Not again: missing lesbian couple found dead in suspected suicide pact

Via AutoStraddle, another painful story of young people feeling there is no way out other than to take their lives. This has to stop. This case in Toronto shows how depression, when not properly attended to as in these cases, can lead to tragedy.

Last Tuesday in Orangeville, near Toronto, Canada, 21-year-old Jeanine Blanchette and 17-year-old Chantal Dube’s friends received “goodbye” phone calls from the couple, who’d been together since meeting in group therapy that February.

…After Jeanine’s mother got the letter she went straight to Jeanine’s house, where she found Jeanine’s computer completely wiped of memory and receipts for hundreds of anti-psychotic pills, purchased at two separate pharmacies last Sunday and Monday.
