As we all should expect, in the aftermath of yesterday's Capitol Hill scare — where a 34-year-old mother was gunned down by police officers after leading them on a reckless chase — people are looking for answers. They're looking for reasons as to why a seemingly normal mother and 'always happy' dental hygienist from Connecticut would do something like this.
The latest report might have an insight, and it's an explanation for that affects a whole lot of people at any given time:
Also known as the baby-blues, PP mostly affects mothers, but can actually affect fathers as well. In this case, Miriam Carey was believed to have been suffering from a severe form of it, as her 1-year-old was actually in the car at the time of the incident that ended Miriam's life.
This reveal has come from Miriam's own mother.
Here's what Idella Carey said about after the newborn arrived last August:
Placing blame after a suicide is a common coping mechanism for those who have lost a loved one, and unfortunately it's usually a personal kind of blame.
For Gia Allemand's mom Donna, though, she's putting the blame for her daughter's suicide on two wildly specific sources: Gia's dad, and her MENSTRUATION.

We're still pretty worked up over the death of former Disney star Lee Thompson Young, as he had so much talent and sounded like a very passionate and caring person. We are so sad that he made the decision to take his own life.

Even more heartbreaking news…
According to sources that were close to the recently deceased Lee Thompson Young, Lee had been suffering from depression in the weeks leading up to his apparent suicide that's shocked us all.

The troublemaker was forced to cancel a string of concerts after suffering from a scary seizure due to "intense fatique and extreme emotional stress," but thankfully, the uplifting voice of Alanis Morissette is there to get him through!
The rapper was turned onto Alanis' old school tunes to combat his depression by none other than on-again, off-again GF Karrueche Tran.
He sure has some eclectic music taste! LOLz!!
