Couple agree to jointly commit suicide but this happened!

A woman who died in a suicide pact with her boyfriend left a note in her
diary begging people not to blame her partner –  who survived.
David Cole stole gas canisters and £11,000 from the pub he worked at in
Bromsgrove so that he and girlfriend Leonie Roberts, 28, could live out
their last days in style.

According to Mailonline, they bought a car for £2,000 and went to London
where they went to the zoo, gambled in a casino and stayed in a hotel.
They then drove until they ran out of petrol on the A387 near Loe.

The couple, who had made the suicide pact days before, then sat down
together and let off the canisters.But despite experts saying they could
release enough gas to kill someone very quickly, Cole, 36, survived the
toxic dose, for reasons that remain unclear.
People spotted the car with steamed up windows in the
layby the next day and when police investigated, he said ‘I might as
well tell you’, and went on to explain that Miss Roberts’ body was
wrapped up in bedding in the back.

Mechanical engineer David Teasdale told the coroner:

‘I cannot give any reason why the male survived and the female did not
if they both remained in the vehicle.’Three days before her death she
texted Cole to say ‘let’s kill ourselves together’.The diary revealed
she had ‘enjoyed the last few days of her life’ and praised Cole for
being ‘fantastic’ but hoped he would not ‘bottle out because her
decision was solid’.

The court heard only one of the canisters had its valve fully open and
he woke up the next day feeling sick and shaking.Cole was jailed for
four years after he admitted her manslaughter
