On 13th March 2013, a 44-year-old New York woman named Cynthia Wachenheim took her own life and attempted to take the life of her 10-month-old son.
Fortunately, baby Keston survived.
She thought those falls may have led to seizures and she thought that would affect her son for the rest of his life. “I love you. I’m making you suffer,” she wrote in the 13-page letter.
Wachenheim’s friends and family were shocked by the lawyer’s death. They described her as a “highly educated, socially conscious woman who had been active in a women’s group in her synagogue” who was on leave from her $120,000-a-year job as an attorney.
