    the girl didn’t even drink. your ignorance is not appreciated. her and her boyfriend were taking pictures of the boston skyline. realize that this was a young woman who went through something you could never come close to imagining. drugs or alcohol were not a factor whatsoever, only tragedy. her family is grieving enough as it is, and people like you are not helping. think before you speak.

    she wanted pictures of the city because she was going to washington state the next week. THATS WHY THEY WERE ON THE ROOF.
