Probably drug related. She was probably drunk.

It doesn't matter if she was drinkin' or high, no one can fall off a chest high wall by themself, nor shall they be judged by any of us, we all have a skeleton somewhere in our closet!

You've never been to Townview Towers, obviously. The likelihood of drugs, alcohol, or someone pushing her are 100 times more likely here than mere accident. None of those statements are out of line when it comes to Townview.

We haven't known for a few years where she's been.
No matter what though, she is a human and our family is lookin' for answers, just like anyone else's would. It's our loss and we need to deal with it.

That is her son. He was stabbed over a drug deal gone bad last Tuesday. Wonder what the chances are that that apple didn't fall from the tree. I saw him on the news tonight. Dude, sorry your mom died but, you know that there is no way she could just "fall" off the 4th fourth floor. Mabye there is a little truth in the fact she had some "help" by being wasted and not knowing what she was doing.

Yea Dude! And if you knew what was going on, maybe you would know that this is the second woman to get thrown off the fourth floor of this same balcony, and probably if I'm quessing it's the same big guy doing the job, more than likely because of drugs, also. Since everyone says that Townview Towers is more or less the ghettos, I would imagine anything illegal could happen there. And knowing that there are very few people CONCERNED enough to come forward to tell the truth for the life or death of another human.

I'm sorry about the loss of your family member. As you say, she's a human being and deserves some compassion.

It is so sad how meaness is spread. I would think that people would stop for a second and put themselves in the shoes of the people that are affected with theis death! When I heard the broadcast online the newscaster was so cavalier that it shocked me! So, what if this isn't the first time? Then I really think the police should do more than investigating...and try to clean it up!
My dear friend...I am so sorry and your family and you are in my prayers.
May God Bless those that are so mean!

The family should be rightly be upset at their loss, however,,,, It should in no way come as a suprise, THE FAMILY HAS PROBLEMS!!!!!!!!! Her son was stabbed just last week over a drug deal gone bad, and didn't somebody say that they had not talked to her for a long time?? I agree it's sad and should be investigated further to check out any possible leads, but don't act shocked!!! If you were so close to her why didn't anyone know where she'd been or how she was doing?

Much positive thoughts directed your way. It's hard to deal with any time...particularly at Christmas.

And that is what family is all about.
Do not let any of the negative comments affect you and yours in your time of grieving. The people that make such statements have no life nor love in their hearts. They are only on here to get a reaction from you to make their day.

To the family: stay strong, quit reading this bs. and honor her memory, love her children and live life like there is no tomorrow....
