Nearly one month after the Las Vegas shooting, three of the individuals who attended the Route 91 Harvest music festival have lost their lives—but the circumstances that led up their deaths had nothing to do with injuries they sustained during the shooting.
According to a report, 28-year-old Kymberley Suchomel died at her home in Apple Valley, California, just one week after the massacre. While the official cause of her death was not immediately released, her grandmother told the Victorville Daily Press that she appeared to have died in her sleep.
"Kymberley had epilepsy and she's always been prone to seizures — she told her friend that she recently had three focal seizures," Julie Norton said. "I believe the stress from the shooting took her life."
The day after the shooting, Suchomel recounted the horrific details to the Daily Press. Although she miraculously escaped from the chaotic scene with no injuries, she said, "I might have escaped unharmed, but I know that I've been emotionally and mentally scarred for life."
"I'm most definitely in a state of shock and it will take some time for me to get over this," Suchomel said on Oct. 2."I haven't been able to sleep and I still keep hearing the sound of loud pops in my head."
After she managed to flee from the scene of the shooting, Suchomel said she went back to the hotel where she was staying with friends, gathered her belongings and returned to her home as quickly as possible to see her husband, Mike, and her 3-year-old daughter, Scarlet.
