A 44-year-old woman apparently committed suicide Sunday by flinging herself off a cliff overlooking Dana Point Harbor. According to Orange County Sheriff's Lt. Jay Mendez, a passer-by spotted the woman about 3 p.m. on an outcropping near the bottom of the 200-foot cliff. "She had a note in her pocket apologizing to whoever found her for having to see her in such a state," Mendez said of the woman, believed to be a Mission Viejo resident. Her name was withheld, pending notification of relatives.

A woman leaped to her death Monday afternoon from cliffs in Rancho Palos Verdes, just 1/2 mile from the spot where two teenagers committed suicide last month, authorities said. Witnesses told sheriff's investigators they saw the woman, identified only as being in her 40s, on a ledge about 12:20 p.m. at Point Vicente Park and Interpretive Center before she fell 150 feet to the beach. "The park was full of people," said sheriff's Deputy Judy Gibson.

Women who drink caffeinated coffee are less likely to commit suicide than those who do not, suggests a study in the Archives of Internal Medicine, published in Chicago by the American Medical Assn. Its author, Dr. Ichiro Kawachi of Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, says the results may not be significant because doctors might have told depressed patients not to drink coffee, a factor that wasn't studied.

Two women killed themselves Tuesday with help from suicide-machine inventor Jack Kevorkian, hours before Michigan's governor signed a law that will temporarily ban assisted suicides. Both women, the seventh and eighth since 1990 to die with Kevorkian's help, had attended a news conference with him 12 days ago to protest the legislation. The state's lack of such a ban was cited when charges against Kevorkian were dropped in the first three deaths he aided.

The global economic crisis that has come to be known as the Great Recession appears to have fueled an increase in suicides, including an estimated 5,000 additional deaths in 2009, a new study says. Although previous research has linked the recession to higher suicide rates in various countries, no studies have tried to measure these effects on a global scale. So researchers at the University of Hong Kong and other institutions examined suicide trends in 54 countries around the world, using data on unemployment, gross domestic product and suicide deaths from the World Health Organization, the International Monetary Fund and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The police broke down the door looking for the grandmother. But she was out, so they took away two younger women and three little girls to face accusations of religious extremism and potential ties to terrorism.
