Paging DDS

"Alleged suicide victim may have been raped" -- Now this is the reason why media should not glorify suicides (read my previous entry "Media should not glorify suicides" below).

It now seems that Mariannet, before she committed suicide, was suffering from depression because she was raped. Poverty could have aggravated her depression but I have no doubt that it was the rape which triggered the decision to take her own life. It could be that she thought no man would want her now and that she can never marry anymore. Fearing that her rapist will return again and seeing her diminishing prospects of ever finishing high school, she then decided that life is not worth living anymore.

I truly wish they find and crucify the rapist. Paging DDS..... there's another job for you.
