Jacksonville Tragedy

Jacksonville Tragedy Suicide Cleanup: There had been a lot of partying the weekend that Jane D. shot herself in the head. From the looks of the room, there had been several people drinking heavy and snorting cocaine in the new condo high rise unit. Ticket stubs and game memorabilia were all over the apartment, apparently there had been a big Jaguars game. All I know, I have seen a lot of shotgun suicides and murders but this one a horrible mess. The mattresses, pillows, sheets in the master bedroom were drenched in blood. There isn’t much else you can say to describe the scene of blood that is spattered all over from a self inflicted shot in the head. The pictures all over the room are of a beautiful brunette about 29 years old or so who seemed to have everything going for her. Blood cleanup must be done by…

Murder Suicide Death

Double Death The horrible picture above is only a glimpse of the scene we were called to in the Montgomery suburbs. No matter how many times we experience this it is still a shock to see. There’s a sickening smell that accompanies a blood soaked room. Some say that fresh blood has a metallic smell not unlike copper or rusting iron.

Some of these murder suicides…

Suicide of an Addict

It all started with a painkiller. J. Doe had suffered a knee injury and surgery didn’t seem to get rid of the pain. Doctors prescribed Oxycontin and countless other pain pills which did knock the pain but after awhile he was used to it and needed something stronger. At a party he was introduced to heroin which he instantly fell in love with. Heroin wasn’t hard to come by and he got it for much less than what he had been paying for pills. He had a problem with drinking in his early twenties and  had been going to AA meetings. The apartment had a few empty bottles of prescriptions for Subtex, also known as buprenorphine, a treatment for heroin addiction that is an alternative to methadone treatment. Also known as Suboxone, buprenorphine works by blocking the "high" users feel when they do heroin or opioid based pain killers. The…
