will have all sorts of questions like we do. Hopefully we can help and draw strength from each other.

They told me they had just gotten engaged. They were talking all about the ring he was going to buy her and how they were celebrating. It seemed like they were really happy, but just too intoxicated.

I rode the elevator down with him after the accident. My friends were outside. It doesn't make sense from the things he was saying.

Because of the investigation, I don't know that I can say. I don't want to feed reporters information, either. The families involved have the right to their privacy. But it didn't give me reason to believe that they had just gotten engaged.
