This is just too tragic.
The bodies of two young lesbians have been found, after they left their families good-bye phonecalls and went missing about a week ago. It's believed that they purposely overdosed on prescription pills.
Jeanine Blanchette, 21, and Chantal Dube, 17, had been together since February, and although Jeanine's mother Ellen claims that her daughter's sexuality had nothing to do with her death, that she'd been suffering from mental health problems since she was 15.
Ellen is now upset with authorities, whom she believes did not take the investigation seriously, DESPITE finding her daughter's computer with a wiped memory and receipts for hundreds of antipsychotic prescriptions.
“I thought they were on top of it. We put complete faith in the police, and that failed. They shook it off like it was an attention-grabber. I wanted them to get moving. I knew if they took the pills they only had umpteen hours to get pumped.”
In a bizarre twist, Ellen, who was frustrated with the police investigation, contacted psychic Sandra Mae Shaw, who located the girls's whereabouts.
“I just got this vision in my head of two girls in a field laying beside each other. Of course, it’s very difficult. You don’t want to tell them that their loved one is gone. I said to (Ellen), you just tell police to look in the field close to her home. She’s there. I know she is.”
Their bodies were uncovered in a wooded clearing, near the building that the two women had met in a group-therapy session.
This is so unbelievably tragic. It sounds like both these young women suffered quite a bit from depression, and it breaks our heart that despite their best efforts, they couldn't find the strength in themselves or each other to hold on.
Our thoughts go out to the families and loves ones of both young women. Absolutely devastating.
And to all the young men and women out there who feel sad, confused, and alone - please talk to someone. No matter how hard it gets, things CAN and WILL get better.
