Those parents are really crazy. Did anyone catch the added report at the end where the mom accuses the drug dealer boyfriend of arranging Colleen's death? The mom knows that Colleen's friend from Minnesota was in the next room when Colleen was shot, there was no one else in the house, She says that Colleen's fingerprints weren't on the gun. Why would they even look for fingerprints on the gun?

I think the whole family is just allergic to reality.

Did anyone catch the gruesomely tasteless gunfire noise Entertainment Tonight decided to use in their intro? Listen to it at around 52:51.

Who the hell thought that would be a good idea?

She took a whole bottle of pills. We thought it was because she wanted attention. So we ignored her.

I keep watching this thing over and over again. I feel sorry for the parents. They don't deserve what happened. But this crap about "how did she lose her way" is just crap. She was a broken child who couldn't handle taking care of herself, and no one was equipped to help her. Porn doesn't really have that much to do with it, except that porn is where broken children often end up.

I agree with you for the most part, they seemed like a couple of real assholes

I don't want to be too hard on them. They're just crazy people like their daughter, and they're suffering like she did.

And I don't want to defend porn. Overall, porn is... NOT a good thing! But porn didn't kill Colleen. She killed herself.

Porn didn't save her, but it wasn't supposed to. Her family was supposed to save her, and they couldn't. The mental health profession was supposed to save her, and couldn't. That's the real story, and telling it might teach us something useful, but its not the phoney baloney story that the reporter really wants to report, with the obviously staged shot of him walking down the street looking at Colleen's things, and his horrible "Wizard of Oz" analogy at the end.

I posted this in response to:

Someone quotes a YouTube idiot:

"for crying out loud, they were pornstars. They were already dead inside.

Who in this documentary seems "dead inside", if not those overly reserve4d, emotionally distant parents?

At 9:50, it looks and sounds as if the first suicide attempt actually took place at the phone company. She swallowed the pills AT WORK. That's fucking hardcore, in my opinion. The amazing thing is that EVEN AFTER THE SUICIDE the mother still doesn't think that original attempt, the one where the ambulance came and took Colleen from her job to the emergency room, was anything serious... and then she stops short, and starts to reconsider. Maybe it was "the beginning of the problem".

To be fair, even the drug dealer boyfriend, who seems far more conscious and aware than the parents, didn't take the suicide attempt all that seriously even when he had to wrestle the cocked gun out of her hand. Colleen probably just didn't seem like the type.

I remember reading accounts from friends of Kurt Cobain. If anybody ever seemed suicidal, right? But people don't want to believe that somebody they know and care about could actually do that to themselves.

That joke is so old, it has whiskers!

When your kid tries to kill herself and you're still not paying attention to her maybe it's time to consider she really does need a little goddamn attention.

I'm glad I wasn't raised in small town America.
