Magnificent photograph

What a great image of a tragic subject.

Pregnant?

It looks like she was pregnant when they took the picture.

Yikes!

That is really creepy. I'm sure she had little to smile about. Who are those guys behind her in the doorway?

Scary!

Oh My Gosh!...She looks scary as hell...
