Woman Left A Suicide Note For Parents, Police Found But Lost It.

It's a double-loss for two parents in Chicago who were devastated to learn that a year after their daughter’s death, the city’s police force destroyed the last note she ever wrote them.

Terry Porter’s daughter Nicole, 29, took her own life in February 2015, leaving behind two notes—one written to her parents, CBS Chicago reports.

Police took the letters into evidence, and ruled the death a suicide in May of that year.

But the case wasn’t officially closed until April 2016, at which point the detective notified Porter that she could collect the letter. When Porter and her husband went to pick up the note a month later, they learned it had been destroyed due to an administrative error.

“It was like everything was ripped right open again,” Porter told CBS Chicago. “It was the last ‘I love you’ she ever said to us.”

Porter would like Chicago police to review their policies to ensure this doesn’t happen to any other grieving families.

    I can feel their pain. The police are known for good record keeping. Whatever happened to the suicide note may not have been intended.

  39. I feel sorry for the family. How can a note that could have changed a few things about their loss get missing? Carelessless from police sometimes could be costlier that life itself.

    So sad, this is double suffering for the family.

  41. I visited various blogs however the audio feature for audio songs current
    at this website is in fact fabulous.

    Careless police.

  43. // August 14, 2016 at 4:27 am // Reply

    Police can be good and bad at times. We can only appreciate them for the good work done by the good eggs, and pretend we don’t know about the other bad eggs and their evil deeds if we can. But in this modern world, we can’t say yes when we mean no. So we go ahead and expose all of them bad cops.

  44. Thumbs up for the work you do here. I wish you the best.

  45. She had no reasons to commit suicide. The note wouldn’t mean a thing if she had been reasonable enough to keep her head no matter what the problem was. However, the police mistake isn’t something that shouls have hapened.

  46. Everyone makes mistakes though no one would police to be careless in this manner. Anyway, this is my first time visit at here and i am actually happy
    to read everthing at one place. Just want to tell you I enjoyed visiting your blog.

  47. I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one these days.

    Most bloggers feel scared to say how they feel about issues but you don’t. That’s one thing I admire about your writing.

  49. I felt sad reading about the family’s loss. But people should learn to stay around and solve their problems instead of comitting suicide.
