How did I not know about this?

This is some sick, dark stuff. Most interesting to me was this line: "Her mother, in an interview granted the day of the suicide, said Christine was very depressed and had few friends or romantic interests." Unlike the usual shocked neighbors, friends, and family, Christine's mother almost expected this. In fact, the whole final paragraph (of this Wikipedia entry) was fascinating in that this woman very openly did everything that one might expect from someone about to commit suicide, yet no one came close to stopping her. Absolutely bizarre and terrible, but I have to say, fascinating. Her death helped inspire the landmark 1976 film Network.
