Woman Jumps to Her Death from Aventura Mall Parking Garage: Third Suicide in a Month

(MIAMI NEW TIMES)   For the third time in a month, a person has committed suicide at Aventura Mall. A still unidentified Hispanic woman in her mid-40s jumped to her death from atop a parking garage at the nation’s fifth largest shopping mall yesterday afternoon at around 2:30.

According to the Miami Herald, a witness saw the woman preparing to jump but failed to talk her out of taking her life. Authorities have not yet been able to identify the woman. She was carrying no forms of identification, and her finger prints were not in a database.

“If somebody wants to kill themselves… there’s no rhyme no reason,” Aventura Police Major Skip Washa told Huffington Post Miami. “There’s no way to really try to prevent that.”

It’s the third suicide at the mall in less than a month.

On March 14, 21-year-old Morvin Andre leaped to his death while trying to evade loss prevention officers outside of the mall’s Bloomingdale’s store. That death was ruled a suicide.

On March 19, a 15-year-old boy jumped to his death from atop a parking garage at 1:10 in the morning.

Before this month, the mall had only seen one other suicide in its nearly 27-year history. Back in 2007, 19-year-old Daniel De Jesus Cespedes jumped off a parking garage while trying to evade police. Cespedes, the former boyfriend of MySpace “celebrity” Kiki Kanibal, was being arrested for dating a 14-year-old. He tried to jump onto the top of a moving van, but hit the concrete and later died in the hospital.
