ANTIDEPRESSANTS? Santa Rosa Man Stabs Himself While Driving




Santa Rosa driver dies of self-inflicted stab wounds – A 46 year old man has died of his self-inflicted wounds. While being pursued by CHP the man stabbed himself dozens of times before plowing into two other vehicles. The following is my posted comment on the case:

“The very first antidepressant-induced suicide attempt case I testified in was in Santa Rosa. The judge in the case was one of the finest I have gone before since I began testifying in the cases in 1992. Prozac was found to be the cause of the suicide attempt as these drugs have been found to be the cause of suicides and murders in thousands more similar tragedies since. You can find a small database here of about 5000 cases:

“From the reports of how this suicide took place you can almost bet it is another induced by an antidepressant. It was far from what most would consider a “typical” suicide. For someone to switch so drastically in behavior it must be either something like a brain tumor or caused by a chemical reaction. And considering the extremely widespread prescribing of antidepressants for absolutely anything, they would be the more likely cause.

“And you want to know who is going to pay for this? I know who should pay for all of it – a drug maker, but I also know how good they are at getting away with what their drugs do to people. When I did the Leeza Gibbons Show on mothers on antidepressants killing their children we were told as we stepped onto the stage that we could use the word “antidepressant” but we could not use the brand names of those drugs (Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Effexor, etc.) because of their advertisers. Now with that policy in mind check the advertising on your evening news and tell me if you really think you will hear much about the problems with antidepressant drugs.

“These drugs are the most similar in action we have seen to PCP – Angel Dust. No one would have been surprised by this man’s actions had they known someone had been secretly slipping him PCP daily.”

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!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. These reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!

Trial starts for Palmyra man accused of killing

By Steve Sharp

JEFFERSON – A Jefferson County judge began hearing the opening statements of attorneys this morning in the case of a Palmyra man who is charged with first-degree intentional homicide for the killing of his girlfriend last summer.

Prior to the opening statements, Branch II Circuit Court Judge William Hue worked out details of the bench trial with attorneys for defendant David Throm, 41, of Palmyra and the state of Wisconsin. The trial is expected to last through the end of this week with Hue returning a verdict as early as Friday afternoon or as late as next Monday morning, March 3.

Throm is charged with killing his live-in girlfriend, Colleen Ann Wilke, 39, of Palmyra, last summer. He remains held on a $1 million cash bond.

Throm fled to Minnesota following the death of the woman and had apparently failed in an apparent attempt to commit suicide by hanging himself from a tree at a rest stop along Interstate 90 near Faribault, Minn. Throm was also found with a suicide note that stated where Wilke’s body could be found in a marshy area of Palmyra. The body was then recovered by Jefferson County authorities.

At Daily Times press time this morning, Jefferson County District Attorney David Wambach was making his opening statement to the court. Wambach said that the case before the court this week “proves the old addage that themore things change, the more they stay the same.”

“We’re in an era of lap-top computers, automobiles, and high-techweaponry,” Wambach said, but he noted that Throm’s alleged crime harkens to man’s more primitive period, when physical size and strength were more important.

Wambach explained, using a visual presentation including photos of Wilke’s dead body, just how Throm went about killing her. Wambach noted that she sustained a cerebral hematoma, or fatal injury to her skull.

“She died at the hands of David Throm,” Wambach said, adding thatThrom had stated in days prior to the homicide that Wilke “should fear” him.

Wilke and Throm were not living together at the time of the murder because they had recently broken off their relationship.

The defense said today it plans to argue that Throm did not intend to kill Wilke and that his personality was affected by the mood-altering drug Paxil.
