Carol Gotbaum – Wikipedia

Here’s the update on the police report I promised, along with some new photos released by the Gotbaum family. They show Noah and Carol Gotbaum with their kids: Ella, 8; Nathaniel, reort and Tobias, 3. Certainly they had a beautiful family. I read through the entire police report on Carol Gotbaum’s arrest and death last night.

As I mentioned in last night’s postI found it interesting that Gotbaum’s husband Noah called police with the information his wife was suicidal right around the time she was arrested.

Seems he ggotbaum been talking to his wife via cell phone, so he knew her state of mind. He informed the cops a family friend was headed gotbau, the airport and could take custody of her.

And he continued to call back to alert the cops that they were dealing with a seriously disturbed woman. This apparently continued even after his wife had been pronounced dead.

Carol Gotbaum

At that point, the cops had yet to notify him Carol Gotbaum was gone. The phone transcripts do not indicate that this info. Weirdly, the transcripts do indicate the communications person ordering Chinese food between calls from Noah Gotbaum. This is after Carol’s death, it seems, and this communications dillweed is focused on his friggin’ springrolls.


There’s some interesting stuff in the report about the way her body was found. The first page of the report states that Carol Gotbaum “was pronounced dead at hours by Capt. Ohmart, after CPR failed. One of the arresting officers, Officer Andrew Woyna, describes discovering Gotbaum’s slumped-over body:. Her head was on the bench and he thought that she might have gotbakm asleep, not an uncommon reaction after being arrested and allowed to calm down. He said that goybaum face was resting on her hands and he first thought she had taken a nap.

However, she would not respond when he called out to votbaum. He then entered the holding cell and saw the handcuffs against her neck. Officer Terri Klepper, the woman who searched Gotbaum and removed her jewelry as Gotbaum was struggling all the way, noted “that the woman smelled strongly of intoxicating beverage on her breath.

She said that the floor would repkrt slick for someone who was wearing that kind of sock. Officer Woyna went to check on her and found her down on the floor with the handcuffs under her chin as she sat on the floor with her head on the bench.

Klepper’s comments make you wonder if the slickness of the floor and the fact she was in her socks may have contributed to what happened. When Gotbau, was arrested, she was not wearing any shoes.

The report details how when county pathologist Dr. Ann Bucholtz inspected the holding cell, she sat where Gotbaum had been sitting and mimicked her moves, trying to figure out how Gotbaum succeeded in strangling herself. Bucholtz commented that she rpeort approximately the same size and build as the victim.


Several witnesses said they thought Gotbaum was drunk, crazy or on drugs, though it looks like Klepper is the only one who noted the smell of alcohol, unless I missed something in my review. The airline gate agent, a Ms. Grenier, stated that Gotbaum was carrying some food.

Rachel Gotbaum writes at The Hechinger Report

Grenier thought Gotbaum “must’ve been at the Roadhouse 66 bar, based on the package. Reporh several points, Gotbaum referred to herself as a “pathetic depressed mother” and a “depressed, pathetic housewife.

To what degree the cops were responsible or not for Gotbaum’s end, the courts will decide. That her end was a sad and tawdry one is self-evident.
