Default Damn.

What a shame.
Just goes to show, you never know what is on someones mind.
My sympathies and prayers to the family and friends.
And may they rest in peace.

It gets weirder. Doesn't look like this was in any way a recent decision either, from what this report says:


Aussie twin 'wrote to Columbine pupil'



November 21, 2010 - 10:17AM


The Australian twin who killed herself in Colorado wrote letters to a Columbine High School student bullied by one of the killers in the 1999 massacre, local TV reported.

If confirmed the link would be the second between the joint suicide bid by identical twins Kristin and Candice Hermeler, who were found to have a photocopy of a Time magazine cover on the Columbine killers in their hotel room.

Local police have so far downplayed a possible connection with the massacre at the Columbine school, which is only a few kilometres away from the shooting range where the sisters shot themselves on Monday.




Kristin, who killed herself while her sister Candice survived with gunshot wounds, wrote to junior pupil Brooks Brown at the school in the Denver suburb of Littleton, Denver TV station KCNC said on Saturday.

They were sent in June and July after the April 20, 1999, shooting rampage by students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold who killed 13 people.


According to KCNC, Kristin wrote two letters to Brown, a student at Columbine who in 1998 was bullied by Harris, but who later became friends with him.

In one letter Kristin wrote, ‘‘As someone who has been rejected, victimised and ostracised in their life, I would like to thank you for giving him (Eric) that chance,’’ the television report said.

She also thanked Brown for accepting Harris and fellow shooter Klebold who had been ‘‘rejected and victimised by so many others.’’

The TV report did not identify the source of the letters. Calls to the Brown family home were not returned.


But police have downplayed the Columbine link - Sheriff’s Captain Louie Perea reiterated on Saturday that the surviving sister told investigators that the event ‘‘happened a long time ago and she didn’t care about it.’’

No other information about Columbine or other mass shootings was found in the twins’ belongings, he said.

The twins’ parents, Ernest and Kelsay Hermeler, arrived in Denver on Friday to care for their remaining daughter. They issued a statement through the hospital asking for privacy during this ‘‘extremely difficult time.’’

I am curious to see the twisted path this story is going to take.

I too have shot at that Cherry Creek range. When it first opened it was pretty rough, but after they got it going they put up more shooting positions and had a range officer walking around behind all of us shooters. I hope it all comes out well and am praying for the surviving twin.

Several years back a guy walked into a public range he had been at several times before, rented a pistol and put several rounds down range before he shot himself. It's not that usual of a story. I expect this being twin sisters and being from AUZ adds a twist but nothing more than a double suicide. BTW the guy I mentioned above was three lanes away from me. I have never felt at ease at a public range since, you just don't know who is in the next lane with a live firearm.

You were at the range when that guy killed himself? I'd have been very freaked!!
