A MUM has revealed her heartbreak after she registered her baby's birth and death on the same day. Sam Boatwright's daughter Emmy died aged just three weeks and two days on November 30, after doctors fought to keep her alive on a ventilator. View this post on Instagram Hi //✨ I’ve had quite a lot of new followers the last week or so ( thank you❤️) so I thought I would introduce myself 🤗 I’m Sam, my name on Instagram used to be ‘travellingsparkle’ because in 2016 I quit my job, packed up and went travelling for nearly 2 years. It was an amazing adventure! I got back September 2017 and Si and I started to date in November. By March 2018 I was pregnant (!) and Emmys due date was December 3rd. We were so excited. Little did Si and I know that that day we looked forward to for a long 8 months would be the day we would register Emmy’s birth and death. The irony makes me feel sick a little, or maybe not irony just what the day … [Read more...] about I registered my baby’s birth and death on the same day – after she lived for just three weeks

WABASHA, Minn. - In the weeks before Olympic cyclist Kelly Catlin killed herself, she felt her mind slipping.

In an email she sent to her family, a coach and a friend in January, she said her thoughts were "never-ending spinning, spinning, spinning" as if they were "never at rest, never at peace." She wrote that she cried about it, and that made her feel even worse. For years, Catlin, 23, was someone who took pride in holding back tears. Catlin told her sister, Christine, that seeking therapy meant she was weak and that she would rather suffer. She told her brother, Colin, that she thought she was going insane and she worried that she was a danger to others because she was filled with rage. She wrote that she was scared of dying. "What is it like to no longer have a mind?" she wrote in January, just days before a first suicide attempt. She answered the question. … [Read more...] about Olympic cyclist Kelly Catlin of Minnesota seemed destined for glory. Why did she die by suicide?

It was updated on Feb. 23, 2019] Nicole Lovell, 13, may have thought she was communicating with a friend on the Kik chat app. Instead, she may have found her killer.

It was updated on Dec. 29, 2018.] Matt Herren still struggles to make sense of what happened the night of Oct. 12, 2012, when his close friend, Ryan Poston, was killed. "I think about him every day," Herren said. "You don't think something like that is ever going to happen to someone you know." "Is there something I could've done that could've prevented that? And I know a lot of people in his life had to have felt the same way," Herren told "48 Hours" correspondent Peter Van Sant. How did things spiral so out of control between Ryan and his girlfriend, Shayna Hubers, that she shot him to death -- insisting it was to protect herself? "What was lost when your friend was shot and killed?" Van Sant asked Herren. "He's the type of person that you want in your life," he replied. "Not just a friend, but a loving son, a protective, adoring older brother." "He had … [Read more...] about New murder trial for Shayna Hubers: Why did she shoot Ryan Poston six times?
