This is sad and tragic.

Do you think there is more to this story?
Oh no... is it 3:36 again?

I disagree with that.

However, she is female. And clearly liking her body enough to appear in pornography. Have you ever seen a shotgun blast? Very messy. So... why would she mess up her body with suicide?

Females don't usually shoot themselves.

What interests me is she is wearing coloured contact lenses. It makes it harder to gague her eyes. Is this an MK death in some way?

Questions, questions.

Maybe a boyfriend or wannabe boyfriend did it. :dunno:
I remember the good old days, when 90+ year olds in nursing homes lived forever. Darn this pesky virus.

No.

For it to fit the details, he would have had to have k own about the shotgun, taken it without her knowing, called her, and persuaded to meet her at the lake. Then shoot her dead.

Given what was said at the report, she would need to be standing still, thus not expecting the shot. It is hard to hide a shotgun long enough to get close to her and kill her. Also, ballistics would be clear if she was murdered, necause of shot spread.

Why would she worry about how messy it is if she is gone?

Same would go with jumping off a cliff.

She probably didn't want to fail at overdosing ect.

Okay... so she went out specifically to buy a shotgun, drove out tp a remote place, and killed herself with that shotgun.

If you want to kill yourself, you use what is there. You don't go about shopping for stuff. Your mind is not in the right plce, and you would not be thinking like that.

How big is the shotgun?

Because the length would hamper the ability to put the barrel in the mouth, and pull the trigger.

She would need arms long enough to reach the trigger, and be able to fire the gun the wrong way. I think it is the Jeremy Bamber case that would be relevant here.

Questions, questions.

I think KoreBolt was making the same point as you by saying "there is more to it...no body buys a shotgun to kill themselves..." .

The obvious is that it ties teens to gun purchases and gun control related issue with the added emotion of her age and attractiveness. It also bring the use of the internet back into question by linking it to cyber bullying plus it links porn to teens and the web.

Obviously we don't know her background or anything about other issues in her life which may have had a direct affect on her personal mental health etc.

The points you make in your other post also make sense...women tend not to disfigure themselves when committing suicide, guns in female suicides aren't common, she would have had a real problem holding the shotgun to shot herself. Premeditated purchases of items like a gun aren't rational as most people would loom for readily and less conspicuous items. I'm not too sure about the gun laws in the USA, but I think there is a waiting time before you can walk out of the store with a gun. That may only apply to hand guns and not shot gins? The location also seems to be strange although I'm only going on the limited information with reference to the lake. What's the significance of the location to her personally? Most people tend to find a secluded and sheltered location to carry out the deed. What time of day did she supposedly kill herself?

Deficiently more to this story than meets the eye and it ticks a number of boxes for certain interest groups.

There is about three tones of pressure at the mussel of a shot gun with standard length barrel using an average sporting load.

The top example is of one of the more popular style of shot guns purchased in the states and I doubt a 16 year old girl could turn such a gun on herself successfully. The assault shotgun below would be more likely if she thought about it, but would that be the first choice to someone just going out to buy a tool for a job? We don't know what experience or knowledge she had of guns or how to handle them at this stage do we?

Thanks but your answer isn't clear to me. Can a person purchase a Shotgun and ammunition and then walk straight out the door with it?

You seem to be making assumptions! Facts would be more interesting and helpful when evaluate the actual circumstances.

The image that seems to be presented is of a loan girl sitting on the end of a jetty/pier looking out on a lake. That really doesn't seem like a realistic suicide scenario to me!? It suggests an attempt to frame my thoughts and draw on emotion (staged for effect). :think:

It seems far to theatrical to me someone commuting suicide generally goes about it with a degree of discretion. They wouldn't normally place themselves out in the open, and teetering on the edge of a jetty doesn't seem likely to be a first choice scenario for a disturbed teen. Maybe if it were a cry for help attempt which is highly unlikely, as using a gun doesn't leave much room for last minute salvation. If she were making a theatrical statement she would probably opt for something that would have a dramatic effect on those she viewed as her tormentors.

Another question that I haven't seen asked is why she considered taking part in pornography in the first place? Why would teens see that as an aspiration? These sorts of changes in cultural evolution are normally the result of State direction in pursuit of an objective in an agenda.

Why would they lie?


Well why do they lie about most things? Because they want to capitalise on the situation for political gain? I already pointed out some potential areas that would be served by this incident.

It seems that the Daily Mail article is inaccurate as to the date of the suicide. The most consistent date is the sixteenth of April.



16 = 1+6 = 7

4= 4

2014 = 2+0+1+4 = 7

7 4 7= 7+4+7= 18

1+8=9



Nine is an interesting number, as this is the numerological reason behind the so called '27 Club.'



The cover picture for her Facebook page is legs wearing red stilettos. This is significant, as this features consistently with those who have undergone OZ programming in MK-ULTRA conditioning. It also states that She also apparently had worked for Privilaged Model and Talent Management.



