Tanya Shaffer No, I don't think so at all. I do think the impulse to hurt herself, and perhaps to be found, drove her closer and closer to the plant, but I don't at all think she commits suicide. I think she got the knife so that she could keep on cutting when the pain gets too great.
Donna Dean I think she wanted to be punished, so she went near the plant. Living was too hard for her.
