I was thinking, what if West got mad at her, beat her up some, and then locked her in the garage. Then she, drunk, cold and upset, got in her car and turned it one where she then passed away. Just a thought I had and wanted to share. Love the show!

Thelma todd is an ancestor of mine, I can’t remember exactly but I think she may have been my great great aunt or something like that on my mums side, and my great aunt is acc named Thelma after her. I feel glad to have a relation to her, but knowing she died this way is horrible :(

Shouldn’t there be fingerprints on the car door / handle / garage door, maybe hers if it was suicide or a suspect if it was murder? I’m sure it was murder, nobody would dare break two ribs and a nose of their own😳

Thelma Todd, a woman who stuck to her personal morals, knew that beauty isn't just about physical looks, AND liked her whiskey. What a badass lady. I may pour out some Jameson in her honor tonight. Whatever happened to her and wherever her spirit is now, I hope she's at peace. Cheers, Thelma, and blessed be. )O(

My theory is that it was the mob, or the person sending threatening letters. They ambushed her, knocked her unconscious, put her in the car and turned the engine on for a silent and almost unsolvable death. Makes the most sense.

Wait, why was the chauffeur not a suspect? An hour and a half is a huge window of time unaccounted for. Maybe he tried to take advantage of her drunkenness and she resisted.

The thing is, the mob thing sounds the most probable one but then at the same time it seems kind of... shady? I mean if what the mob was really after was money why kill her? Threatening her would've worked way better. Additionally, isn't the point of mob killings over money like that to set an example so others would be willing to pay up without much resistance with the mob using the threat of 'You don't want to end up like Todd'. Or something like that? So then why would they go through so much trouble to make it look like a suicide. I feel like if this was a mob killing they would've made it an obvious greusome murder in order to shock and set an example.

TRIGGERING: Is it possible that since she was a beautiful young actress who was somewhat incapable of defending herself, because of her size, she could have been raped and beaten (broken ribs) and she felt so ashamed and alone that she went and did the unthinkable. It would explain why she was quieter than usual in the car ride home.

Why was this never addressed - carbon monoxide poisoning can cause seizures which is not uncommon to break your ribs from the convulsions. She could have easily broken her nose and ribs from carbon monoxide poisoning. I'll take it from here bois ... mystery solved.
