New York Woman Commits Suicide After Cryptic Facebook Posts


In a message posted last Tuesday, Dr. Michelle Larmache was adamant: "I cannot live this way."

Five days later, police found she indeed had no plans to.

According to the New York Post, the 52-year-old woman was found dead on Sunday in her apartment on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

A handwritten note asked her husband to "forgive her and explain what she had done."

The note followed a series of 10 eerie Facebook posts Lamarche had written in the three-day span between October 22 and 25.

In the first of those 10, the woman wrote,

30 years of marriage, an unreleased book and her relationship with her husband continued to be recurring themes throughout the series of posts.

In another post, Lamarche asked her friend to change her Facebook page into a memorial if the friend hadn't heard from her in a week.

She wrote,

Greta Bucher told the Post a friend of Lamarche asked the police to do a wellness check after she went silent for several days.

Police went to her home and entered Lamarche's bedroom, which was chained from the inside. Lamarche's body was on the bed, fully clothed and showing no apparent signs of trauma.

Bucher told the Post,

Police are considering her death to be a suicide.