SOURCE:www.facebook.com/alyssa.funkee1



This is a modelling and talent agency that has been in operation for a decade or so, having worked with numerous companies, such as: A&F, Hugo Boss, Dolce & Gabana, Ralph Lauren, Polo, Gap and Sketchers. It is also claims to be the home for Miss Janice Dickinson, a supermodel.



SOURCE: privilegedmodels.com/about-us/4535016742



Also be sure to check out our parent site www.oryonmedia.com (the production, music & celebrity side of PMM).



Orion is the constellation associated with Osiris, the Egyptian god of death and resurrection.



Minnesota, Minneapolis

Main Headquarters/Studio:

7615 Washington Ave S.

Edina, MN 55439

United States

.



Edina is a small city that has now become a satellite piece to the city of Minneapolis. It is also in close proximity to where she lived. Of interest is the fact she lived in Washington county, which was named after George Washington, first president of the United States of America, and a high ranking Freemason. Also, the numerals in the address bear closer scrutiny.



7+6+1+5= 19= 1+9= 10= 1+0= 1



5+5+4+3+9= 26= 2+6= 8



At time of death, Alyssa was nineteen. The numeral eight is connected with resurrection and renewed life. Combine the two numerals, you gain nine. Numerology should always be considered and explored, it would seem.



As with the strange case of Peaches Geldof, and in other places, there is a computer connection possibly emerging.



SOURCE:en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EDINA



EDINA is a UK-based data centre (funded by the Joint Information Systems Committee - JISC), which provides data applications delivered over the Internet and aimed primarily at Higher Education staff and students in the United Kingdom.[1]

(In this context, a "data centre" is an organisation that provides a set of specific datasets which can either be downloaded, or accessed and manipulated directly over the Internet. The two other main UK-based data centres are MIMAS and the UKDA.)

It also conducts research and development (R&D) projects into the delivery of data across networks.







The purpose of this data centre is interesting. It should also be noted that the abusive tweets apparently were deleted by those who had produced them.



SOURCE:www.dailydot.com/lifestyle/alyssa-funke-casting-couch-porn-suicide/





In the video—still available on the porn site—Funke introduces herself as “Stella Ann” and says she plans to major in biology and become an anesthesiologist.



Apparently, however, Funke, who her family says suffered from depression, was much more wounded by the attacks than she let on. On April 16, a day after she posted her last tweet, she bought a shotgun and shot herself on her family’s boat, leaving behind her parents and nine siblings.



But only two weeks after the film had been posted online, Ms Funke drove to the family’s boat on Big Carnelia Lake and killed herself.





Stella

Ann is an intriguing name to develop.



SOURCE: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stella



Stella is the Latin and Italian word for "star".



This holds significance, but I cannot recall what at present.



SOURCE: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anne



Anne, alternatively spelled Ann is a form of the Latin female given name Anna. This in turn is a representation of the Hebrew Hannah or Hanani, meaning 'He has favoured me', the name of the mother of the prophet Samuel.[1] Anne is a common name in France.



Interestingly, there are two Pornography actresses that have a similar last name: Julia Ann, and Lisa Ann.





The Daily Mail article contains some interesting information.

SOPURCE:www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2637887/I-just-want-die-The-words-19-year-old-college-student-committed-suicide-weeks-starring-Casting-Couch-porn-bul...rmer-classmates.html





Melissa Funke, 36, of Stillwater, Minnesota, spoke to her daughter on April 17 only minutes before she committed suicide.

...

Alyssa Funke decided to take part in a sex video with a stranger in Las Vegas for website CastingCouch-X, using the name 'Stella Ann,' as a way of covering college expenses, her mother said - but she couldn't deal with the relentless bullying from former high school classmates that it resulted in.



'She said she was going to take a shower... and that she was upset from all the bullying,' Melissa Funke recalled. '[But] she is very… she wanted to come off as everything is fine when it is not.'

The teen acted as if life would go on, and put on a strong face for her mother before saying she loved her and hanging up the phone.




Only this time she texted 'I just want to die' to her mother after the conversation ended. Tragically Melissa Funke says she was shopping at the time and did not see the message until 20 minutes later.




Why would she want a shower? Showers cleanse and purify, removing dirt from the body. Also, there is an occasion when showers were associated with death, which was within the concentration camps operated by the Nazis in the Second World War. Also, why would she suddenly produce that text immediately after calling her mother? Could something said to her have triggered that response?

Also, she possessed a modelling career. Even if she had left one particular agency, she could have still continued to work, signing on to another company. It is illogical for a person to suddenly choose to acquire money through filming pornography.

Another problem with this situation is the fat that if the message was sent immediately after wards, her mother was quite likely still putting her phone away. How could she have not been aware, when she had just put her phone away to continue shopping? Her minds would have yet to re-task itself towards all of the activities needing to be accomplished from shopping.
Oh no... is it 3:36 again?

So she wasn't found in the open at the end of a jetty - in side a boat makes more sense. I'm not sure that she would have chosen the family boat if she had considered the effect it would have on her family? Especially given the method we are lead to believe she chose and the mess she would leave.It also seems highly unlikely that she would want to disfigure herself in the way she would as a result of such an act. The impression I got was that she was way too smart not to have consider all of those things.

