Did anyone else notice at the start how the paramedics noted something was blocking her airway? I kept thinking it would be raised again but it was never mentioned. They did however mention in the end the theory that she had face swelling possibly from an allergic reaction...which could indeed cause airway constriction.. when they said at the start the coroner had conducted 9,000 autopsies over a 30yr career i was like...thats a CRAZY number...! it is 300 a year! roughly 1 a day if not more allowing for holidays and weekends...!!

A guilty man walks free because a case was improperly conducted. Sometimes a criminal finds a way to get away with the crime. It happens. And I believe that's what happened here. There is enough circumstantial evidence to put this guy behind bars... but a forensic scientist with limited knowledge and skill ensured that he had a reason to get away with murder. Its a shame, but let that be a lesson to the justice better, because you will be helf accountable that means society and a dead woman never get justice.

Couldn’t remember if the emergency number was 111 or 000? I call BS on that claim. Any adult with a functioning brain knows the emergency number of their respective country.

I think he killed her, and I think it is glaringly obvious. A combination of good competent forensics, physical evidence, and circumstantial evidence would have convicted this guy. This guy who is adamant that "we are not the sum of .... the worst things we have done" or whatever the Hell he said. I am so sad that incompetence has destroyed this case and that a very likely guilty man has gotten the hero's treatment. miscarriage of justice. another miscarriage of justice is the 25 year sentence for first degree murder, and yet another is that such a sentence for such a crime is considered harsh and rare.

we reviewed our actions and found we did nothing wrong unless you look at the facts of the case

Did he fake her signature on the multiple health insurance papers or not?! He said that he wouldn't have claimed the payouts but that doesn't mean it's the truth.
