Thank God a child didn't discover her, what a sad story

"Sheriff's officials have not confirmed the woman hanged herself.", but this reporter has already determined it is suicide. Not enough information to conclude suicide based on the article. Either way, it's a tragedy.. I hope she wasn't murdered.

What a loser to taint a kids park like this. Coudn't she fine a handy rafter or something somewhere else?

SD Union Tribune reported today the Brown's 2012-2013 budget has actually INCREASED from 85.9 billion to 92.1 billion. How's that for cutting government spending?

Nov. 5, 2011 "A man committed suicide on the porch of Temecula Hotel on Main Street in Old Town on Friday." I don't understand it either Mr. Lada. "It seems" suicide is usually more private, but not too private as to be out in the middle of a 200 acre forest or something. They want to be found, but usually by the right person I think. But to do this deed out in the open, park, rocking chair of a motel, is like they are commanding more then the normal amount of attention by their death. With no thought as to it being a child who finds them, or anyone for that matter. If I was to find either one of these people I would be distressed for quite sometime. Hopefully we get some more information and its not a murder. The reporting looks like it was written late at night, QUOTES: "Woman Kills Herself in Temecula Park, The woman was discovered -- reportedly hanging from a park slide -- at Morgan Hill Park about 8:30 p.m., A woman committed suicide in the playground of a Temecula Park Wednesday night, authorities said., The suicide was reported about 8:30 p.m., according to authorities., Scanner chatter at the time indicated that a man had discovered his girlfriend hanging from a park slide in the park, 45316 Morgan Hill Drive., Sheriff's officials have not confirmed the woman hanged herself."

Thanks Brenda, for re-writing the article (which I did read for myself) and for telling me that quotation marks mean you are quoting something. I think that if someone is planning to kill themselves, they are far from the norm in their processing of information and decision making. However, I also believe that if the body had been discovered by a child the likelihood is that they would not be as traumatized by the discovery as would an adult. Children today are inured to death simply by the preponderance of seeing humans as mere game pieces or television things to be damaged, removed from play and treated as obstacles. They have little or no comprehension of a person outside of themselves having feelings, a right to life, being worthy of respect etc. We have only ourselves to blame. Whatever the circumstances this woman, if indeed she did take her own life, was deserving of a little more thought than that she is a mere inconvenience - purposely left to cause a problem for someone else. Think about what she was going through. If, in fact, she was murdered, then perhaps your disdain should be saved for the perpetrator.

Authorities are willing to state that it was a suicide but do not confirm that she hung herself, and she was found hanging from a slide... So if she did not hang herself and it was a suicide how was she found hanging on the slide... Why do the authorities give such sketchy information? My children went to the school that is right next to this park and I know for a fact that many of my friends children play at this park... It just makes me sick to my stomach that someone would do this knowing there is a possibility that a child might find them...

That is so sad I used to go to school next to the park and my sister goes there now. For the family whose daughter has died she is in God's hands now and will be safe and sound. God bless your family's heart and hope you are okay with your sudden loss.
