    My condolences to her family. RIP. She probably didn’t mean to kill herself, just a cry for help that didn’t go as planned. RIP.

    @SunnyAutumnn: Why are you assuming this was a suicide? She could have had some undetected heart problem or even a cerebral hemorrhage. Whatever the reason, my condolences to the family.

    It is sad that she felt she had no other way out of her despair, whatever that may have been. It is sad for her, her family and all those friends she left behind because all they are left with is the pain with dealing with the loss. I always viewed suicide as the cowardly way out. Life is not easy for the majority of the population on this earth, but you deal with each problem as it comes at you. sometimes it can feel overwhelming and hopeless, but if there is life, there is always hope. I can’t imagine the pain her parents are dealing with. I wonder if she ever stopped to think what her act will do to those she loved. I hope she is at peace finally RIP

    No way did Gia hang herself period. This is something on the lines of murder. Someone did not want to loose her when they were about to.
    This is a gut feeling that stopped me in my tracks. I never heard of Gia before she died. I hope someone some place has the same feeling about this and can do something about it. Even if she is normally depressed it doesn’t mean she would hang herself. In that case it would be an overdose but come on… hanging?

    May she rest in peace. No one will ever know why Gia decided to take her own life. Being bipolar & suffering from depression i got to say that i know what it’s like to feel that suicide is ur only option. Until i was diagnosed & put on medications,i would think about taking my life everyday & i had attempted suicide a few times. Though i have to say that those who say it is “cowardly way out” shouldn’t be so quick to judge what other ppl do especially if u have no idea what their mental state is.
