The parents of Ellen Greenberg, a beloved Pennsylvania schoolteacher found stabbed 20 times more than a decade ago, say they will not stop until authorities move beyond the suicide ruling. "We’re not gonna let this go," her father said.
The case of a beloved Pennsylvania
schoolteacher found dead with 20 stab wounds is being reopened more than a decade after it was initially ruled a suicide.
The family of Ellen Greenberg emphatically denied there being any chance that she could have killed herself. The 27-year-old educator was about to be married when her fiancé told police he came home from the gym to find her lying in their Philadelphia apartment on Jan. 26, 2011
Her fiancé, Sam Goldberg, told the 911 operator he thought she may have slipped and hit her head, and audio recording of the call captured the moment he discovered she had been stabbed.
“Her shirt won't come off, it's a zipper. Oh, my God, she stabbed herself,” he said.
Greenburg was stabbed 20 times, 10 in the back of her neck, once in the scalp, eight times in the chest and in the abdomen.
Her death was at first ruled a homicide
but was later changed to suicide. Her parents have spent the last 11 years fighting that ruling.
