Woman Commits Suicide to Avoid Eviction:
Newnam documented her life on Twitter as user rsangel04. Her last post on June 24 read, "Rich get richer, poor get poorer, families on the street, govt doesn't care. God bless the USA, but can He save it?" Ref. Source 4
Man thats sad. I hope the bank or whomever are happy with what theyve done to the poor lady. People just like money over life.

Homeowners Facing Foreclosure Take Own Lives:
The foreclosure crisis in Philadelphia is now becoming a matter of life and death. Eyewitness News has learned that in the past month, two homeowners took their own lives before sheriff's deputies arrived to tell them that they were being evicted. Ref. Source 5
The home situation is still getting worse. We need real help for some families and not another cash bonus to big bankers who just pocket it and leave the home owners high and dry.
Its so sad a world that people have to reach this stage in making their decisions about how to deal with their problems- taking their own life.
