The tragic story of a deadly Christmas Day fire in Connecticut took another sad turn after it was reported that the woman who survived attempted to kill herself. CBS 2 in New York and the New York Daily News report that Madonna Badger was hospitalized last week after a failed suicide attempt, but has been released and is "in a safe place." Badger's three young daughters and both her parents died after her home in Stamford, Connecticut, burned down in the early morning hours on December 25. CBS also reported yesterday that all the smoke detectors and fire extinguishers had been removed from the home and stored in the garage so that the house could be painted. Badger's boyfriend, Michael Borcina, was the only other survivor of the fire and was also the contractor overseeing the renovations being done on the home.
