June 1, 2016

UPDATE. LAPD indicates two dead in apparent murder - suicide. Campus is declared safe.

If you or someone you know is reporting ANY of the symptoms of depression or hopelessness, please know your life matters. Call 1-800-273-TALK (8755) and speak to someone about it. Several of us at Crooks and Liars know firsthand what it means to lose someone to suicide. Please call.

The comment thread is closed and posts related to suicide are deleted not out of censorship, but out of respect for those who might find it triggering. We REALLY have been through this at C&L in our own families, and wish any of our readers to SEEK HELP immediately if they feel hopeless or as if they think they might harm themselves. Thanks for understanding.
