Regrettably, Craig Turner died in 2018, the reason is not disclosed yet. As his death seems to be a suicide attempt. Craig worked in real estate in California and he get a new job at that time. A new partner he find also, but I really don’t know how it happened. 

“I still don’t know what took him to the edge, because at that stage he had said to me that he had never met a woman that he felt that way about,” she said. “He was bringing her to meet me [for] his birthday in August. He had decorated his apartment, which I bought him years ago. He had gotten a new job with a prominent real estate company in California, [which] he was very happy with.”

Tina continued: “I have no idea what pulled him down, except something that followed him with loneliness. I think it was something about being alone. But when I think that, why didn’t he call the new girlfriend that gave him the lift?”

Tina said, to Craig “He was an introverted person, he was very shy, so I didn’t know either, except now when I listen back to our last conversations, I notice a change. The last few times we talked, the conversations were different, and I didn’t know that until after the suicide.”

“I think Craig was lonely, that’s what I think really got him more than anything else,” she said. “I have pictures all around of him smiling, and I think I’m sensing that he’s in a good place. I really do.”

At the time of Craig’s death, he was 59 and her mother said that she also replace her son’s kidney and he is better than her. “I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life. I’m happier than I ever thought that life would become for me,” said Turner.

According to his mother, he always tensed because of Tina and Ike’s relationship. Actually, Ike abused Tina, and from his childhood, it affected him a lot. She said that she “was a very emotional kid.” “He’d always look down in sadness,” “One day when Ike was fighting me, Craig knocked on the door and said, ‘Mother, are you all right?’ I thought, ‘Oh, please, don’t beat me at home.’ I didn’t want my children to hear.”
