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).
