It was a sunny and peaceful day in Tampa, Florida when we received a call about a suicide.

A young woman who had just graduated from college who had her whole life ahead of her took her life when her long term boyfriend broke up with her. Apparently they were arguing about marriage and future plans when he decided to leave for a few days to cool off. She had slit her wrist in the bathtub and he discovered her body.

The boyfriend had went away for the weekend and talked to his girlfriend off and on during the week but noticed she was acting very detached and unemotional which worried him because she had suffered with depression before. She had told him that she was going to kill herself if he didn’t come home, he didn’t take it too serious given the fact she has said this multiple times before.

Suicide takes 40,000 American lives each year. It’s a serious issue that shouldn’t be ignored.

In this particular situation she had been dealing with depression off and on and a lot of emotional obstacles. She had just graduated college with her Master’s in Biology and planned to work with animals in Orlando.

The boyfriend came home late on Sunday evening when he noticed that something wasn’t right. He had a bad feeling from when he pulled up in the driveway to when he opened the front door. All the lights in the house were off and her car was in the garage which was odd since she worked nights at a local mall as a night auditor.

He mentioned to us that he started searching the house and found her lying in her own pool of blood in the master bathroom. He immediately called 911 and the police and EMT have arrived within minutes. They removed her body and concluded their investigation. That’s when the boyfriend called us. Advanced Bio Treatment specializes in crime scene cleanups. We clean up the mess left behind in a tragic circumstance.

When we arrived on the scene we made sure to bring all our advanced equipment and cleaners. The bathroom tub was stained with blood and we had to disinfect and deodorize at least five times before it looked good as new. We disposed of the shower curtain and bathroom rugs because they were so badly stained with blood. The boyfriend gave us permission to dispose of all items that were not salvageable.

During all of the commotion the boyfriend kept his calm, but we could tell he was really upset about everything. He mentioned to us that her family wasn’t in her life and that he didn’t know how to go about arranging her funeral. Advanced Bio Treatment respects all the grieving family members and we assured him that we would help with that as much as possible.

Advanced Bio Treatment is a reputable company and we take a great amount of pride in our trade. If you or someone you know needs a crime scene clean up service please call us 24/7.
