How Kimberly Goldman a suicidal woman intentionally sought to take her husband’s life after divorce court hearings before jumping to her death shortly after.
Kimberly Goldman a 60 year old Martinez, Concord woman has killed herself after having earlier in the day written that a pending divorce between her and her estranged husband was a ‘matter of life or death.’
The woman’s death came after Goldman intentionally ran over her ex husband, Dr Brian Halevie-Goldman and two others outside a courtroom before leaping to her death shortly after from the Benicia Bridge.
The woman’s suicide notes a report via ABC came after onlookers had tried to stop the woman who managed to drive away only to soon crash her car into a wall and jump 100 feet to her death.
The incident followed after the divorcing couple had moments earlier walked away from a scheduled petition hearing in which the wife had claimed having zero dollars to her name.
The hit and run and the wife’s suicide came days after Kimberly Goldman had served as her own attorney at the Peter Spineta Law Center where she’d filed court documents for divorce.
Foreboding were the woman’s claims telling she had suicidal thoughts while also revealing that she’d made two ‘serious attempts’ at taking her own life in the past, the most recent in 1996.

According to court documents cited by eastbaytimes, Goldman had recently changed her name to Kimberly Kincaid after having filed for divorce from her doctor husband on October 11. The couple had been married more than 27 years and have two adult children.
Court documents describe the divorcing wife having made suicidal threats earlier this year after some laptops were stolen from her estranged husband’s car.
Court documents revealed the wife blamed her ex-husband for the theft, along with having told her estranged husband that she was ‘suicidal, beginning when he had the laptops stolen. She shared with him that she had a plan and serious intention to harm herself.’
Halevie-Goldman, in court documents, described his estranged wife as ‘abusive’ along with claims that she ‘constantly berates me and threatens suicide whenever she wants to ‘make a point.’’
The Nov. 7 hearing, the day in which the wife attempted to run over her husband according to Kimberly Goldman, was ‘an emergency.’
‘At the risk of being dramatic, it is a matter of life and death,‘ she wrote. ‘Petitioner (Goldman) has $0 left to her name.’

Kimberly Goldman reportedly ran over all three victims just minutes after the hearing was postponed. They went by ambulance to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek with moderate injuries and were expected to survive, Martinez police Detective Miles Williamson said Tuesday.
One of the three victims in the crash was hit more than once. That victim was a woman walking with Halevie-Goldman and another man.
Halevie-Goldman wrote in court documents that his estranged wife was ‘very jealous and suspicious of any involvement she perceived between myself and any female I encountered, no matter how benign and non-threatening the female may have been.”
Williamson said that the woman was not involved romantically with Goldman’s estranged husband.
Reiterated Williamson: ‘This was not a lover’s quarrel,’
‘The female was with the attorney of the gentleman and not tied to (Halevie-Goldman).’
Halevie-Goldman was the former medical director of the clinic at the center of the BALCO drug scandal. In 2006, he was accused of helping gold medalist sprinter Kelli White obtain illegal performance enhancing drugs.
White’s two gold medals were later revoked. Halevie-Goldman had his medical license suspended for 90 days, records show.
According to Williamson, Kimberly Goldman did not leave a note behind, and police still investigating her motive.
