Interesting

Thank you for highlighting this case and the apparent injustice in the coroner’s verdict. Sad to see that the police in the more recent Baillee Schneider’s case also didn’t check phones but perhaps there was a reason for that.

Red

Having been under the influence, I’m hearing too many red flags about this boyfriend, I’m hearing control and manipulation and also a privileged family with too much to lose. I suspect that the judges had more heft than the retired detective and psychiatrist. Can police please consider homicide first and suicide later; hopefully other families will be spared lost evidence and poor verdicts. My heart goes out to Phoebes family.

Compelling and troubling

A salient reminder that where matters involving people with power, wealth and influence are concerned, things are often not what they seem. Perhaps the investigating police and court system were too dazzled by legal pedigrees? Cases such as these when more thoroughly investigated and the evidence more critically evaluated result in too many errors and questions which do much to undermine trust in our legal system. Thank you for again highlighting this fact.
