I hope I look this much like Jackie O if I off myself*

This is Evelyn McHale after her jump from the Empire State Building in May of 1947. 'The Most Beautiful Suicide' is what Life magazine titled this photo by Robert C. Wiles, a photographer that happened to be across the street when she landed with a crash on a UN limousine.

More information about Evelyn at Kottke.
