Tragic scheduled suicide note appears on woman’s Instagram days after death
December 27, 2020
A 24-year-old woman who killed herself days before Christmas scheduled a heartbreaking suicide note to appear on her Instagram a day later.
“If you’re reading this, I’m gone,” Yocheved Gourarie from Brooklyn, New York, wrote in the post.
“I hope you can find some comfort in knowing I am no longer in pain.”
On Tuesday, December 22, Gourarie, of Crown Heights, took the New York subway into Manhattan and bought a ticket to the Vessel, a popular tourist attraction.
She did not bring a suicide note, the New York Post reports, but had taken her “information making it easy to ascertain who to contact,” a law enforcement source told The Post.
She was later found dead with an EMS responding to the 911 call, before she was pronounced dead at the scene.
She scheduled her final Instagram message to post the next day.
“Hey…. I guess if you don’t know by now you should probably sit down,” she wrote.
“If you’re reading this, I’m gone. Either that or somehow incapacitated in the hospital so I can’t delete this scheduled post. I really hope I’m not though.

“I don’t care to go into the reasons why I’m gone, but there are certainly more than thirteen. I scheduled a note to send to my parents posthumously….Even just publishing this may pain them.
“I don’t want to do that, I just want to leave my last mark on this world.”
She added: “All of you have made my life so much more full, brighter, and happier than it would have been without you. Your support, your encouragement, your hugs, your invitations, your smiles, your texts, your tagging me in memes you think I’d find funny.
“None of you could have done anything – or done more – to prevent this from happening. You all did your absolute best and for that I am eternally grateful. I hope you can find some comfort in knowing I am no longer in pain.
“I love you.”
