Possible suicide at Hudson Tea

11/10/2008:

In bad news overheard on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire action channel – reports came in from the Hudson Tea Building (1500 Washington) – of a suicide in the building. A female called Hoboken Police, indicating that she came home and saw her roommate with a bag over her head.

It sounds strange that someone would take their own life via suffocation like that – and I’m wondering if foul play is involved.

[quote comment=”118862″]Point was, if you are going to say something was ‘covered up,’ but you didn’t ask anyone, then you can only speculate rather than state it definitively that it was covered up or hidden. If the newspapers called the cops and they refused to answer, then come on here and say it’s a cover up. If no one ever called or did research, then there’s not as much evidence of a cover up. If the reporter had the info the next day, not exactly a cover up.[/quote] Maybe you live in Pleasantville. But there are tons of crimes that remain covered-up in this town, and it is perfectly normal to assume that not everything is as it seems, remaining open to all possibilities. I understand why some people give up on their investigations. As an example, the last time I questioned the fire department about a particularly smoky matter, I was given the “all is fine” response. And that really sucked… because some of us actually care about our neighbors. Perhaps it’d have been easier for me to obtain answers if I had a Hoboken Reporter identification card to flip out for public view. But I didn’t (and I don’t). So, I agree wholeheartedly with homeworld; it is ultimately the police department’s job to dig into such a tragedy for clues and a cause. And it is the journalist’s job to feed the public with a story. A waltz into the police department downtown as a concerned resident with… Read more »

The only mention of a “cover-up” came from you.

I don’t think that anyone wrote anything offensive. It’s just that something like this is not an everyday occurrence in our town, and people have a right to ask questions. How else can anyone lend a hand somehow, or even protect themselves, otherwise?

No one’s asked for personal information, such as a name or date of birth or address. But other details would have been appreciated… if only to calm our residents. That’s all.[/quote]

As for the viaduct, the woman who passed away has a young daughter in town, a child, and i think the comments about the mother are pretty mean-spirited and callous. if you are concerned, do real research on your own just like with the suicide.[/quote]

I’m not a journalist, so that’s not my job to research. That’s what the newspapers are for. That’s like saying if someone breaks into your apartment it’s your job to gather clues and hunt down the suspect. That’s what the police are supposed to do.

That’s all.[/quote] The Reporter had a lot of details about it in an article in their paper today, and according to their article, they got their information from the police after an autopsy on Tuesday, so it’s not exactly a cover-up… For the last five days everyone here speculated instead of calling someone in authority to get the details like i guess the paper did days ago. I imagine it is the same with all the people who implied that the accident on the viaduct is a ‘cover up,’ when we ask them if who they called to get the information, suddenly they disappear. This site provided valuable information, but anyoine could have gone to the tea bldg or or called law enforcement if they wanted to know more, and apparently no one did followup to see what was… Read more »
