Good morning one and all. If you remember from any of my other blogs since March 29th when my dear brother-in-law Bobby passed away we suspected he was murdered by the woman he had met 36 days prior to his death. Especially since he died 2 days after signing everything he had over to her (retirement, $400,000, 10 acres of land, $200,000 dollar house, and anything else that is on the property). I am happy to say the will hearing that was supposed to have been held July 10, was postponed until Sept 3 pending criminal investigation. I would hope the two letters from my daughter and myself written not even a week before the hearing swayed the judge to post pone until the toxicology report came back,
The report is back in. It was not what we expected but there are so many unanswered questions yet. It seems the only thing they could find in my btr-in-law's system was Ambien. Ambien is a sleep med and only prescribed by a doctor. It can be fatal. But they are saying there was not enough in his system to be fatal, but Ambien can also be absorbed quickly. So....unanswered questions are:
1.) If Bobby was not on any medication at all, where did he get it?
2.) Who was the medication really prescribed to (was it Carol?)
3.) Carol told me that she gave Bobby's medication bottles to either the funeral home or the detective (she said she can't remember which and did not have a list of his meds) along with the pharmacist information where he got his meds.
4.) April (his RN nurse who was at the scene) was informed by the Chief of Police for Bear Creek, AL and the private investigator there were no meds in the house upon their arrival on the scene.
5.) The first doctor's apt that Bobby was to have scheduled since he got to Alabama almost 2 years ago was scheduled until April 5th. he passed on Mar 29.
Bobby and Connie Cole
As you can see we have questions; still. My heart says she murdered him and masked it somehow. I just can't accept the fact that he died from a heart attack; especially since we found out he died around noon and she didn't report his being unresponsive until 7:00 pm that night but yet she said she woke up up around 5pm to go to the store. And the initial coroner's report stated he did not die of natural causes.
Sorry guys to bring this all down on ya. You've been through this journey with me. I want justice for Bobby. He was a dear man who didn't deserve to die at the hands of someone he only knew for 36 days.
Have a great day, thank you for hearing me out. Any ideas on the situation would be much appreciated. It's hard to feel like a rock when you feel more like putty.
