Murder-suicide prompted by medical expenses


This happened near me, between here and Bellingham.

Elderly couple found dead from murder-suicide after they couldn’t afford wife’s healthcare

Quote:
A man in Washington state has killed both himself and his wife after raising fears about struggling to pay medical expenses for her ongoing health conditions....

Several notes were left in the home “citing severe ongoing medical problems with the wife and expressing concerns that the couple did not have sufficient resources to pay for medical care”, according to the sheriff’s statement.

[NB: The video in the article is a different occurrence, in California.]

There are things that should not be for-profit. Healthcare is one of them.
