I was wondering whatever became of a study buddy I had in college in the 1990s recently. When I knew her, she was about 30, recently divorced and had a couple of young kids. After the classes we had together, we kept in loose contact for a couple years but eventually we drifted apart. She crossed my mind once in a while whenever I would drive though her old neighborhood or by her old place of work.

A quick Google search found an obituary - she passed in April of 2014. Damn. The obit didn't specify how she had died, so I Googled some more. It turns out she drowned in her home's swimming pool. Wow, that's a shock. When she and I studied, we would do so at her house, and she had a pool. More than once we studied in and around the pool (yeah, yeah - I know! :cool:). She was a good swimmer. I seem to recall she told me she was on the swim team at her HS, but shit can happen, I guess.

There were dozens more articles on her, though, because apparently what at first appeared to be an accidental drowning, was later ruled to be a homicide, and the suspected murderer one her sons because insurance and inheritance was mentioned as a motive. There hasn't been enough evidence to arrest him to this point (the case is still cold), but a wrongful death lawsuit was filed against him in 2015 by the deceased's husband (she had remarried). I haven't dug deep enough to know how that turned out, yet.

This got me thinking about several other people I have known who have been murdered: a couple girls I went to HS with, a guy I used to race with, a girl I used to work with, and a few others. I even know a couple people who have murdered.

What about you? Know anyone who has been murdered? Know any murderers...? :unsure:

In college my then girlfriend had a neighbor that killed her husband by bashing his head in with a cast iron skillet. Always knew she wasn’t all there. Crazy eyes. They would have raging, screaming fights sometimes. I called it when I said one of them will end up killing the other.

In 93 I was in high school. A buddy of mine was at his girlfriends place. I knew them all. They were hanging in the basement about to start a fire in the fireplace. His girlfriends brother somehow snapped and killed one of the friends there with a hatchet. Just kept chopping at his chest. Buddy said the scene was absolutely horrific.

Yes, friend, she was cut up by boy friend who was drug addict. He jumped off parking garage two days later. The only good thing was they think he alive for 6-7 hours after jumping laying in the alley before he died.

When selling my business a husband and wife were very interested. She wanted him to buy it for their son. He just wanted to try to lowball me. I stood my ground. They went home to discuss. He shot her. No idea if it was argument over the sale. Now in prison.
