    Wow! Does not make sense in light of:
    Would like to see a formal will....
    How bad was the cancer?
    Did she own the gun?
    Suicide by shooting is rare for women, and rare too in head/face.
    Since he's married, going to police and not got going to her townhouse?
    Since bf said he hadn't seen her in days - that's perfect for checking phone, social media, and surveillance to disprove.
    Hope they get whomever did this. She is so beautiful, what a shame!

    Very interesting.

    First of all, the ME may regret his initial "rush to judgment" in ruling her death a suicide. Defense attorneys love to jump all over those "mistakes" at trial and this ME will be in for a lengthy cross-examination.

    Secondly, it appears obvious who the primary suspect should be. A married boyfriend whose wife claims he may have tried to kill her shortly before Sarah's death, with documents stating he stands to inherit Sarah's assets worth nearly a million dollars, and making claims Sarah was dying of cancer?? He appears to have wrapped this up perfectly for himself, or so he thinks. If this is a recent photo of Sarah, she looks perfectly healthy, and I am in agreement with the neighbor, that a person who is in the last stages of that illness would be barely functioning, let alone active and jogging. The so-called "suicide" appears staged, and am also curious if Sarah owned a gun.

    Most curious if any trace of cancer was present at her autopsy, and at what point in the initial investigation the married boyfriend gave this information to LE. Would also like to hear more from the wife as to this attempted poisoning.

    MOO

    Also, was Sarah right-handed or left-handed?

    Good point! It would seem, though, the staging was at least somewhat consistent with suicide which contributed to the initial ruling.

    The boyfriend tried to give his own wife a "poisoned milkshake " in May. I think he was testing how much drug to give someone in advance. In July the last time he visited his girlfriend the victim, he bought he toilet paper and a chocolate shake. People that knew Sarah said she was right handed, but she was shot in the left temple and the gun was in her left hand between her breast. LE took the milkshake container as evidence.

    When I first read the article, I mistook the chocolate shake container for the one he had given his wife. Now more questions arise, such as his contention he hadn't seen Sarah for several days, takes her a chocolate shake and toilet paper, and she had allegedly killed herself before he arrived and he discovered the body? Totally confused.

    Sarah and her husband had been separated, per FB chatter.

    If you watch the video, it says the last time the boyfriend "saw her" was when he took the TP and shake. The boyfriend then called LE a few days later saying he had not heard from her in days. I guess a welfare check was done and she was found dead. He told LE that she had been very weak/sick , ect but all the neighbors said she was up and active.

    I was looking at that. Nothing since 2013. Newer boyfriend may not even be a "friend" on there.

    Thanks OG :seeya:

    Article stated he said she suffered from cervical cancer. That should be pretty easy to tell if it's true.

    I would love to know if she's right or left handed.

    I wish I could find out more about the boyfriend. Very hinky

    Thanks - I have no speakers on the monitor at the moment. The print article was what confused me as I initially thought he hadn't seen her for a few days, then the milkshake container was found with her, so she either died immediately afterward or hadn't emptied the trash for days. Whatever, it appears he is the last known person to see her, and obviously the prime suspect, in my opinion. I trust the neighbors statements a lot more than him.

    MOO

    (I think that there are many cases out there that are ruled as suicides, when they actually are not. jmo)

    On the video the neighbor said he remembers her always holding the dog leash in her right hand when she walked her dog. He thought she was right handed. We need to hear what her family says. LE most likely already knows.

    Agree, some ruled suicides, others accidental (such as drownings) and later ruled homicide. Thankfully this one was reclassified before many years passed as is sometimes the case.

    That makes it even more suspicious. She's going to leave close to a million dollars to a married man she's been dating for 2 month???? Not buying it.

    Any local talk about who this guy is?
