Can anyone tell me what were the circumstances surrounding her presumed death? Thanks!

Next Kay fell in love with and tricked hairdresser Derek Thurston into marrying her. Derek was really in love with Jill Foster! But Derek took Kay up on her deal. If he lived with her for a year, she would set up a $100,000 trust for Jill’s son and set Derek up in his own salon. Then Derek’s ex-wife Suzanne Lynch arrived in town, bent on getting Derek back. She befriended Kay, and gave her candy laced with drugs, which drove Kay into a sanitarium. Kay’s roommate went berserk and set fire to the room. Kay escaped, but the roommate’s body was identified as Kay because she was wearing Kay’s ring. Derek found himself free of both wives, inheriting the Chancellor wealth and free to marry Jill. But Kay showed up at their wedding – very much alive! Kay reclaimed her fortune and Derek, and named him head of Chancellor Industries. They went on a cruise, had a fight, Kay jumped overboard, and was rescued by Felipe Ramirez who held her captive. They fell in love, and he let her loose to return to her world where she divorced Derek. November 30, 2009 at 9:47 pm #1982778 Anonymous 2899 Posts Thanks Smitty! I actually checked out that profile, but I guess I scanned through it too fast. Thanks! Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
