In light of some of the information being released to the public, I feel less inclined to assume that Erica Blasberg’s doctor friend – Dr. Thomas Hess – was directly related to her death. But I do find it interesting that Hess’s wife has left him since, despite his insistence that he and Erica Blasberg never entered into a sexual relationship. And despite Erica’s alleged history of dating married men.
It appears that only a few people were truly aware of the emotional struggles that Erica Blasberg was dealing with in her life, and sadly none of them were close enough to her to know that she was manically depressed the weekend she took her own life. There were some obvious signs that things were spiraling out of control, but no one took the time to pay close enough attention.
As with most senseless tragedies, there will always be doubts and lingering questions of how and why. In the end, only God knows.
