The 91-Year-Old Woman Selling $60 Suicide Kits

 

A shadowy online company selling suicide kits recently claimed its first confirmed victim. Winston Ross talks exclusively with the entrepreneur behind it: a grieving 91-year-old woman.

 

The paramedics who showed up to Nick Klonoski’s house on Highland Drive four months ago discovered the 29-year-old’s lifeless body, covered up to the neck by a blanket. It was his brother Jake, detectives learned, who’d found Nick lying in his bed less than an hour beforehand, a clear plastic bag over his head, and a plastic tube running from the bag to an orange metal helium tank. Next to the tank was a white box, decorated with a butterfly, the box the plastic bag and tube had arrived in the mail in, with a book titled Final Exit inside.

 

“Is it the book and the kit?” asked the first police officers to arrive on the scene. The paramedics nodded knowingly. “Yep.”

 

Each of the kits Hydorn assembles by hand is a simple contraption designed for a single purpose: people kill themselves with it by encasing their head in a bag of helium, which is lethal in pure form. People like Klonoski, the son of a U.S. district judge and whose funeral was attended by more than a thousand people. The Gladd Group’s estimated annual sales are $98,000. That means Sharlotte Hydorn sells more than 1,600 suicide kits every year.

 

“I’m too busy to cash the bloody checks,” she told The Daily Beast. “I haven’t made a deposit in three months.”

 

..... Oregon is moving to make it a felony to sell the kits.. read more here.

"the son of a U.S. district judge and whose funeral was attended by more than a thousand people"

 

Wow, good for you... I'm glad dead rich people still rely on popularity to be cool. "Well, my dead son had over a thousand people attend his funeral, SO THERE."

This is stupid...she started making and selling them because her husband died a really shitty death.

 

Okay, understandable that you support that death with dignity business, but making these kits available to every whiny dude whose girlfriend left him or who didn't get into an Ivy for college is misguided as can be...a "mercy killing" in a hospital via consenting euthanasia is one thing, encouraging suicide to every average motherfucker who is unhappy for this or that reason is entirely another...
