Dianne Williamson was up to her old tricks in her biweekly drivel column she writes for the Turtlegram and Gazette. This week she wasn’t posting naked pictures of tow drivers fixing her flat tire though. This time she was going after a cop whose girlfriend recently committed suicide with his service revolver. Her name was Alicia McFee, and her boyfriend is Worcester Police Officer Peter Gerardi, who has been on the force for less than a year, and is currently suspended with pay. They were dating for a while but things started going bad. Dianne interviews the girl’s mother, who is understandably upset, and blames the cop for having the firearm accessible to her daughter, who was distraught from all the fighting. Alicia’s own father committed suicide 10 years ago after suffering from combat related PTSD.
Things quickly went sour, however. The young couple fought frequently, often about money, and Tina McFee described Gerardi as “controlling and manipulative.” Texts to her mom in April show Alicia was making plans to leave. But her departure would take a devastating turn. The morning of May 13, at 9:42 a.m., she wrote notes on her Mac computer to Gerardi, her mother and her friends. Six minutes later, the pretty green-eyed blonde locked herself in the bathroom and fired a bullet into her temple with the loaded service weapon Gerardi kept in the nightstand drawer.
“I’m sorry I was never enough for you,” read her note to Gerardi, in part. “I’m sorry you couldn’t see through my pain enough to love me through it. And I’m sorry most of all for being the one you turned away when I needed you most … You hurt me by turning your back …”
Alicia met Gerardi through a mutual friend. But their relationship turned tumultuous after they moved in together, and she would confide their troubles to her mother, with whom she was close. Tina repeatedly urged her daughter to leave. Tina said Gerardi tried to separate her daughter from her friends and made her feel inadequate. He told her she needed a job and she felt isolated because he worked nights and slept days. Gerardi called her daughter “crazy” and she felt trapped, her mother said. In March, Alicia began seeing a psychiatrist.
The night before Alicia died, on May 12, her mother joined her and Gerardi and his mom at Yong Shing in Auburn, where the couple fought when Gerardi wouldn’t dance with her, Tina said. So Tina drove her daughter home about 10:30 p.m., and Gerardi came home three hours later and slept on the couch. The next morning, May 13, mother and daughter texted and Alicia said, “I’m not going near him.” Gerardi would later tell Tina McFee that Alicia wanted to talk and he suggested they talk later. He fell back to sleep, and about 9 a.m. he heard Alicia yell from upstairs, “So does this mean we’re over?” He said no, he would later recount to Tina.
At 9:27 a.m., Alicia disabled her iPhone, her mother said. Then she wrote the suicide notes. Then she went into the bathroom and ended her life. On the floor, police would find an empty pint of whiskey and two near-empty bottles of prescription pills.
Let me sum that up for you – it’s all the cop’s fault. That’s why she wrote this column. He’s an asshole who was mean to her, not a good boyfriend, and thus she had no choice but to end her life. Sure, she could’ve just broken up with him, but then Dianne wouldn’t be able to fulfill her weekly quota of going after the Trump demographic.
People actually came to us with this story when it happened two months ago. But because Turtleboy is a classy news organization we didn’t feel the need to exploit a suicide for page views. Was the cop wrong for having his gun so accessible? Yes, that’s against department rules and he will have to answer for that. But he probably trusted his girlfriend not to kill him or herself with the gun. Because who could ever see that coming?
However, according to Dianne the cop should have known she was about to do that. Even though she’s never expressed a desire to kill herself, and the fights they were having were basically the same kind of fights every married couple has had since the beginning of time. So he didn’t wanna dance with her at Yong Shins? Some guys just don’t like dancing. Maybe if he had just gotten his ass up and done the YMCA she’d be alive. That seems to be what Dianne is insinuating in her trashbag cop-hating column.
Anyway, we commented on her Facebook page about it and within minutes got this message back from her:
But here’s the thing – Dianne has been a HUGE turtle rider over the years. She used to write nice things like this all the time:
Not only that, she’s also messaged us INSANE things about working conditions at the Turtlegram and Gazette over the last few years. Stuff that will make your head explode. Stuff that will completely expose how the Turtlegram deals with Turtleboy. We’ve always kept it a secret because we assumed that Dianne was kind of on our team and she trusted that we wouldn’t do that to her. And we weren’t planning on it because we liked her. But she’s been shitting on our blog regularly and writing crazy shit like this to us.
So if she’s burning bridges and taken the gloves off, shouldn’t we? I’m not even kidding. We have like 10 blogs worth of shit on her. We could do a ten part series and it would completely expose all the inner workings of the Turtlegram that Dianne confided with us about. The question is – does this cross a line? I mean, we’d be completely betraying her confidence. But at the same time, if someone had all this shit on you, why would you poke the turtle? We never promised her we’d put her dear diary in the vault forever. So we will put it to turtle riders – should we air the private correspondance between Dianne Williamson and the Turtleboy staff?
