NJ police officer disrupts apparent suicide try

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS • April 27, 2010

CLINTON TOWNSHIP — Police in New Jersey say an officer looking for a missing teen may have prevented her and a friend from committing suicide when he broke down the door of a motel room where the girls had been drinking a mixture of Advil and antifreeze.

The girls were discovered Tuesday morning in Clinton Township, about 30 miles northwest of Trenton.

A township resident had called police Monday night to report her 16-year-old daughter missing.

Clinton Special Officer Alfonso Carasio found her car in the parking lot of a Route 22 motel about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The manager gave him a room key, but the door was secured with a chain lock, so officers broke it down.

The 16-year-old was hospitalized in satisfactory condition. Her 17-year-old friend was in critical condition.



The older girl is the step daughter of someone we know. As of late last night she was still unresponsive, renal failure, not breathing on her own, but receiving dialysis and medication. That’s all I know.

From what I understand both these girls have everything going for them. Great grades, popularity, extraordinary good looks, caring normal families with loads of money. LOADS. Everything you could possibly realistically want as a suburban teenage girl in America. Charmed lives. Yet they made a suicide pact together and did their best to carry it out.

This is very baffling. Beyond my understanding and (so far) anyone else’s as well. It was completely out of the blue.

Antifreeze poisoning is pretty awful, especially after 12+ hours post ingestion. Several states have laws that require a foul tasting additive be added (Bitrex), though studies show that this doesn’t hinder it’s use in this kind of situation. Maybe a really potent regurgitant is needed too. Maybe the stuff should just be taken off the market, since the food-grade non-poisonous propylene glycol works just as well in your radiator. And maybe parents should have a better dialogue with their children, and a greater awareness of what’s going on in their lives. But with some kids that isn’t always possible.

I don’t have the answers. I barely even have the questions.

UPDATE: It took 2 days but she pulled through. Breathing on her own, somewhat responsive. The physical damage is going to take a long time to heal and may require hemodialysis sessions for months to come. Permanent kidney damage can not be ruled out yet. The mental and emotional damage? That’s anyone’s guess right now. It’s too soon to even be asking questions.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
