Despite the coroner’s findings, it looks like Russell Armstrong’s family isn’t satisfied with believing there was no foul play involved in his suicide. Read on for details of the murder claims…
It’s been just over three weeks since Russell Armstrong was found dead on August 15. Despite is death being ruled a suicide, new reports are claiming his family believes there was a murder plot.
Russell Armstrong’s mother, John Ann Hotchkiss, told Us Weekly, “We want a murder investigation. She added, “We will do whatever is necessary to proceed.”
Hotchkiss admitted her son was ”feeling a little overwhelmed because of finances” but doesn’t believe he was suicidal.
“Russell was personable and warm and had a giving heart more than anyone I have ever known,” she said. “He cared about people, and loved his children almost to a fault. Knowing him as a person and how he valued life, I don’t think he would do this,” Hotchkiss added.
“The general consensus of everyone we know who loved and knew Russell,” she went on to say, was that “he was murdered and there was a set up.”
Does Russell Armstrong’s mother blame the network for what happened to her son?
John Ann Hotchkiss said, “No one is accusing Bravo. We think someone conspired to have him murdered and it is open as to who did it.”
That’s a huge claim to make and while we have no idea as to who would do something like this, being we only know what we see, it’s certainly an interesting theory.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Taylor Armstrong, wasn’t part of the special Bravo aired with the other housewives on Monday, but many of them believed she wasn’t aware of how serious Russell’s money issues were.
What do you think — was there a set up?
