Michelle Herndon seemed to have it all. She was nearing completion of her degree and had a bright future ahead of her. She was engaged to a wonderful man. She had a lot of plans for her future.
The only negatives for Michelle were her migraine headaches, which were excruciating. She had tried many medications and remedies, including alternative medications, without much success. Then she met Oliver O’Quinn, a new roommate of her best friend. Oliver was an ICU nurse at Shands Teaching Hospital, and he had a medication that could benefit Michelle: Propofol. This medication worked wonders for Michelle. The only problem was that Oliver was infatuated with Michelle, and when his affection was not reciprocated, it led to deadly consequences.
Join us at the quiet end for Murder by Injection, a discussion about the tragic death of Michelle Herndon.
Accepting a surgical anesthetic illegally from a nurse does sound irresponsible and irrational, but the level of pain during a migraine is so unbearable it causes irrational thoughts including what a relief it would surely be to die. Punching your head as hard as you can doesn’t even have any effect. Bless her – she was an easy mark for a maniac by just grasping for some relief. My gratitude is renewed that newer migraine prescriptions help mine. May I never take that for granted.
