I can’t stress how much I hate using airquotes or the phrase quote-un-quote. I’d rather superglue my face to the linoleum, but in this case the air-quotes in the headline fit too well.
We should always be suspicious about any suicide involving someone who has secrets to keep. It would be very easy to stage a suicide.
“Mr Holmes, 48, had gone missing two days earlier after telling his wife he was going out for a walk – just as Dr Kelly did before he was found dead at an Oxfordshire beauty spot in July 2003.”
“Police said there were no suspicious circumstances in the latest case but revealed that Dr Holmes had ‘recently been under a great deal of stress’.”
As if all of us have care free stress free lives? Stress is a normal part of most careers. For two friends to both succumb to the stress in such a way that they see no other way out than taking their own lives? Come on. Conspiracy, conspiracy. But those whom committed the crime of murdering these two need not worry. This will be forgotten soon enough and swept under the rug like so many other falsified suicides in the past. The world moves on and those whom profit from death continue to do so.
