Amber Hilberling, who was convicted of 2nd degree murder for pushing her husband out of their 25th floor apartment building in 2013, committed suicide in October. She was 25 years old. She was found hanging from a prison bed.
Amber continually claimed that she was innocent and didn’t intentionally harm her husband, though the two had a volatile relationship.
When Dateline played Amber’s recorded police recording just after her husband’s tragic death, her emotions and words betrayed the story she wanted us to believe. It was actually horrifying to watch.
Amber tried to get media attention to get “free”. She went on the Dr. Phil show and was still actively writing media outlets. As a matter of fact, she wrote a letter and it was postmarked the day she committed suicide.
You can see the letter in a video here.
When psychopaths (I’m not saying she is or isn’t) feel trapped, they often do pull the plug.
I do not find her choice to take her life surprising.
Her parents, however, didn’t believe she was down and out–questioning if it was, indeed, a suicide. They say the letter she last wrote showed she still had hope.
However, her former attorney says she warned the prison twice before she died that she was, in fact, suicidal. In that same article, they list all of Amber’s misconduct in prison. It’s quite interesting.
Do you wonder what made me doubt Amber’s story? There was one big whopper she let out among many other behaviors and actions that sealed her fate. You can read my post here on Amber after seeing her story on Dateline NBC.
