There's sea cliffs near her home and the ocean currents flowed southward. That's what all reports are saying...Never like to hear of a death. In that regard it’s a sad ending but it sounds like she was well and truly snagged by her own undoings.
Suicide or murder? How far away from her home was she? How did she get there without being spotted?
Yeah, I'd be surprised if it was the probable prison term that drove her to suicide (if that is what has occurred). She probably wouldn't have gotten more than 6-7 years and was still relatively young.Sad news she put herself in a position of feeling cornered with no other choice. Bad news for the people who invested their life savings with her. Suicide might indicate there isn't a great bit pot of money stashed anywhere they can get at.
Sad outcome for all. Thoughts with her poor family. What happened to the money for the victims of her crimes? Hopefully more of her body can be found to help determine a cause of death and provide at least partial closure .
A lot of feet wash up apparently, across Canada and the US it was a real big mystery until someone did a study on why. It has to do with the way a body decomposes, the feet that are in runners are protected from the harsher elements and nibbling fish.Hmmm, something fishy going on here. Only a foot found?
It's the worst, saddest outcome of all possibilities for everybody involved, her family must be absolutely devastated and some of the people who have lost their retirement funds were a lifelong friend so they will have to try and reconcile that as well.Sad outcome for all. Thoughts with her poor family. What happened to the money for the victims of her crimes?

OT, but thanks Kurve. I'm adding this interesting factoid to my list of quirky resources I use in workshop facilitation to encourage people to analyse their assumptions underpinning their opinions and decisions, and to seek alternative explanations and solutions to problems.It turns out that in water, human bodies naturally disarticulate, or come apart at the joints, so hands and feet often disconnect from corpses after soaking in the ocean for a while.
“Feet easily disarticulate and when they are attached to a flotation device such as a running shoe, they are easily washed ashore,” wrote Gail Anderson, co-director of the Center for Forensic Research at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, in an email. “Notice there are no feet washing ashore in stiletto heels or flip-flops. Also, today’s running shoes are much more buoyant than in the past.”
Tennis shoes also keep decaying feet in a neat package rather than letting toes and heels disperse, and footwear protects feet from hungry sea creatures, which end up gnawing on other exposed areas like ankles instead.
