Just 3 weeks after Charles died by suicide, there was a family less than a mile away that also died by suicide. The same way. Death by hanging. His name was Drew Martin and at that time, I didn’t know his mom, Pat. But I know her now. We don’t think it was a copy cat incident for a number of reasons. Just a horrible coincidence.
From Pat Martin:
“I saw this carved in the sidewalk while walking around Lake Michigan. Not only did the initials stop me in my tracks because they were Drew’s, but the handwriting is so much like his writing, it’s scary!
He used DM to sign off and identify himself. I believe he was saying, “Hi Mom! I’m right here with you and I will always be with you in your heart. I see you Mom and I love you!”
