this was Libby M. Rittmeyer, 14

died Friday , Feb. 17, 2017.

she jumped here

looks to me the water tower is protected by a chain link fence with barbed wire so i'm wondering how she got in.

i suppose with enough determination she could climb to near top and american ninja warrior her way over by jumping, but wouldn't jumping off a cliff or high building be easier?

then again that's second guessing. by that i mean, sure she could have jumped to her death some where else, but in the end, that's what she chose to do.

she either climbed over the barb wire fence or perhaps slipped through the gap in the gates.
sounds like a painful way to die.

only 14.

they carry her dead body

The St. Clair County Coroner’s Office has released the identity of a girl who died in a fall from a water tank in Belleville on Friday night.

Libby M. Rittmeyer, 14, of Belleville was pronounced dead at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Belleville about 10:30 p.m., said Deputy Coroner Dennis Nichols.
She died of multiple injuries, Nichols said. The case was being investigated as a suicide, Nichols said.

A reporter saw an adult woman crying loudly after talking with police at the scene Friday night..

The girl lived about five blocks away from the water tank.

The storm-water reservoir has only been there for a couple of years, neighbors said. One neighbor reported seeing a lot of police cars and one ambulance speed away from the scene about 10 p.m. on Friday.

Libby had attended St. Teresa’s Catholic Grade School in Belleville, but recently transferred to West Junior High.

District 118 Superintendent Matt Klosterman said Saturday that he had engaged in some initial discussions with how to help students and staff deal with Libby’s death.

“The district will have a plan in place with our social work and psychology staff to go into a crisis mode so we can support students and staff impacted by Libby’s death,” Klosterman said.

He added, “Anytime there is a death of a student it is overwhelming to both our staff and students. Our thoughts and prayers are with Libby and her family.”

no reasons stated. i'm wondering how high of a fall is survivable, since that water tank doesn't look that high.

no reason stated.  her family accepts this. my guess she probably suffered from mental health issues so family wasn't surprised she committed suicide. just 14 years and she's gone.

these 2 sisters Shauna (23) and Michelle (33) Reilly both committed suicide, leaving 1 sister alive and remaining.

Shauna (23) Reilly the younger sister committed  suicide in Dec 2016
Michelle (33)  Reilly the oldest sister committed  suicide Friday Feb. 17, 2017

they seem rather normal looking

The devastated sister of a young woman who took her own life has claimed Health Minister Michelle O’Neill failed to respond to a heartfelt letter she has said she sent weeks before another sister died the same way.

Heartbroken Emma Reilly from Co Fermanagh lost her two sisters to suicide within weeks of each other.

The close-knit family said they will never get over the deaths of Shauna (23) and Michelle (33).

“To suddenly go from having two sisters to being an only child is horrific,” Emma said.

A spokeswoman for the minister told the Belfast Telegraph that Ms O’Neill plans to contact Emma “as a matter of urgency”, adding that she had not received the correspondence.

Shauna passed away suddenly in December and her older sister Michelle died last Friday.

The funeral of Michelle, who was engaged to be married next year, took place in Enniskillen on Monday.

Emma (30) said her two sisters were very close.

“We are never going to get over this, ever. The only comfort we have is that Shauna and Michelle are together again,” she told the Impartial Reporter.

Michelle was described as an intelligent and popular woman who was a home bird.

She called at the family home every day to check on her father Michael, who suffered a brain injury in 2010 following a heart attack.

“Dad idolised her,” Emma added.

“She was born on his 21st birthday and they named her Michelle because it’s French for the female version of Michael.”

Following Shauna’s death, Emma told the Impartial Reporter that she sent a letter to the Health Minister on January 16 where she spoke of her youngest sister’s long battle to “get better”.

“We as a family have fought a tireless battle with the NHS mental health service, one which sadly we have lost, but there is potential for other families to be helped and other people’s suffering to be healed,” she wrote in the heartfelt plea.

Emma asked the Sinn Fein minister to look into mental health services, the current gaps that exist and the potential for extra funding.

She also pleaded with the minister to put mental health and suicide prevention “at the top” of her agenda.

“There’s a lack of mental health services in Fermanagh,” she continued.

“Money is being pumped into cancer services and people are benefiting, but mental health hasn’t been getting any funding and people are suffering.”

Emma said she sent the same letter to Sinn Fein MLAs Sean Lynch and Michelle Gildernew and SDLP MLA Richie McPhillips. Mr McPhillips was the only one to reply.

She added: “I don’t know what life is like without Michelle. She couldn’t live without Shauna. Wherever one was, the other wasn’t far behind. From day dot Michelle idolised Shauna.”

Heartbroken fiance Simon Stenson said he met Michelle when she was 17.

They became a couple in 2010, and the pair became engaged last year.

He said that Michelle couldn’t wait to get married and that she had paid off the deposit for the Slieve Russell Hotel in Co Cavan a week after their engagement.

Simon said he will treasure these “bittersweet” memories in the difficult times.

“Life won’t be the same again. I was always with Michelle. Myself and the Reillys are all a family now. We will have to get each other through it,” he said.

