Death at the Canberra Centre today 09/08/2008

By OzChick - 9 August 2008 25

I went to the Canberra Centre today and I saw a body (covered) in a stretcher being taken down the carpark ramp where Target is.

There were forensic police there and two firetrucks. A tarp was used to cover the passage way where the body was being taken to the car so that they were not in full view of the main street.

I was told by a person working at Target that the body had been there since 8am this morning and that they had closed off the entire carpark above Target. 

Does anyone have any idea what happened?

UPDATE: Unconfirmed reports have it as a suicide from the car park roof. If so our condolences go to family and friends of the departed.

What’s Your opinion?

Poor form, S4nta.

Both the family of the woman and her friends & workmates are still coming to terms with what was by all accounts, an unexpected event, one which is possibly a tragedy, or an accidental death.
And her workmates may read the site, who knows.

How about we save the ‘humour’ until either we know more, or go so far as not making jokes about a potential suicide?

Well done for doing it in the most public possible place so as to maximise the trauma to others.

That’s very unfortunate – and such a cruel end to a life. Rest in Peace.

Very sad.

I also hope nobody witnessed it, or if they did that they are given counselling – it’s not as pleasant thing to see happen.

OzChick 10:50 am 10 Aug 08

Wow, that is really sad…

That tallies with what I heard too. Police left about 3 o’clock. I doubt that there will be much in the press about it.
