Cold December: Sgt. Spencer Kohlheim hangs himself in his grandmother’s garage after harrowing battles in Iraq and Afghanistan

September 10th, 2010

"One soldier's harrowing journey from the Iraqi battlefield to suicide"

Spencer hanged himself with his phone still displaying his ex-girlfriend's house number.

It was a cold December night, and the last of Sgt. Spencer Kohlheim's life. He was at the Detroit Street Bar with his brother, when he called his ex-girlfriend Krissy to come to meet him.  He was clearly intoxicated, she said, and he talked non-stop about getting back together.

“I told him being drunk one night in a bar is not going to solve it,” Krissy said. “He didn’t have any patience.  He thought if I said, okay, the problems would all go away.  He said he wanted to come home with me.  I told him my Dad didn’t approve of that.  He got in the truck with me and we started arguing.  I told him to get out and to call me in the morning.  He got out of the truck and punched the passenger side door.  I called my friend who was the bartender, and she told him to calm down before the cops came.  He said, ‘Call the ----ing cops, I don’t care!’  Then he went to his car and tried to give me his ATM card.  He said, ‘Take it, and you’ll be fine.’ I told him I didn’t need his money, I needed him to be okay.  He said, ‘I know, but I don’t know how to fix it.’”

“They denied me anyways,’ he said, ‘I have nowhere to go,’” Spencer told her. “Three days prior he called me at 1:00 a.m. in the morning and said he was going to kill himself, and I got up and went to his grandma’s.  He was passed out in his car in the driveway.”

12/09/10 CNN: Growing mental health problems in military

Mental problems send more men in the U.S. military to the hospital than any other cause, according to a new Pentagon report. And they are the second highest reason for hospitalization of women military personnel, behind conditions related to pregnancy.

fact is

some psychiatric drugs actually can turn people into mad, crazed, instant killers.

Lariam, marketed as an anti malarial drug by Roche, has been a common factor in the bloodstreams of several Marines who have
killed their wives.

People are trained to become unthinking killing machines obeying orders. Not everyone can suddenly turn it off.

US Army man's wife kills her children

An American mother has confessed to shooting dead her two teenage children in the state of Florida and is being charged with two counts of first degree murder.


Police were alerted when the suspect's mother in Texas told police she was unable to reach her family in Florida.

50-year-old Julie Schenecker was found at her home in New Tampa by police covered in blood -- with her 13-year-old son shot dead in the car in the family's garage, and her 16-year-old daughter in an upstairs room.

The Herald and Weekly Times reported that Schenecker shot her son, Powers Beau Schenecker, twice in the head while driving back to their home on Thursday night. She then proceeded to shoot her daughter, Calyx Powers Schenecker, upon arriving home.

Police said Schenecker has confessed that she killed her children because, "they talked back, they were mouthy."

She had reportedly left a detail note specifying that she planned to commit suicide after killing her children.

Schenecker -- the wife of a colonel in the US Army intelligence who was in Qatar -- has since been hospitalized after being taken to the Hillsborough County Jail to be charged, AFP stated.

"Killing their children and then committing suicide is common," says Kathleen Heide, a professor of criminology at the University of South Florida.

"This is a sign of overwhelming despair. They usually have a major depression with psychosis," The Tampa Tribune quoted Heide as saying.
