It was a murder/suicide that took the life of Whitney. Both her and her ex boyfriend had Lyme disease. Was it caused by the rage Lyme disease induces? It would be speculation to say so. This is the news story here. But a family friend sent this to us to post, as she was a precious member of our Lyme community so let’s focus on comforting her family and keeping her memory alive and not the “cause” of her death. Thank you.
