Magnolia Truffle Cuppie Falls to its Death off Metro North Train Seat

Somewhere along the Hudson River, N.Y. -- A Magnolia Truffle Cupcake was killed Tuesday night after falling off a seat of a 7:57 p.m. northbound Metro North train, headed to Croton Harmon, NY from Grand Central Station in New York City. Authorities are still unable to determine if the death was accidental, homicidal, or suicidal.

The cuppie was last seen with new acquaintance Rebecca Lynn Goldberg of Tarrytown, NY who was headed home at the time of the incident.

"We met up around 7:54. I needed to catch the 7:57 and I still had to get all the way across the station to Track 36. I had just a minute to select the truffle, a departure from my usual chocolate icing/vanilla cake choice, pay and run to the track," Goldberg said.

Witnesses say they in fact had never seen Goldberg hanging out with the Truffle Cuppie prior to Tuesday evening and that the two seemed to be enjoying each other's company.

"I didn't see it coming," Goldberg said. "I was so thankful to have gotten that far without spilling or messing up my sweater. We even took a photo together to show our newly found happiness."

"Then all of a sudden, splat. I think maybe it was suicide."

Authorities say they are still considering Goldberg a "person of interest" but aren't holding her under any formal charges. Yet.

When asked by reporters if the cuppie had fallen or if she'd pushed it off the seat, she responded calmly and simply with "Yea, I ate it. I liked it too. But I didn't push her. I didn't want to lose a single drop."

If you or anyone you know has any information that can help in this investigation, please leave it here.
