Man, must have been some bird.
Alex Jordan (born Karen Elizabeth Mereness on September 20, 1963; died July 2, 1995) was a porn film actress. She won the 1993 AVN Awards for "Best New Starlet".
Jordan entered the adult business in 1992, answering an ad for a nude model. She was one of the first female pioneers of the gonzo porn sub-genre, which involved her making videos with non-professional amateur actors. She was fairly well received by porn fans, but never as a lead actress. Her most notable performances usually involved lesbian scenes.
A few months before Alex Jordan (Karen Elizabeth Hughes) hung herself, Cinema Blue headlined an interview with her "Alex Jordan's... f---ing her brains out on screen and loving every minute of it!"
Alex appeared one of the better adjusted female performers - at least while she was on anti-depressants which she quit several months prior to her suicide. Many, if not most female performers, especially when compared to the men, complain constantly about the biz.
Bill Margold discovered and named Alex Jordan and she was the first and only one of his "kids" to commit suicide.
Alex described herself as a true romantic. "While I'm into kinky sex, I like it to be done in romantic surroundings. I may give my husband an underwater blow job, but it'll be done in our own pretty pink bathroom with two glasses of champagne resting on the tub."
Alex married Justin Case on video in Las Vegas. Justin also does porn. On their wedding, both of them performed "like gangbusters.
"It's one thing to share your wedding night with your husband. But it's a total turn-on knowing that every nasty thing we did was being captured on videotape.
"My folks knew that someone was taping our wedding and they asked us for a copy. Naturally they didn't know that the last bit on the tape features Justin and I f---ing our brains out. We had to get a specially edited version made up for them - with the tail end, so to speak, edited out!
Karen aged quickly in the fast lane of porn. In June 1995, she became lonely when her husband went to Colorado to try to set up a ski shop so they could leave porn. She'd suffered from depression all her life, and now she'd gone months without medication.
Jordan's best friend was her parrot, and when it died, she went crazy. Speaking on the telephone to her husband, she accused him of not caring about her. His crime? Lack of sensitivity to her feelings about her bird's death. She wrote a note describing her depression over the loss of her bird, and on the 27th of June, Alex hung herself in her closet.
On July 2nd, Alex's friend Summer Knight, a fellow porn performer, made a call to the police saying that Alex was missing. They broke into Alex's Marina Del Rey apartment. The first person to open Jordan's closet was Summer, who smelled something funny. She saw her friend's decomposing body hanging there.
"The decedent was fully clothed," said the coroner's report, "cold to the touch and in early maroon and green mottled decomposition. She was fully suspended by a rope ligature about her neck which was tied neatly about a clothing hanger bar."
Police found a variety of drugs in Alex's apartment and a suicide note that said Alex was distraught over the death of her bird and that she wanted the world to know that she was leaving everything to her husband.

Man, must have been some bird.
Was she born 63 or 67?
There are 2 different years in this article.
Suicide over a bird doesn't sound "well adjusted."
I wonder if the AVN awards are more fun to watch than the Oscars!
"And now the nominees for Best performance as the Pizza Delivery Guy are..."
This is what she looked like:

Can you imagine the phrases that parrot could repeat?
"If you're gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty."
anyone think that the bird was a..........(wait for it........wait for it...) Cock or cockatu?

Man thats sad! Any pics??? You know my sick ass wants to see some pics !! Poor girl though ! That reminds me Savannha a little bit...Savannha always made me sad because the one pic Scott has of her drying off her dog she looks like a little girl..you just wanna hug her and say its gonns be oaky..speaking of her that another death scene pic I would like to see.....
Wow I have heard about people being in attached to their pet's, but that is taking things to the extreme surely.
I wonder why she went off her pills? Probably not the best move she could have made.
Glad I'm not the only one that likes to look at death scenes!!
Eh, you've seen one decomp, you've seen 'em all...
Hanging decomps are a little better because they are not all mushed into the bed or the couch and the floor is not slippery with goo usually. The tounge protruding in some decomps always bothers me. It protrudes in most hangings as well.
I digress though. I remember this story. Sad that the bird meant so much to her. I had a pet parrot that died and I miss him but not enough to hang myself.
Any pictures of the parrot?
Any day above ground is a good day.
lol,im speechless,a parot......WOW
And the best actress who looks like she enjoys getting gunk on her face the award goes to...

Man, that is a sad story.
That is a very sad story-
Poor Summer-you imagine being hit in the face with that smell. Then opening the closet and seeing your friend in that state?
So where is the parrot buried? Tombstone photo?
I am a sick puppy....woof woof!!!

Well I mean it's not the most serious suicide story... sad as it all is in the end, it does has some elements of comedy mixed in with the tragedy.
yeah that was funny... and so wrong, shame on the person who posted it.
Do not make a monty python joke, do not make a monty python joke...
this is a dead parrot!!! I did for you..I thought the same thing!!!hahahahahaha!!!! Your hot btw halogirl5!!
Mental illness can be devastating. You dont wanna see me off my meds. I feel bad for her friend that found her!
Kinda OT, but I started wondering about people who commit suicide by hanging - how good are they at knot tying? I just went to a website that shows a whole bunch of different "hangman's knots", such as the simple noose, the strangle snare, the gallows knot, etc. Now, I believe I'm a pretty smart person, but the knots look really complicated, and I'd probably get so frustrated trying to tie the damn thing, I'd have to find another way to off myself!
OT but isn't it a little 'odd' to find an old VHS of a deceased porn star that you have whacked off to? I mean they seem to come in spades, so why watch porn when you will just feel bad when someone kills themself or dies?
"End? No, the journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass, and then you see it. White shores, and beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise".
People hang themselves; pictures are hung.
'He was found hanging from the rafters in their attic.'
'The prisoners will hang at dawn.'
Men are hung only if they have good genes.