Have they released any information about the model of the shotgun she apparently managed to successfully turned on herself?

She was only a small 5'1" tall teen ffs, even if she was fit from her sporting activities it seems quite a feat for a young woman to pull off unaided?

Did she have a modelling carrier before she decided to enter the world of pornography? In the conversation with the pornographer she states that she hadn't done any modelling work, even though she had been approached in the past. She said it would have effected her schooling or words to that effect.

She also gives the impression that she had a very modest upbringing, growing up with her mother, father and sisters. She also states that she is mixed race - her parents being African American and Native American.

She was definitely bright and had defined goals with a plan to achieve them. She seems like a well grounded and mature teen with loads of potential. Tragic story and her family must be totally devastated. The only upside might be the fact that other young women in similar circumstances may think twice before making a choice they may later regret.

Here are some states on firearm related suicide:

Source
Journal of Urban Health: Bulletin of the New York Academy of Medicine Vol. 79,No. 1,March 2002
(c) 2002 The New York Academy of Medicine


The Epidemiology of Firearm Suicide in the United States

Michael P. Romero and Garen J. Wintemute

...

METHODS

All data were obtained from the National Center for Health Statistics Mortality Files using CDC WONDER. 2 International Classification of Diseases, 9th revision (ICD-9), codes were used to identify firearm suicides (E955.0–E955.4), all suicides (E950.0–E959),and firearm homicides (E965.0–E965.4).All rates were unadjusted and expressed as deaths per 100,000 population per year. The year 1998 was the most recent for which data were available.

RESULTS

In 1998, 30,575 people committed suicide in the United States, a rate of 11.3 per 100,000 population. Suicide rates remained at approximately 12 per 100,000 throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Suicide was the nation’s eighth leading cause of death in 1998, and it was third among persons 15–24 years of age. Among all suicides in 1998, 57% (17,424) were committed with a firearm, making firearms the leading method of committing suicide, responsible for three times the number of suicides as the next leading method (Fig. 1).

In contrast to firearm suicides, in 1998 there were 11,798 firearm homicides in the United States, 32% fewer deaths than firearm suicides. Rates of firearm suicide and firearm homicide have differed markedly over the past two decades (Fig. 2). During 1980–1998, the annual rate of firearm suicide in the United States remained relatively constant, declining from its peak in 1990 at 7.6 per 100,000 to 6.4 per 100,000 in 1998, a difference of 1,461 deaths. The pattern was quite different for firearm homicides, which since 1980 have not outnumbered firearm suicides. Only during the peak of the homicide epidemic did firearm homicide rates approach those for firearm suicide

Rates of firearm suicide varied widely among individual states in 1998, with high rates of firearm suicide in the West and parts of the Middle South and relatively low rates for states in the Northeast and California (Fig. 3). There were exceptionally low rates in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, and Hawaii, all of which were under 3 per 100,000, as well as exceptionally high rates in Alaska and Nevada, nearly 14 per 100,000.Men committed the majority of firearm suicides (87%) and had a rate over 6.5 times that of women (11.4 and 1.7 per 100,000, respectively) in 1998. Rates for men and women changed little during the 1980s and 1990s, peaking for women in 1981 (2.3 per 100,000) and for men in 1990 (13.4 per 100,000) (Fig. 4). Similarly, the percentage of suicides involving firearms has changed little for men (60%) and women (< 40%), consistently making firearms the leading method of commit-ting suicide regardless of gender.

The rate of firearm suicide in 1998 increased with age, beginning at 6.7 per 100,000 among 15–24 year olds and reaching 14.6 per 100,000 among persons...

We are supposed to believe that 19 year old Alyssa Funke decided to commit suicide and then calmly took herself off to purchase a shotgun and ammunition? After which she heads off to the family boat, talks to her mother on the phone, says she is going to take a shower, prior to which she texts her mother back saying "I just want to die". She is talking about taking a shower prior to that text so one would assume she probably would have cleaned her self up prior to the act. That would probably take her 20 mins. And then she is going to create one almighty mess in the family boat while disfiguring herself?

It would be more believable if there happened to be a shotgun and cartridges on the family boat. You would think that most people make the decision and go for the nearest and easiest method to hand. They don't go shopping for a cumbersome shotgun, then take a trip and a shower prior to completing the task surely? If that's the case the sales person in the store must have picked up on the fact that she wasn't acting normally? How many 19 year old girls walk in to a store alone to purchase a shotgun and ammunition? I would imagine that most women that age would go with a friend that had some knowledge of guns. I assume she was alone as anyone with her would have been questioning her sanity!

She was studying biology and wanted to go on to be a anaesthesiologists! She was smart and obviously had access to medical and chemistry books, so it stands to reason that she could and probably would have looked for a cleaner less mutilating exit strategy?

There also seems to be no mention of her sounding drink or under the influence of drugs etc. so are we to assume she committed the deed stone cold sober?

Her mother was only around seventeen when she had Alyssa and she seems to have done a good job brining her up. So something must have pushed her in the wrong direction?

Something seems seriously off with this whole story.
