According to court records, four years ago, the homeowner took out a loan against her house.
The home was appraised at $28,000. As of last year, she owed more than $45,000 on the loan.
I wish they could have done this a little earlier, but this still makes me happy:
Mortgage forgiven for woman, 90, who shot herself
I know I'm late to this story, and that it has been ultimately concluded, but I wonder at the message this sends... Shoot yourself and save your home!
It doesn't even have to be fatal! At least, not immediately.
