Welp I got a new one.
I decided to poke around on the bowels of the internet (mostly using Google) trying to find a Canadian female friend of mine that I haven't seen on her usual online haunts since October of last year and I've known this chick for a good 10 years now and she helped me through A LOT of rough spots in my life in the time I've known her. Her usual haunts are Skype and Steam (at least the ones I can reach her on). Come out empty since my skills in searching for people on the net suck nuts.
Last I heard she was dealing with some legal bullshit which I don't really want to share publicly. Suffice to say the last convo I had with her about 6 months ago she was contemplating suicide if shit hit the fan. That line alone is why I'm concerned about this. I looked around the bowels a few months ago when she first went dark and came up empty-handed. Being in the states, I can't exactly look for her myself physically.
That said, I know its likely too late to do anything, and I frankly, fear the worst, I.E. She axed herself. This isn't the first time this happened to me, I just want to know what happened to my friend whom I consider family and a sister. If she's dead, so be it, but it'll at least give me closure.
And before you ask, yes I attempted to get a phone# and other contact info out of her (I even gave her mine) in case something like this happened, and she wouldn't budge. With the other two cases of my best friends committing suicide, in both instances, I had their contact info and social media pages, I don't have those with her despite my insistence that I get them, she wouldn't budge, so I didn't push it anymore, annd here I am now.
