missing grad student found dead, suicide a possibility

Stanford EE grad student and MIT class of 2004 graduate Mengyao "May" Zhou was found dead last night in the trunk of her car. The police have not found any evidence of foul play, and consider suicide a possibility due to some other objects found in the car.

This reminds me of the grad student friend of Pepper White (The Idea Factory) who killed herself in her car by asphyxiation.

I knew an MIT undergraduate who committed suicide in his dorm room. I didn't know him very well, however. He lived in Next House. I saw him occasionally when I ate in the Next House dining hall. He didn't say much, but when he spoke it was usually some cynical comment. No one who knew him thought he was suicidal.
