Magen Fieramusca has been charged not with Heidi’s death but with corpse tampering and kidnapping. Police found Heidi’s body in the trunk of a car on her Houston, Texas, property last week.
A Georgia man who went to a strip club to celebrate his release that day from prison was convicted of killing a childhood friend who went along, prosecutors said Tuesday.
The death of a friend is a loss that most people face at some point in their lives—often many times. But it is a grief that may not be taken seriously by employers, doctors, or others. The so-called hierarchy of grief, a scale used to determine who is considered a more legitimate mourner than others, puts family members at the top. For this reason, the death of a close friend can feel shunted to the periphery and has been described as a disenfranchised grief.
