    TN - Lauren Agee, 21, Smithville, 26 July 2015

    This is frustrating. Please take a look.

    The DeKalb county sheriff's department determined after interviewing the four friends and visiting the scene that it was an accident. The medical examiner ruled it as a probable accidental drowning.

    But there were problems, and Officer Chris Yarchuck was one of them. He was the first officer on the scene, and he never for one second believed it was an accident

    “There is no way that was an accident, I will go to the grave believing that girl was killed her body was moved and they are hiding the truth,” Yarchuck said.

    But any LEO knows evidence is what is needed. What are they hoping get out of the four friends? What leverage do they have in civil court? A lower standard of evidence, I guess?

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    From Dec 2 article:
    "The Dekalb County Sheriff’s Office lead the investigation and concluded that Agee’s death was an accident, something which the affidavit disputes, citing there wasn’t water found in Agee’s lungs,...."
    http://fox17.com/news/local/wrongful...of-lauren-agee

    Private investigator's affidavit touched on several subjects other than no water (not say drowning was CoD), but FWIW ---
    No water in lungs does not conclusively rule out drowning as CoD, i.e. 'dry lungs' can be found in person who drowned, at least per below.
    "Dry drowning occurs when a person's lungs become unable to extract oxygen from the air, due primarily to: [laundry list] ....The person may effectively drown without any sort of liquid. In cases of dry drowning in which the victim was immersed, very little fluid is aspirated into the lungs. The laryngospasm reflex essentially causes asphyxiation and neurogenic pulmonary edema[1] (œdema).Dry drowning can occur clinically[clarification needed], or due to illness or accident..."

    This is a travesty of justice. Wonder which of these 4 has friends in high places?

    I just finished watching the episodes on Crime Watch Daily. I don't see why some think she was murdered. By being rammed by a canoe? (The V mark on her chest.) From what I watched, it seems she just tumbled off the cliff. She was drunk and was high altitude camping. I don't see why her mother thinks she was murdered. What am I missing?

    I think it's more that the other 3 refuse to answer questions and plead the 5th. Also the current wouldn't have allowed the body to be found where it was, it would have floated towards the marina, not all the way around the land mass to the other side. It was also a new boyfriend for her at that time. I can see why she is suspicious with the head wounds and lack of information from the only witnesses.
