    Confirmation Of Huckaby Suicide Attempt Prior to Arrest

    For what it's worth, wasn't sure to put this somewhere
    else or not. Move or remove if this confirmation has already
    been brought up. LC



    Accused Tracy Murderer Tried To Kill Herself
    TRACY (CBS 5 / AP) ―

    The Sunday school teacher accused with raping and murdering an 8-year-old Tracy girl attempted suicide days before her arrest in the case, CBS News has learned.

    Melissa Huckaby was hospitalized after swallowing three X-Acto knife blades, reports CBS News correspondent John Blackstone. She remained under suicide watch after being formally charged Tuesday with kidnapping, raping and murdering her daughter's playmate, Sandra Cantu.

    They are going to blame it on a psych break or blame it on her meds:

    She said she does not believe her granddaughter could have committed the crime, unless "some freakish thing happened."
    She said her granddaughter had been taking some psychotropic medication.

    Why would an innocent person try to kill herself just days before being arrested for a heinous crime?? Coincidental timing? Coincidental theft of the very same luggage Sandra's body was found in? Coincidental association with the supposed place of death?

    Guess she was telling the truth about the internal bleeding. Now, if she could just tell the truth about the crime.

    How do you swallow x-acto knife blades? Wouldn't they have to do surgery to remove those? They couldn't just leave them in there.. I don't believe this story.

    Not necessarily.

    "Ninety percent of swallowed objects successfully pass through the esophagus and into the child’s stomach. Once in the stomach, almost all objects, even sharp ones, go through the small and large intestines and come out mixed in the stool."

    I still can't imagine swallowing x-acto blades though. That is some bonkers stuff right there. Plus, I wouldn't think that swallowing 3 blades would kill you.

    That did it for me. At first, I was kinda on the fence about whether she could have done this herself, but now I think she did. I would love know what was going through her head at the time, plus its amazing her own daughter is alive.
