Regarding the woman who set herself on fire yesterday at the Mall of the Americas, this isn't exactly surprising:
The woman's husband said she had been to Jackson Memorial Hospital three times recently for psychiatric help and has a history of mental problems, according to Miami Herald news partner WFOR-CBS 4.
Her daughter worked at the boutique where she set herself on fire. She left two dozen roses on the counter before torching herself. She also has 4-year-old daughter.
