The Last Hours of Karen Car­pen­ter


Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Front Page -

Dr Richard Shep­herd in­ves­ti­gates the death of the singer and drum­mer Karen Car­pen­ter in Fe­bru­ary 1983, with her cause of death at the time de­ter­mined as heart fail­ure as a con­se­quence of anorexia ner­vosa. Armed with the post-mortem re­port, Dr Shep­herd goes back over the last few weeks of her life in an at­tempt to un­ravel what hap­pened, and un­cov­ers sto­ries of emet­ics, bu­limia, heart prob­lems, seda­tives, mas­sive weight loss, force-feed­ing and stays in hospi­tal. With con­tri­bu­tions by close friends, a psy­chol­o­gist and oth­ers who knew her.
