Diane Schuler called her brother becuase her husband was out of reach on his cell phone on a fishing trip that is what I read in the paper. They were to meet back at the house on Long Island in time for dinner.

This says you only get a $10000 exemption in NY.
Hubby needs to get in the White Bronco and drive erratically down to Miami and buy a McMansion, where he can join OJ in being able to claim unlimited homestead exemption.

I also found it odd that Diane Schuler's husband made it home before she did when he was on a fishing trip. But then I took into account the accident and investigating it probably took hours to do. But didn't he have to go on that parkway to go home? Even if he was traveling on the other side of the highway wouldn't he have been in a traffic jam or something? I also found it odd that Diane's brother called the police to report his sister was not feeling well and I thought he was very vage in his response on what his sister said I still find the whole terrible tragedy and the phone calls made and the cell phone being left very odd. But know her brother will have law suits against him becasue the van was registered to him so he not only lost his 3 daughters but will have many lawsuits against him

Thats what it sounds like I just can't belive that her husband would willingly let her drive home with herself and 5 children in the van if he knew she was drunk and stoned. If you drink vodka you can easily put it in your water bottle and let everyone think you are drinking water. When did she start drinking as soon as she woke up?

That is what I was asking also. Why is this tragedy turning into a race issue? I would of felt the same way about this tragedy and thought there had to be a under lying medical condition. Mothers black and white are suppose to protect there children and keep them from arms way not harm them. I would never of thought a mom black or white would drive stoned and drunk with 5 children in the car. THis has nothing to do with race.

Any one who knows that children are getting into a car to take a long ride with a driver that is drunk or high or both, is a criminal in my opinion.
Just as guilty as the driver. Who would allow such a thing. Those children were not solely in the care of that drunk crazy woman but of all who were there with them who might have possibly allowed this woman to drive knowing she had drunk or did drugs or both.

I was beginning to think it was suicide. I would never of thought that a Mother and Aunt would drive 5 children home from anywhere in the condition that she was in. I think people just did not think she could of been drunk at this time of day and becasue she was driving 5 children with her and when a tragedy such as this happens I beleive that people need to find a answer such as a mysterious medical condition totry and understand how a terrible tragedy like this could happen.

No, he took another way home as his car had commercial plates and couldnt travel on the pky (article in today's NY Post)

<< The Schulers separately left the campgrounds at about 9:30 a.m. on July 26. Daniel was driving with the family dog in his Dodge pickup, while Diane was taking the children in her Ford Windstar minivan.
Daniel could not follow Diane onto any parkway because his truck has commercial plates.
"She was fine. She was the same old Diane she was every weekend," said Scott. "The last words I said were, 'Have a safe trip home.' " >>

It totally sounds like a suicide mission. It is so inconceivable to me that she would chug vodka, smoke pot while driving 3 hours to go home. It's not like she was on her way home from the bar (which would explain being drunk). There is just no way... I refuse to believe that a mother driving a van full of kids would do that. There's a lot missing from this story.

Agreed, there are alot of things that the public is not being told. Heck, I wouldent be suprised if the State Police investigators working the case were just as shocked as we were when they got the tox report back.

For example, did her family know she was a pothead and a alcoholic? I can see the suicide theory but why bring the kids along as well? Why do it in such a public fashion killing your daughter, 3 nieces, 3 innocent people and severely injuring your son - would you just rather shoot/slash/hang yourself?
