"Inseparable" Couple Commits Joint Sucide

Don't fear the reaper and all, but one had less to worry about on that score than the other:

The bodies of Helen Godet and her caretaker of nine years, David Lund, were found Friday in the home they shared in the Bayview district near Monster Park.

They left notes dated Dec. 27 indicating that Lund had strangled the widow when she decided she couldn't take her own life, then swallowed a fatal dose of antifreeze, police said.

"She was supposed to drink the poison, but she could not do it,'' said Inspector Dennis Maffei of the homicide detail. "She did sign a suicide note -- it said that she wanted to kill herself. . . . It was just time.''

Most suicide pacts involve elderly couples in which at least one of the partners is in poor health, police said. "This was indeed different,'' Maffei said.

The relationship itself was an unlikely one, but those who knew the two said it was close and genuine.

Lund was 30. Helen Godet was 106.

Via Football Fans For Truth, which pronouces, with good reason, Oliver Stone's Alexander to be the gayest film ever made, and that includes both To Wong Fu With Love, Signed, Julie Newmar and the Village People's Can't Stop The Music.

Not even Rosario Dawson's naked kazungas can de-homofy this movie.
