So says Slog tipper Matthew, rightly, about this story.
Headline: Man with Suicide Victim’s Heart Takes Own Life.
Sub-headline: He even married the donor’s widow after the transplant 12 years ago.
Full story here.
anyone looking into the wife?
I blame guns. It not true that suicidal people will eventually find a way to do themselves in. That's why the Aurora bridge fence is a good idea. If they survive their moment of crisis, they can get help and stay alive. But when you've got guns lying around everywhere, this is what you get.
The superstitious part of me wants to believe that somehow a piece of his tormented soul remained with the transplanted heart...
But the Realist in me says the wife was a harpy that eventually drove her husbands to suicide.
@2: I was thinking the same thing. TWO "suicidal" husbands? I feel bad for her kids.
@3, that's very true. Part of the reason that men commit suicide more often than women, even though women attempt suicide more often than men, is that men tend to choose more effective means, including guns. If you're using a less effective means, it might delay you long enough to rethink it.
This is the kind of story that gets turned in to a "Ripped from the Headlines" episode of Law & Order.
Reminds me of a movie.
2 4 and 5 beat me to it
I'm trying to figure out if this is Hitchcockian, Almodovarian, Coen-ian, or Watersian...or just fcuked up.
I'm thinking it's Innaritu-an, since it so closely mirrors the plot of 21 Grams.
I thought the creepy part was the wife 30 years his junior.
But, hey man, way to lock that up. Whatta player.
The widow's name: Courtney Love
