Rope Burn

Last weekend, my husband sold a lady a rope. On Tuesday, the police came by because she was reported missing. She had made her last purchase on her credit card there. Wednesday they found her abandoned car. Yesterday they found her hanging from a tree in Virginia. A suicide. She was 28.

    That's a serious burn. Though, you can't hold yourself responsible of the stupidity of another.

    That's really sad, but what people do with their rope is their business. :-(

    That is very sad. The people she left behind will be scarred for life. Takeing your own life is the most selfish act you can do.
    That also has to be creepy for your husband too.

    I think there should be a mandatory five-day waiting period for people buying rope.

    Can you think of a legal use for rope? Even if you're using it to climb, I bet someone's trying to look up your pants.

    I agree with Salil...but was the dead lady wearing panties? I bet the coroner was trying to look up her skirt.
