Here's the tremendously depressing update on the two people who jumped in front of a Long Island Rail Road train in Queens on Monday:  According to the Post, they were young lovers being pressured to end their relationship. Davon Smallwood, 25, and Ariana O’Neal, 21, had a two-year-old daughter together, but O'Neal's mother forbid Smallwood from visiting their home because he was in trouble with the law. The pair were arrested recently for allegedly stealing jewelry from a store in Jamaica, Queens. Police sources say they found a multipage suicide note on the platform that said they were "two great people" headed to "paradise" and "everything will be good."
