SAD STORY OUT OF SOUTH CAROLINA LOWCOUNTRY …

The mystery has been solved …

The two shooting victims whose bodies were discovered Thursday evening on the Arthur Ravenel Jr. bridge were participants in a double suicide – one officials referred to as a “complicated and somewhat unusual tragedy.”

In fact one of the individuals who took her own life, 24-year-old Lindsey Bedenk of Colorado, left a suicide note on Facebook just hours before setting off for the iconic structure.

Here’s her note …

Sad …

The other individual who took his life on the bridge was 30-year-old William Charles Best, Jr. – a native of the South Carolina Lowcountry.  According to authorities, the two met each other during mental health counseling.

Police said Bedenk and Best died of self-inflicted gunshot wounds – both apparently opened their mouths, inserted the gun barrel and pulled the trigger.

News of the deaths was exclusively reported by WCSC-TV 5 (CBS – Charleston, S.C.) reporter Meaghan Wallace – who had accurate information on the tragedy hours before other news outlets (and stuck by her reporting during several hours of chaotic uncertainty following the incident).

Sad! I hope things are better for them both on the other side. RIP.

I wonder if she spent much time watching this video beforehand.

suicide other than escaping a horrible death is just about as selfish an act one can commit, fuck um.

I have no understanding of what kind of mental pain would drive one to think dead is better. Just hope it never happens to any of my loved ones. Crushing for the parents of these two.

How the fuck would you know?. It’s so easy to sit back and judge others when you don’t know a damn thing about their journey and the depth of despair, pain, suffering and sense of hopelessness they must have felt. You are nothing more than a small minded jerk who hides behind a keyboard and spew stupid, hateful shit to make yourself feel bigger and important. Newsflash, bastard, you aren’t.

Yo asshole they choose to die there not for an audience. An audience always comes to get the body and there is nothing to be ashamed of in death.

I know how ugly the Internet can be when people can speak anonymously with impunity. I see it in the comments here. I just wonder what kind hell this world would be if people could act with the same impunity in their homes, schools and workplaces. We are already beginning to see it in politics.

Society has three methods of containing this evil. There is the law, social stigma, and personal ethical self regulation. The only one that the internet has is personal ethical self regulation. I can see that a significant percentage of the commenters here are hadicapped in that department.

We don’t judge these two individuals, especially based on the only act that we know them by. I believe that we really don’t understand mental illness and some can’t understand, others can understand why they took their lives, but we can all be understanding.

What a cold world we live in.

I truly hope that you, nor anyone that you care about, ever have to suffer from debilitating depression.

Amen. Really telling how much she loved those around her and how she still felt her life was beautiful, but it wasn’t enough for her to keep fighting. Just goes to show how powerful depression can be. When your mind is your own worst enemy there is no escape from it.

Have you been reading your comments lately? Calling people racists that don’t think like you?
You are correct however.An anonymous troll like you wouldn’t have the guts to look me in the eye and call me a racist and question my integrity.

I guess that is why you hide behind your keyboard and allege Will of being a liar and defaming his business and family.

Go to hell ya hypocritical pussy.
