…about two years ago, [she] got in touch with the retired Hartford police detective.

“She started to reach out to me and sent me an email,” he said. “I think she Facebook-stalked me, is what she calls it.”

“Honestly, a lump came in my throat,” [he] said, describing how he felt when he received the first message from [her]. “It was kind of cool, you know, that somebody would even remember you from that long ago. I mean, I always remembered her. There’s a picture on my desk that her mom gave me a year or two after [on] one of her birthdays.”

This Roller Coaster Will Literally Kill You

Here’s how the world’s oddest suicide method would work: First the rider would face a long, slow climb up to more than 500 meters, giving him or her a few minutes to think back on life and contemplate the decision. At the top, there would be time to say a prayer or blow a kiss to relatives (or bail) before pressing the “fall” button and plummeting into the long steep plunge followed by the first 360-degree loop. That’s where most riders would die. According to Urbonas, traveling at 100 meters per second, the person would experience a G-force-induced loss of consciousness due to cerebral hypoxia (lack of oxygen reaching the brain), which often causes a sense of euphoria. Just in case that first one didn’t do it, six more consecutive loops would finish the job. Building the structure would be a challenge. The Euthanasia Coaster would be more than three times the height of the world’s tallest roller coaster, the Kingda Ka, which took 18 months and $25 million to construct.
