    ETA: interesting...it mentions they found hair in his hand. I didn't watch the whole show...was this mentioned?


    Yes the did talk about it. Dna was done and it was his own hair. That is one of the things that changed the cause of death from suicide to homicide. Sounds like some sort of involuntary reaction by the body during a traumatic death. Not something that would happen with a suicide.

    There are a few things interesting in the sister's letter. An off duty police officer seems to have been the catalyst for Chris being kicked out of the bar. He wasn't questioned because they didn't want to upset his family. WTH?

    Someone mentioned a break-up with a girlfriend as maybe a cause for depression, but the show and the letter both state the girlfriend was with Chris in the bar. I have seen 2 different accounts of where his wallet and cell phone were - behind the bar and being held by the gf. Was the gf aware that he was thrown out and did she leave soon after?

    I don't know how much investigation was done at the bar, but it seems the tragedy may have been set in motion there.

    IMO, what happened at the bar is probably 95% important to understanding this crime.

    IIRC.....these were two different girlfriends. The one for which he had seen a counselor for a session or two was from a year or more earlier. The one in the bar was a new girlfriend. Someone please correct this if I have this confused with another case!!!

    Totally agree. I watched the Dateline and these were big questions that weren't answered. If he went to the bar with his girlfriend and another friend, why did they stay behind when he got kicked out? Why didn't he get his phone and wallet before leaving? Why didn't he have a coat in that weather?
