Sharon Lopatka’s internet-assisted suicide

Sharon Lopatka wanted to be strangled to death, so she met a man online who was willing to do it. Sharon told her husband she was going to visit friends, and left her Maryland home for North Carolina where her new friend Bobby Glass would end her life. On October 25,1996, police found Sharon’s body near Bobby’s home. The ligature marks on her neck suggested her violent death was what she’d asked for.
