Warum begang Evelyn McHale Selbstmord?

Was war es, das die siebenundzwanzigjährige Evelyn McHale einen Monat vor ihrer geplanten Hochzeit (im Juni 1947) in den Tod getrieben hat?

I don’t want anyone in or out of my family to see any part of me. Could you destroy my body by cremation? I beg of you and my family – don’t have any service for me or remembrance for me. My fiance asked me to marry him in June. I don’t think I would make a good wife for anybody. He is much better off without me. Tell my father, I have too many of my mother’s tendencies.

Bin ich der einzige, den gerade der letzte Satz ihres Abschiedsbriefs am meisten schockiert?
