beautiful suicide (1947) by robert c. wiles. at the bottom of the empire state building, the body of 23-year-old evelyn mchale reposes calmly in a grotesque bier. still clutching a pearl necklace, evelyn looks disarmingly placid & composed, as if simply asleep. around her, the broken glass & crumpled sheet metal of the car roof show the brutally destructive evidence of her 1050 ft jump. til today, the photo still remains as haunting & affecting as when it was first published.
