The Economic Crisis: An American Tragedy
Anxiety disorders, depression, alcoholism, suicide and homocide – these are just a few of the emotional problems creeping up in the wake of the economic crisis sweeping the country.
If you need proof of
the toll it’s taking on Americans – look no further than the tragic story of Carlene Balderrama, Evon Pavey or Peter Bellington.
Carlene Balderrama, the 53-year old mother and wife from Taunton, Mass., fatally shot herself Tuesday just hours before her mortgage company was scheduled to auction her house off.
Police said she faxed a letter to the company saying that by the time they foreclosed on her house that day, she would be dead. Ironically, her body was still inside the house when interested buyers showed up at the auction around 5 p.m., according to Taunton police chief Raymond O'Berg.
