I shouldn't do these polls when I have a headache! I clicked on 'suicide' but I meant to vote 'murder'. :banghead:
Is there any way to fix this? She was DEFINITELY murdered.

definitely murdered IMO

I vote murdered too. I dont believe at all that it was a suicide.

I thought suicide until I listened to Dr Wecht on the radio show last night. Now I am undecided. I will wait to hear what more comes from the family's new investigation.

I voted strongly for murder!

However, I realize law enforcement has more information than what they have shared with the public, so I am open to the possibility of suicide. It's just that the information that they have given as to why they think it is suicide just doesn't convince me. AT ALL! Too many unanswered questions that just don't add up.

Of course I'm one of a handful of people that still think that Steve McNair (Titan's football player) was not killed by the girlfriend who then committed suicide. Another high profile case that I do not think was ever fully explained on how it was murder/suicide. It just didn't add up to me.

I'm just skeptical I guess, always thinking there is a more logical explanation.

I think she was murdered .

I voted murder because they too quickly closed the case. They didn't have time to do the proper forensics and consult the proper experts. They didn't include the family or others information. Something is fishy about that.

Murdered, it is hinky stinky to the heavens.

I think she was murdered. I think she was getting ready to shower, and she heard a noise or someone yelling up at her. She hops out of the balcony on her tip toes and the killer was saying something to her. She jumps in side, and by then the killer is in her room. He ties her up, ties the rope at the end of the bed, makes the noose and throws it out of the door and over the balcony. He makes her hold the items so her fingerprints are on them. (stages the entire scene while she is still alive.) Perhaps a retired dirty cop?

Maybe he had her write the message with one hand and that is why one hand was loose.

He takes her downstairs, she is struggling to get loose, this is why one hand in the back the rope was loose. I think she was pushed down a few times, prodded or whatever to cause the marks on her head and back. He pulls the table up to the noose, and puts her in it, pushes the table out of the way. Maybe he swung her, and she swung back and forth with her back hitting the cactus like plant.

Absolutely murdered... the message scrawled on the door is the last , among many, sticking point(s) with me. No woman leaves a cryptic message like that as her last known communication to her loved ones- NO WAY!

This death took some thought, preparation and, time. IMO if you are suicidal you would take an easy way out. The manner of execution and being naked seem to send a poignant message to someone.

I believe she was murdered....

09-20-2011, 07:33 PM
imo, murdered.

I think she committed suicide. I've only read about 75% of the available info so far though, so I could change my opinion if I find more info in the rest of what I read.

I believe she was murdered for a number of reasons - mostly based on how she was tied up.

I think LE did a great injustice by creating the video showing a woman tying her own hands with ROPE to show how Rebecca could have committed suicide.

However, she was tied with ELECTRICAL CORDS, not rope. Show me a video of how a woman can tie herself tightly with electrical cords instead of rope, and I might reconsider....
