Woman shoots self in Martin's parking lot

June 15, 2012

PLYMOUTH — An unidentified woman shot herself this morning in the parking lot of the Plymouth Martin's Supermarket.
Mike Smith was leaving the store around 9:30 a.m. when he noticed what looked like a woman sleeping in her car. He then noticed that she had a gun propped between her legs pointing at herself. Smith approached another shopper in the parking lot, Jamie Paxton, and asked him to call 911 because he believed the woman had shot herself.
"(Smith) walked up and asked if anyone had a phone," said Paxton, who was shopping with his wife and two young sons. "Before he finished talking I jumped out of my car and went over (to the woman's vehicle). I checked for a pulse but her throat was already tight and swollen...I think she might have (shot herself) earlier this morning, before the store opened."
Paxton said that the woman appeared to be in her mid-40s. He called 911, and said that Plymouth Police officers were on the scene within two minutes.
Plymouth Police Chief Jim Cox said that beyond the vehicle's New York license plate and the woman's driver's license, they had no other information about the woman or clues as to how to contact her family. He also said that they could not tell at what time the woman had actually shot herself.
Marshall County Coroner Bill Cleavenger was called and further information will be released as it is available.

Kat was a wonderful woman...warm, friendly, loving, hard working, a talented creative designer and illustrator. We worked together on projects on and off for Kodak and other companies from time to time and no matter how tight the deadline or difficult it was to acocmplish with her family responsibilities, she would make you laugh within 5 minutes of the beginning of the meeting and produce what was needed in amazing time, even if it meant staying up 1/2 the night after the children were asleep to have the electronic copy of the deliverable ready for pick up at her door by 6am the next day.
She loved, forgave, cared for children who had no one else, accepted people for who they were and where they were in their ife's journey, was a devout church goer, and believer in God.
He life was a blessing to all who met or knew her.
May you rest in eternal peace my friend, and may that peace be with your family as well.

What a terrible thing for this women to have felt like this was the answer to her problems. I feel so bad for her family and what they are going through. No one knows what goes through a persons mind to do this. I do know first hand that it really affects the whole family when something like this happens. My thoughts are with her family. RIP Kathleen
