Woman Strangles Self With Handcuffs
This story is not only tragic it is very bizarre. Carol Ann Gotbaum was taken into custody for disorderly conduct in a Phoenix airport because she was running around screaming and yelling. Ok, we don't know what her problem was, but where it becomes bizarre is that she was placed in a holding cell in handcuffs. When a security officer went to check on her she was dead. Apparently she had tried to get out of her handcuffs by moving them from behind her to in front of her and ended up strangling herself. God, that's horrible! Sounds like she just lost it, period. Rest in peace, Carol Ann Gotbaum.
