A coroner is not going to be able to tell if a person who died from being run over was on accident or on purpose. I agree that this story does have a stink to it.

From the local newspaper:


Northampton County Coroner Zach Lysek previously said the crash was being investigated as a suspicious death, but there is nothing that leads him to believe there was any type of domestic issue involved in the incident.

The incident was investigated by the Palmer Township Police Department and Northampton County Coronerís Office, and the case is closed, police Detective Jim Alercia said.

Backup cameras are great...pretty much standard now and will be 100% standard within
a couple of years. Have it on my 2018 Honda CRV...soon, I predict, there will be multiple
cameras and sensors all around every vehicle.

But I can't be the only one here who immediately thought that this guy offed his wife on purpose. If she is an average-sized adult he should have looked to see where she was before he hit the gas, and if he couldn't see her he should have stuck his head out the window and looked for her. I'm sure the investigation is ongoing and more will come out. But from where I stand now...
I didn't.

Even if cars have the back up cameras, you can't always rely on them. I always look over my shoulders no matter what.

I have a hard time imagining that he realized she fell behind the the car and thought, "Here's my chance to kill her without being charged with murder." It seems quite far-fetched to me that he'd been waiting for some "perfect opportunity" to kill her "accidentally."

Not to be argumentative, but no one saw her fall. At least not that I've read.

Right.

He could easily have just backed up when she was walking behind the car to go around it. On purpose.

How likely is it that she would fall DIRECTLY behind the car.

How likely is it that you have just had a passenger get out, you saw them walk behind the car to go around it, and you then backed up BEFORE you saw them come around the side?

Cmon now.

Why did she get out of the car if he was leaving?
Why did she walk away from the car towards the street?
Why did she walk back towards the car?
The only scenario that makes any sense is the went someplace together, he had another errand to run and she didn't want to go, he dropped her off in the driveway and left again, not noticing that she had fallen behind the vehicle. If that's the case, why did she walk behind the vehicle towards the street - did she get the mail maybe? If that's the case why the hell wasn't he aware of her doing that?
I don't get it.
Saw this afer I posted.

Stated it way better than I did
