Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Russell Armstrong was found dead, hanging in a closet in a bedroom at his best friend’s house last month. The L.A. County Coroner pieced together the circumstances surrounding the death and the facts of his impending divorce, his financial woes, his worries that Taylor Armstrong was about to reveal sensational sexual details about him as well as his physical abuse of her, in a new book, as well as the fact that he apparently stopped taking his antidepressant medication shortly before his death. Taking all this into consideration, the coroner ruled that Russell Armstrong’s death was a suicide.
That is not good enough for Russell Armstrong’s family. Oh no, they allege that the reality TV star was murdered by a person or persons unknown, and they have reportedly sought out a private investigator to take up the case.
The ruling of the L.A. County Coroner that Russell Armstrong’s death was a suicide by hanging, seems plausible enough, given the circumstances. But his family are not happy with that.
His family allege that Russell’s money problems caused him to get involved “with the wrong people.” Perhaps he even screwed someone over in a desperate attempt to get himself the money he needed to pay off his debts and impending lawsuits, so that the person or persons retaliated by killing him. That’s what the family think.
Russell Armstrong’s family is apparently in the process of hiring a private investigator to take up the case. Do you buy the suicide verdict or is murder more likely for you too as a cause of Russell Armstrong’s death?
