So very sad no matter what happened here a child lost their life in a horrific & tragic way. If it does turn out to be suicide I highly recommend this website as a resource. www.suicide.org

I lost a dear friend to suicide almost one year ago & that site & it's contents have been phenomenal.

Prayers for the family & friends of this young girl. I hope they are able to find peace in this rough time.

My prayers go out to the Engineer and trainman. I am married to a retired engineer and you have no ideal how it effects their life. This is a very sad situation but not only can you hear but you can also feel when the train is coming. I do feel sorry for this girls family and just wonder what was so horrible that she could not confront them. May God be with all that are involved.

Suicide is NOT painless!! Left behind are the family and friends who are left to wonder if only they could have done something. A mother's tears, a father's misery, an uncles pain, and grandmother's worst nightmare.

Suicide is NOT painless.

Suicide is NOT painless.
The vast majority of suicides are preventable, if friends and family are able to identify the signs of someone in need of help. Not placing blame, just saying.

Have you lost someone to suicide? If not, shut your mouth!! I lost my father not even two months ago... you have no clue what you just say and how flammatory that statement was. My thoughts and prayers go to the family... suicide or not. Death is always hard to deal with but with the age of this CHILD... I can't imagine.

I agree that noone has said it was a suicide, I guess everyone is assuming other than Tega who says this girl was a friend of her daughters and that she didn't move for a reason. Which really isn't her place to tell everyone anyway. What are the other 2 scenarios that it could be? I don't think anyone should walk on or even near train tracks, that just not a good idea. Prayers for her family and for the train conductor who shouldn't have had to be put through this.

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.

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.
If you knew her mother you would understand, She grew up around constant drug addictions and much violence. Her mother is known for bringing in new men, getting them to move in and then beating them half to death filing charges on the guys and taking all their belongings. Her mom has a rap sheet a mile long in several counties and is currently in trouble with drugs again.
Sam was a very sweet girl and had problems being her moms minion. I have no doubt whatsoever her mother drover her to the breaking point and as you said really saw NO WAY OUT.

Our hearts truly go out to this wonderful girl, it saddens us all she ended this way.

I am a friend of Brian Collins and I knew Sam very well. I haven't talked to Sam in 2 months. I don't know why this happened. This is so sad.
