New Jersey police have ruled the death of a 19 year old Trinidadian-American as suicide. An autopsy report suggests that Lily Seegobin (seen here feeding her baby sister) died almost instantly when her 2004 Honda CR-V was struck by a New Jersey Transit train in Spring Lake last Saturday. Witnesses said Seegobin drove around security gates to get on the track. The young woman lived in New Jersey since 1999. She graduated from Point Pleasant High School last year, and was attending Rutgers University Business School. She had been a cheerleader and softball player. She was in the Yearbook Club, and was involved with Future Business Leaders of America. Her family said Seegobin had boyfriend troubles, family arguments, and difficulty settling in at Rutgers. Relatives told the Star Ledger she fired off a suicide text before driving across the train tracks. It read:"Tell everyone I love them very much," she wrote. "Tell everyone I'm sorry. I'm just at a point of no return."
