    Steve Bing killed himself last Monday by jumping from the 27th floor of his LA apartment building. Bing, 55, was introduced to Allexanne Mitchum, 28, by her aunt and before long they fell in love.Within a month, says Carrie Mitchum, an executive chef from Santa Barbara, they were living together. 'Watching themw as a tender and sweet experience,' she said. 'They held hands, he kissed her forehead, they giggled a lot. They hung out with friends including Ronnie Wood (above) and the Clintons. They decided to move away from Los Angeles and set up a home in Palm Springs. Steve was building Allexanne an art studio and was looking forward to starting a family with his girlfriend. Their love turned tragic after an argument a year ago. When they were apart. Alexanne took what she believed to be a Xanax pill that turned out to be laced with fentanyl causing Allexanne to overdose. Steve blamed himself for her death, her aunt said.

    Not to pile on the poor guy, but he looks like his gf's father, verging on grandfather. And don't give me that "old soul" and "young at heart" crap!

    Häää? How much whitewashing is going on with that guy?
    He questioned his paternity in public, throwing his babymomma Liz Hurley under a (media) bus.
    Alexanne took what she thought was a Xanax that was laced with fentanyl. Oh sure, the pharmacy made a mistake.
    Really, he was more or less known for being an asshole. The young woman overdosed on Fentanyl, which is tragic, happens far to often and should not be communicated/covered up like this.

    Damn, I'm grumpy today.

    ^I doubt it came from a pharmacy. You can buy opioids on the black market and not know they're laced with fentanyl. That's basically what killed Prince and Tom Petty.

    Can't help but think that many of those who jump to their deaths immediately regret it but there's no going back, ya know?

    Several weeks ago, a dog walker jumped off the 42nd floor of my friend's apartment building and literally went splat in front of an acquaintance on the sidewalk. She was very lucky to not have been hurt/killed.

    My friend was on her way out of the building 10 minutes later and security would not let her leave the building. And her eyes could not unsee the mess on the sidewalk.

    Interestingly, the local media did not report on the suicide.

    If you really can't bear to live in this world, there's got to be a kinder/gentler/less painful/traumatic way to exit. These people are so mean to themselves.

    When I was in high school I read "World According to Garp". And I remember there was this thing that characters would say when they departed - "Keep walking by the open windows." Basically, if you see one, don't be tempted to jump through it -- or keep your chin up, don't get too down. But one pivotal character succumbs.

    There is a really haunting video clip out there of a teen boy, who is talking to who I believe was his gf -- at a shopping mall. She says something to him, and he becomes so despondent, he climbs over the mall railing and swan dives backwards. He fell about 3 or four floors and died. People can have these really strong rushes of just unbelievable pain and desperation, and it's as if their consideration of the consequences is at only like 10% capacity.

    I had a failed suicide attempt when I was 22. At the time it seemed like the only way to escape the despair and depression. I remember waking up and panicking when I realized I had failed because I didn’t have any more pills and I wanted to die so I cut up a pillowcase to make a rope to hang myself but I couldn’t go through with it.

    I was lucky that I had a chance to change my mind and am happy to be alive. Makes me wonder if Steve Bing regretted his decision as soon as he jumped. What a horrible way to die.

    appollonia, I'm sorry that you were at that point once in your life. I'm hoping you have found peace in the years since. We're glad you're here

    I lost a family member to suicide and it's brutal. I used to wonder what he felt in those last moments. It's a bitch because I still sometimes play the "what if" game.

    Years ago, a man jumped off the top of a parking garage in the office complex where I worked. It was only 5, maybe 6, stories high. He jumped off the top of the stairwell to the concrete below. The police thought he did it the night before. He was found by people heading to the gym in the early hours of the morning. There was a perfect view of the area from my bosses corner office. I didn't look. I knew it was one of those things that I would never be able to unsee.

    I remember when an employee (or former employee?) jumped off the top of one of the casinos here in MS. I'm glad I never saw this.

    When I was as teenager I remember some family was in dire straits and they had like 6 kids and threw them off the balcony of a 12-story hotel. And one actually survived. I was transfixed with horror listening to the report. I'm afraid of heights, even though I go up and do work on my roof. It's one of the worst ways of ending things, in my opinion.

    i lived in an apartment building as a kid, 12th floor. when i was about 10, a guy jumped off the roof of the building right next to our apartment. i remember the police came and asked if someone from our family had just jumped, because a guy had just jumped off the roof of the building and we were the only apartment on the last floor. I guess he got through security in the lobby, went up the fire escape/stairs to the last floor and there were two doors. one into our apartment, which was always locked, and one door leading to the roof of the building.

    years later, i was in new york on vacation with my parents and we happened to walk by right after a guy jumped. they were putting a tarp over the body right as we got there.

    ew.

    that never happened to me but once when i was single, i lived in an apartment with about 8 units, maybe 4 floors. i heard a scream but didn't think much of it since it was a pretty urban area. a little while later, i was walking downstairs to the first floor to outside to go running, i saw cops. one was holding a large butcher's knife that was soaked in blood. i guess there was a husband/wife couple downstairs and the woman stabbed the man.

    what does this have to do with jumpers? no clue. i just had to add something!

    This is similar to me, I also had a failed suicide attempt at 22. I attempted to hang myself from a light fitting, but luckily I didn't really know much about weight distribution or how crappily the light fitting was installed, and ended up breaking it. I have had so many wonderful life experiences since then that I am beyond relieved. Any time I feel desperately low, I think to all of the times I would have missed if my attempt hadn't failed, and think of all the times I have to come if I just keep plugging away. Additionally, my mum found her dad after he successfully killed himself many years ago. I couldn't do that to her.

    I honestly had no reason to kill myself, other than a nasty depression that twisted every element of my life into sadness and dissatisfaction (I have led an incredibly blessed life and truly think I've gone through little hardship). Lockdown has been hard for me as I've been left with that voice and a lot less distractions. But I have started taking notice of my triggers and instead of resisting removing them, I've actively started to do just that. Last night I spent some time unfollowing models and actresses who obsessively post just selfies and airbrush everything. It doesn't help my low self-esteem and feeds the 'there's something clearly wrong with me if I look like this' voice. I honestly think I was addicted to making myself feel worse. So I feel pretty good about taking positive steps, FINALLY.
