    Mississippi State Rep. Jessica Upshaw found dead

    ...Mississippi Bureau of Investigation spokesman Warren Strain says the crime scene unit is at a home in Mendenhall, investigating her death.

    Neither Strain nor Tutor would comment about the cause of death. Strain says it does not appear to be a natural death. The Clarion-Ledger reports the lawmaker died from a gunshot wound to the head, citing state Capitol sources....

    Makes you wonder what kind of laws she's been interested in of late, right ?
    Someone may have been super upset with her over her stance on something.

    I think it will be interesting which way this investigation goes. Self-inflicted or homicide. :(

    I have almost never heard of a gun suicide by a woman. I understand she was found in the home of another state legislator? This could get interesting..

    So sad. Does sound like suicide, if what he is saying is true. :(

    Trichomonas is a sexually transmitted disease. Toxoplasmosis is carried by cats.

    At this point, I do believe she committed suicide. It would be pretty foolish for him to have shot her in his own home. In any event, terribly sad. I do wonder if her depression was specific, i.e a particular issue that had saddened her to such a degree and wonder if we will ever know.

    Why would she go outside to the car, open the door and shoot herself? Don't women usually pick a more private place to commit suicide?

    I wonder is she was trying to get away but didn't quite make it? I'll be interested to see what the forensics will tell us.

    MOO
