"I cared too much." (via Detroit Free Press)

Roy Tomlinson, 62, was driving his girlfriend, 31, to Michigan after she was released from an Arizona recovery center, when she died along the way. 

According to the Free Press, Tomlinson's girlfriend had fallen asleep and he discovered she had died somewhere in either Texas or Oklahoma. You'd think you'd remember what state you were in when you figured out your girlfriend was dead, but apparently Tomlinson was in a state of denial. "I cared too much," he said. 

Their relationship sprouted from Tomlinson's efforts to help her. When they met a year ago, the girlfriend had been homeless and had been in and out of recovery.
