A very sad death. 25, her own mother dead and two small children. Awful.

I'm not going to make any assumptions but it's hard not to if you consider how her mother passed away.

Tragic.

so sad. i hope she hadn't fallen into her mother's wicked ways - every indication was that she'd reformed since the birth of her own children and was determined to be the exemplary mum that she'd never had.

I recognized the last name and figured she was Bob's child. She didn't get as much press over here (that i'm aware of). So sad. She had a rough life even if it seemed like she had it all. RIP . BTW what's up with the naming of Bob's kids? Wha? emoticon Fifi TrixieBelle, Peaches. What The? emoticon

Unexplained but not suspicious was the last news report I heard, which suggests they don't think it was suicide or an overdose.

Its called disposable income, and where do they put it, either snort coke up their nose or inject heroin between their toes, its sad.

a very close friend of mine died of a heroin overdose at a young age. he seemed to have it all as well - a burgeoning career as a painter, close friends, a great life - but addiction is a complex problem, made more complex still by the feeling of immortality that you have when you're in your twenties: 'overdoses kill other people but they won't kill me.'

Jane's death on Breaking Bad was probably the most emotional thing i've ever watched, horror, sadness and disgust were my main feelings, and that's just a TV drama. I thankfully have no personal experience of the f***ing evil thing

Back in the eighties and nineties, practically all my friends were using, some recreationally and some as full blown addicts. It all seemed pretty wild and was just part of the time, place, and lifestyle we were in. I was the weirdo who was friends with them even though i never touched heroin or anything else. One of my best friends, and one of the smartest and funniest people I knew, died of an overdose a few years after most people had wised up. I often think about how young he was and everything he missed out on.

the situation was exactly the same in the artistic community in montreal in the 90s, when i was living there. heroin was widely used as a recreational drug and most people were lucky enough to wise up and leave it behind without becoming hooked. those who did become addicts, however, often seemed to be the smartest, funniest, most talented ones.

this is my mate about two weeks before he died. that's me reflected in his glasses. we all knew he was using, but he was able to hide the full extent of his problems from even his closest friends, right until the very end.

Many of my friends enjoy MDMA & coke when we're out in some dirty London club, I spend a majority of my time holding their hair back as they force themselves throw up so they hit the high quicker, I don't understand how that can be considered a good night out... I'll never be one to understand what can cause someone to turn to drugs and I do feel for those that feel they have it so bad that they've no alternative. So many wasted lives

When I was in the force back in the 90's I saw families torn apart by the stuff, addicts do bad things to pay for a fix

A mate of mine from school, top in sports, good parents, had it all, now looks shocking
