    Seems the most likely outcome...though I'd like to hope she just had enough of the cold and took an unscheduled trip to Hawaii.

    This appears to be an infrastructure issue.  Surely something could have been done to improve safety after the first incident at that spot.  After two such accidents it must be.

    As for the gun question...if it was a crime, your average criminal doesn't wait around in a low traffic area in the middle of the night in the freezing cold in case a victim just happens along.

    It would have been someone expecting her and almost certainly someone she knew.

    Making it seem highly unlikely that she would have gotten the drop on them first...or even recognized the danger.

    I am sorry for this woman, her family and her friends should the worst be found.  And I am sorry for the diarist who was clearly upset by the incident.

    But guns and this...seems like we're talking apples and streetcars here.
