You feel bad for those who had to witness such an event? What an ignorant comment. How about you feel so bad for Carrie who felt there was no other solution?

Why did State Farm employee Carrie Butler end her life by jumping from the 4th floor of the State Farm Corporate HQ in the atrium? Does anyone know why she did it? What happened?

Need Answers

Also, who was the 21 year old man that jumped in 2001? What was the story there?

There are no apparent details about why this young woman jumped.

The 21 year old man who jumped in 2001 was Brian Otey. He had an "incident" the previous day, ranting about nonsense in the atrium. There are few details about why he jumped aside from the obvious fact that he was upset/disturbed.

Her department was told they would be relocating. State farm is closing offices around the country and giving employees two weeks notice or forcing them to relocate at their own expense. The powers that be are breeding fear and unrest from corporate to the zones all because they want to avoid taxes. Hopefully this will allow them to reconsider their future treatment of their employees.

The young man that jumped to his death in 2001 left a suicide note stating that he was "tired of lying to people about claims".

Before people post nonsense about relocating and jumping to there death because of lying to customers about claims so do some research. How about you let her poor parents grieve with out making crazy stories to add to there life. She had plenty of friends and was a well loved young woman!

That's why State Farm has their PR dept all over these posts. Because they "care". Ha.

Thank you Truth for posting again, and again. The truth does need to come out, and it will. As far as anyone knowing her, or her character, from this group,it is obvious that none of us do. Let this not turn into some ridiculousness, rather a place to ask and answer questions with the truth.
