How sad that no one saw what had to be obvious signs of depression so that this tragic end could have been prevented. I feel so sorry for her family.
Cindy,

Manic-Depressives can change states going from mania to normal to depressed in a little over 48 hours. You never know what will set them off, their feelings are generally easier to hurt than a normal person, they can be super sensitive. Parents, siblings and friends cannot readily read their intentions and predict their actions.

Seeing and doing something are two largely unrelated items, you cannot guard a mature adult person 24 hours a day, particularly one who has a full time job and travels independently.

Been there.

Hi Mr NC, You stated "just find some help"?? I encourage you to seek out someone who has experienced depression and ask that person about the long, difficult, more-often-than-not impossible road to "just finding some help". It is an invisible medical condition that is generally discounted by many people and is accompanied by an terrible stigma, especially for a nurse. Better yet, why not be 'the help" that so many desperately need and volunteer for a suicide prevention hotline?? Peace be with you through your life journey; some of those around us don't have the peace of mind that we easily enjoy. Be thankful and reach out to others who are experiencing this deadly condition.
I've lost a sibling to suicide; prayers to all of you who love Tracy.

I Agree with Fox8 choosing Not to Plaster "Suicide" all over everything...Her Children and Family are the ones left to Suffer...No need in others making their pain any harder than it already has been.

Just wanted to let the family know my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. May God help you through this terrible outcome. Remember when you think no one is there just call on Jesus and he will help you get through this, God Bless you all.

I think MY point was misunderstood. Shame on Fox8 for not making this a more important headline than some of the other crap they report. This, to me is a major story. Mother and wife (separated or not) goes missing for week. As far as "plastering suicide" across the hot bar... wtf?? Reporting this story isn't about reporting a suicide, it's about reporting the fact that she had been found!! The whole community has been worried. As tragic as the outcome is, it's nice to know what happened and how rest of the community can help this family out during a time of need.

At the time of my posting, it wasn't officially confirmed as suicide. So lay off of it!!

She looks really normal? What are you trying to say John? Define normal for us? Would you be offended if this were you or your daughter, wife or mother, you were talking about? Tragedy can strike ANY family.
I don't think he meant anything by it, maybe mischoice of words. i agree she doesn't look like the type. She is beautiful and looks like a sweet woman who worked for baptist. Not excactly your number one pick for the suicide statistics. No disrespect intended

But it is OK to plaster pictures of horrific automobile accidents when people lose their lives? This is an opportunity for the community to reach out to the family in an appropriate way. In return, when the family is ready, it will be an opportunity for them to share with others when dealing with a family suicide. One of my favorite aunts committed suicide when I was a teenager. It leaves a lasting impression. My prayers go out to the friends and family of Tracy!

This is very tragic. I hope that when the time is appropriate, this will spark suicide awareness using her story as deemed appropriate and with the blessing of her family. My sincere sympathy to the family and those close to her.

She didn't show it, everytime she went somewhere public she was a happy go lucky person, even her best friend didn't know

OK. Let's say that what you say is true. What exactly does the "suicide" type look like to you? Suicide doesn't have a type. It can affect ANY family in any race, culture, economic status, and so on. Suicide is a selfish act because the person that commits this act leaves the mess behind for others to deal with but before you get mad at me remember this is still ruled an "apparent" suicide. Also there are sometimes underlying circumstance like genetic factors and chemical imbalances that can further complicate this subject. I am one of those people. This is a very misunderstood and undiagnosed condition. Add to it the stigma that goes with being labeled depressed and many don't, can't or won't or don't know how to seek help. I went to the doctor and was undiagnosed for years - I was diagnosed after I injured my back. I feel lucky. This could have very well been me. Prayers for the family.

Some people just have a sad look about them when they are severely depressed...I can also relate with you about the Pain Issue...Nothing can drag you down quicker than being a vibrant healthy person to someone in constant pain. Just to look at this woman's picture she appears extremely Happy..Guess you never know.
