Chicago police say they are sorry they destroyed the final messages Nicole Porter wrote to her parents before committing suicide. Police sent the parents copies of two notes Porter wrote to them but kept the originals as part of their investigation. They promised to give the notes to the parents after the investigation was over but destroyed them instead. "It was the last 'I love you' she ever said to us. It's the last physical thing she ever left for us," said her mother.
