Just a few weeks ago, a lady in Oklahoma City committed suicide by train. Also, the guy in Nowata yesterday that was hit by the train...and now this young lady. We were just discussing elevated suicide rates due to the economy the other day at work...I think we will see more and more of these things. My thoughts and prayers for this young girl and her family and any other person who feels that suicide is the only way out.

I don't understand this post. Can anyone interpret this? I had not heard anything about any cocaine or any of the other listed.
I'm just hoping he's not OUR border patrol, or we're all in trouble!

Sincerest condolences to the family of Samantha. Very sweet girl whom I had the opportunity to meet. Life dealt you a bad hand but now you are safe in his hands.
God bless.

My GUESS is that this is a rap song that OUR children are listening to. Just a guess.

It is sad that this poor girl saw no other way out of what ever situation she was in. Prayers to the people who care about her.
Also, I have not seen one comment about the train engineer and what he/she must be going through. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the workers aboard the train as well.

People....pay attention to me...posters like border patrol are TROLLS. In case the term is unfamiliar to you, here is the definition:In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room or blog, with the primary intent of provoking other users into an emotional or disciplinary response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

Don't react to this crap...just ignore it. By responding, you are giving the dumb sheet what he/she wants. Pretty lame way to get attention, huh?

This is so sad. God bless the poor child's family. Generations of my family have been train conductors and have seen devistation such as this. People need to be more educated on train danger. More people than not don't understand the force of a train and it's suction power. A train can suck a person underneath it and the person doesn't have to be right next to it for it to happen. I hope the city or whoever spends more money on educating children (especially) the dangers of a train.

Thank you for mentioning this. I know that I had no idea a train had that much suction power and I'm sure others don't know either. Hopefully your post will help keep the people who are reading this safe.

Everybody also needs to pray for the conductor. My uncle was a conductor for over 40 years but had to retire after being in an accident like this, he ran over a man passed out on the tracks. It really tore him up and took such an emotional toll on him he couldn't face doing that work anymore. To see you are going to hit someone and not be able to stop, especially a young person must be a true nightmare.

No. He's just an idiot. Best thing to do is ignore him and not give his idocy anything to feed on.

I think you people are too quick to jump to conclusions. Where has it been written that this was suicide? I can think of at least two other scenarios that would fit this situation, but I'll wait for the official report rather than start more rumors.

IF it has been determined by the authorities that it was indeed suicide and I missed it, then tell me where I can read it.

My most heartfelt condolences to the family.

I just saw the story on Fox and it made no mention of cause.
