The father of Russell Armstrong believes a murder has occurred, and he is fighting to prove it. TMZ reports on Saturday that he thinks his son was deliberately killed and wants access to his autopsy information. The father claims Taylor Armstrong is not helping him discover the truth.
Russell committed suicide by hanging himself, and Taylor has accepted the police report about his death. In 2011, Russell was under a great amount of stress, but his relationship with the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star was also blamed for his decision to take his life. The couple was in the middle of a divorce and Taylor had accused him of abuse.
Russell’s father thinks clues about his death will be available in the autopsy report, so he can prove that it was murder. He wants the coroner’s office and Taylor to help him get this information. However, the autopsy results were made public after Russell’s death and did not indicate foul play. Nevertheless, this has not stopped his family from pursuing the murder possibility.
Reports from the coroner in 2011 revealed that Russell was not drunk or taking drugs at the time of his suicide. In addition, there was no sign of any illness or chronic health problem. Furthermore, witnesses who found his body mentioned that he was still hanging at the time with no indication of a break-in or struggle.
Taylor has not officially responded to the latest accusations from Russell’s father. She has been spending time in the mountains with John Bluher and posting updates about his cooking. Although she has not mentioned Russell recently, she retweeted suicide prevention information several weeks ago. The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star has also avoided talking about her former father-in-law. She has tried to focus on her new marriage, family and career.
