After reading “Why did Yeardley Love have to die?”, I was left speechless. I could not believe that a young woman’s life was taken, by her own ex-boyfriend. The weirdest part is that George Huguely, the killer/ ex-boyfriend, admitted to assaulting Love. Whether he was going into this situation with killing her or just beating her, she is now dead. As I continued to read, I kept hearing about how both Love and Huguely were apart of lacrosse teams at their college.

Friar Lawrence then fled from the room to escape the police. When the Friar later returned, Juliet Montague had killed herself with a dagger. The Friar was earlier overheard saying: ‘Young Juliet is alive For whose dear sake though Wast but lately dead’ Juliet- ‘what if it be poison which the Friar Subtly hath ministered to have me dead’ Friar Lawrence had a reasonable motive in this case, as he did not approve of the marriage or Romeo and Juliet which could have resulted in the suicides being encouraged by Friar Lawrence. As shown in this report, several suspects could have been the cause of Romeo and Juliet’s suicides.