At Michelle’s funeral mass in St Michael’s Church on Monday, Father Donnelly told mourners how difficult it was to comprehend that two sisters died the same way.

He also stressed the importance of people talking about their problems.

A spokeswoman for the Health Minister said: “The Minister is deeply saddened to hear of the tragic deaths of Shauna and Michelle Reilly, and extends her sympathy to Emma Reilly and the entire family circle.

“Unfortunately, the Department has no record of receiving correspondence from Ms Reilly as reported in the Impartial Reporter yesterday. The Minister will contact Ms Reilly as a matter of urgency.”

i suspect both sisters inherited the SKA2 suicide gene
wiki wrote:
SKA2 is a human gene found in Chromosome 17 of the human genome. SKA2 gene encodes a protein called SKA2 also known as Spindle and Kinetochore Associated Complex Subunit 2 is a part of a Spindle and kinetochore associated complex also including SKA1 and SKA3 which is responsible for onset of the anaphase in mitosis by regulating chromosomal segregation.[1][2]

SKA2 may function as a prognostic gene marker for identifying lung cancer[3] as well as an important biomarker for suicidal tendencies and post-traumatic stress disorders.[4][5] The SKA2 gene contains one Single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs7208505 located in the 3' UTR. This genetic variant containing a Cytosine (existing in the less common allele) instead of Thymine along with epigenetic modification (such as DNA methylation) is correlated with suicidal tendencies and post-traumatic stress.[4]

Clinical Significance
Suicidal tendencies and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

The DNA methylation of SKA2 gene and the Single-nucleotide polymorphism rs7208505 genotype may have effects on suicidal behaviour according to linear model suggested by a study in 2014. The genotype rs7208505 contains a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) containing a Cytosine variant allele instead of Thymine present in the common allele. This SNP allows the dinucleotide repeat (CpG) elements to occur providing a gene segment for methylation. Thus DNA methylation alone may be the primary factor conferring risk of suicidal behaviour. A study of allele of rs7208505 in different ethnic groups along with numerous psychiatric diagnosis suggested that the variation in SKA2 may mediate risk for suicidal behaviours that progress to attempt to suicide.[4]

in effect, for some suicidal is a genetic orientation like homosexuality. if at birth these and other have  DNA methylation of SKA2 gene they will have an orientation towards life that is suicidal. No

so Friday Feb 17, 2017 two white females committed suicide. another did as well

Charlotte Cash mum of 4 committed suicide by throwing herself onto an oncoming train.
Friday Feb 17, 2017

A mum-of-four killed herself by jumping in front of a train at a busy station.

It is believed she gave her bag to a stranger just moments before the tragedy.

Charlotte Cash 34 died after being hit by a London-bound train at Wigan North Western station yesterday afternoon.

Commuters - including Team GB athlete Jenny Meadows - were left devastated after witnessing the incident just after 3.15pm.

Witnesses said 34-year-old Charlotte was sending a text message on her phone moments before she was struck by the London-bound train.

so she was actively chatting on texting via iphone, then gave her purse to a complete stranger then jumped in front of an oncoming train..  YIKES and she leaves behind 4 children.

imagine you see this woman and she offers you her purse and iphone. complete stranger. next thing you know, she's jumping , and gets hit by a train. that's what several eyewitnesses said they personally saw

on Valentine's day  Tuesday Feb 14, 2017
Lisa Williams, 31,

Lisa Williams, 31, left the love message along with five bars of chocolate for each of her children before setting off to the beach.

Less than an hour before she died in the visitors' shelter, Mrs Williams posted a picture of the St Valentine's card with the loving message next to the chocolate bars.

She wrote: "I love you with all my Welsh heart ... will see you all I promise."

Her children, aged five to 14, were being cared for by relatives after the tragedy. She specified which chocolate bar was for each of her children in the message and also left a necklace to one of her daughters.

In it she wrote: "Chocolate treats for you all off mam."

She then spelled out all her children's names and giving each a Galaxy Smooth, Galaxy Smooth Caramel, Malteasers or Milkie Bar.

She then wrote: "Kind hands, kind feet, nice words and caring is sharing."

so she believes she will see her children again. She hoped for the best for her 5 children, but she doesn't want to be around anymore.

how sad it must be that 5 young children receive these chocolate on Valentine's day, with a letter with her mother promising to see them soon. when in fact she had committed suicide and was dead.
the 5 will never seen her mother soon, unless u believe in some afterlife.

that's 2 moms who committed suicide week of Feb 14-17 2017, total 9 children will be mumless .

these are her final handwritten messages

she's quite creative  Sad

she had been contemplating suicide for quite some time. her husband and father of her child had committed suicide, their child died as he was born premature. so entire family is gone.
sounds like she blames herself for her husband suicide/death since she gave birth to a son that was premature and died. And she wants to be reunited with both her son she never knew and partner.
in death

not every day we get a peak into mind of someone contemplating suicide, then does it.

this is some sad stuff. Sad i suspect she felt she would be reunited with her son and husband in the afterlife which is what she wanted.

would this happen if she never became pregnant to begin with? say using birth control?

If you only knew the POWER of the Daubert side
