Tragic Drug Death Turns Creepy

Last April, when 19-year old Rachel Clute died from an overdose, it was deemed a tragic accident. There were few details in the news, other than she had a heart attack outside of a rave. Subsequently, reports were that she died from a mixture of methamphetamine and ecstasy – a mixture that may have been in the same tablet, unknown to Ms. Clute.

It was tagged as an “ecstasy-related death” and joined about one a year we see here in Hawaii. The creepy part comes later…

There’s a site on the web devoted to obituaries. It’s called, MyDeathSpace.com and Rachel’s picture, along with the news report of the death, are posted. But there’s a link as well. A link to her FaceBook page, where the public version shows under her likes:

“Victoria's Secret, Kaneohe, Hawaii, Dubkonscious, FITTED Hawaii, Oahu Cruz by Night, Vans, RVCA, Yes I'm from Hawaii, No i don't live in a grass shack, RUDIFIED., Spencer's, Wonderland Entertainment Group, Cultural Blends, Healing Journey Massage, Karmaloop Kazbah”

It’s a little creepy to think people will be looking at the trivia you posted on your FaceBook page long after you are dead. But it may be a memorial in the same way that parents leave a child’s room undisturbed while they grieve.

We don’t find out that much about Rachel as a person – just the snippets she posted. Music she liked, Hello Kitty… nothing really profound. The real deal is told in the news story. That she graduated from Castle High School. That she was a sophomore at the University of Hawaii. The picture is of a beautiful young woman. She had two brothers.

No one deserves to die of a drug overdose. Someone who is out to have a good time and takes what society says is a “safe drug” deserves it even less. Too young, too sad.
