Hatch death ruled a suicide

August 26, 2009

After a 10-month investigation, the death of Kimberly R. Hatch has been ruled to be a suicide.Advertisement

The 40-year-old woman was found dead in her house at 704 Shady Drive, Endwell on Oct. 11 of last year after troopers responded to a 911 call.

The results of an autopsy and toxicological examination have determined the cause of death to be from respiratory suppression with pulmonary edema, secondary to a drug overdose, a release from the state police says.

The drugs present that caused the overdose were determined to be Celexa and Effexor, medications prescribed for depression and anxiety, the release adds. Alcohol was also present.

Dr. James Hayes, the coroner in the case, has ruled the death to be a suicide, said Cpt. James E. Barnes, of the state police.

Hayes said the investigation took 10 months because police had to consider all aspects in the case, consult with the district attorney and coroner’s offices and brief the family on the developments.

The case is now closed, the release says

She has specialized since 1990 in adverse reactions to serotonergic medications (such as Prozac, Sarafem, Zoloft, Paxil, Luvox, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, Serzone, Remeron, Anafranil, Fen-Phen, Redux and Meridia as well as the new atypical antipsychotics Zyprexa, Geodon, Seroquel and Abilify), as well as pain killers, and has testified before the FDA and congressional subcommittee members on antidepressants.

WITHDRAWAL WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

WITHDRAWAL HELP: You can find the hour and a half long CD on safe and effective withdrawal helps here: store.drugawareness.org And if you need additional consultations with Ann Blake-Tracy, you can book one at www.drugawareness.org or sign up for one of the memberships for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness which includes free consultations as one of the benefits of that particular membership plan. You can even get a whole month of access to the withdrawal CD with tips on rebuilding after the meds, all six of my DVDs, hundreds of radio interviews, lectures, TV interviews I have done over the years PLUS my book on antidepressants with more information than you will find anywhere else for only $30 membership for a month (that is only $5 more than the book alone would cost) at www.drugawareness.org. (Definitely the best option to save outrageous postage charges for those out of the country!)
