“According to emergency radio traffic, police and rescue rushed to reports of an overdose inside the Kennedy Compound, at 28 Marchant Ave, at about 2:32 p.m. this afternoon,” the newspaper reported.”According to radio transmissions, one of the first police officers on scene, an EMT and former ambulance worker, reported the patient was in cardiac arrest as he also immediately requested a supervisor to the scene.”

In 2016, she wrote about her struggle with depression for the Deerfield Scroll, the student newspaper of the Deerfield Academy.

“My sense of well-being was already compromised, and I totally lost it after someone I knew and loved broke serious sexual boundaries with me. I did the worst thing a victim can do, and I pretended it hadn’t happened. This all became too much, and I attempted to take my own life,” she wrote.

“Many people are suffering, but because many people feel uncomfortable talking about it, no one is aware of the sufferers. This leaves people feeling even more alone,” she explained. “We are all either struggling or know someone who is battling an illness; let’s come together to make our community more inclusive and comfortable.”
