The Golden Suicides

Chris Keeley from Daily Dreamtime sent me this bizarre story about an American glitterati artist couple who separately committed suicide in July:

"When Theresa Duncan, 40, took her own life on July 10, followed a week later by her boyfriend, Jeremy Blake, 35, their friends were stunned and the press was fascinated: what had destroyed this glamorous couple, stars of New York’s multi-media art world, still madly in love after 12 years?"

Duncan and Blake believed they were being harassed by Scientologists. Were they just paranoid?

I went to Duncan's blog, The Wit of the Staircase, where there is a posthumous post (a ghost story) from Theresa Duncan, dated October 29. According to whoever is now editing the dead artist's blog, another is scheduled for New Year's Eve.
