Olsson's experience found that faked suicide notes reflected society's preconceptions about suicide victims being weak and unable to face their difficulties.
Those who forge such notes frequently use words such as 'crazy', 'cowardly' and 'selfish', but these are rarely found in the genuine items.
According to this reasoning, Sandra Weddell might well have killed herself, since her apparent suicide note made no reference to insanity or weakness.

Officials said they were evaluating an antigovernment manifesto posted on the Internet earlier Thursday, signed "Joe Stack," which suggested he planned the crash. "Violence not only is the answer, it is the only answer," the author wrote toward the end of a tirade against the IRS posted at 9:12 a.m. on a Web site registered to Mr. Stack. He described himself as a contract software engineer.
By late Thursday night, emergency crews had found two bodies in the wreckage, the Associated Press reported. Authorities said earlier that the pilot who crashed into the building was presumed dead and that one worker in the building was missing. Thirteen people were injured, including two who remained hospitalized for critical injuries. More than 100 IRS employees work at the building.

When the police responded to his house fire his wife new he was having mental difficulties
and sent the police looking for him. She was probably aware of his internet postings but did
not know what he was planning to do. He has owned the plane for many years and has had
a pilots license for around 25 years. His identification was tentative until they actual found his
body in the wreckage and were able to do a proper ID. I believe Joe had a psychological
breakdown due to the stress from his financial and IRS problems. He was not broke, he bought
a $230k home within the past 2 or 3 years and has had to use his retirement money to live on
while he wasn't making any money due to the economy. He was probably afraid that the IRS
would take his home and the remainder of his savings away (that might explain burning down his house).
