What was her hurry to get off the phone? Didn't any body check her cell phone records to see if she placed any calls after she called 911? Why, if she hung up on 911, did she "forget" to call her friend to let her know something was wrong? Or...

What was her hurry to get off the phone? Didn't any body check her cell phone records to see if she placed any calls after she called 911? Why, if she hung up on 911, did she "forget" to call her friend to let her know something was wrong? Or didn't she? Only one way to find that out...check the records of her cell phone, the victim's cell phone and did his wife carry a cell phone or did she use the hospital phone to call her husband?

I, too, believe this is very suspicious as well. But, I can also speak from experience when I say sometimes, depending on the individual, in an extremely stressful situation we become overwhelmed with worry or stress. Her brain might've told her...

I, too, believe this is very suspicious as well. But, I can also speak from experience when I say sometimes, depending on the individual, in an extremely stressful situation we become overwhelmed with worry or stress. Her brain might've told her she had to wait outside for the ambulance. I've Left the side of a girl who overdosed to go outside and meet with the ambulance. I practiced CPR on her until I heardthe sirens coming in the distance and than I left her to meet them outside. They did claim that I kept her alive long enough until they got there and she's alive and clean today.
My point though is some people who are overwhelmed with emotions make decisions that others "think" is the opposite of what they might do. Truth is, one never knows what one might do until one is put directly into this situation. You might find yourself unable to think logically as you believe you would.

You're absolutely right - we all can act irrationally and also beyond what we thought ourselves capable of in times of real stress. It easy to judge from our easy-chairs.

Also, I believe the detective should check her phone records if for nothing more than to rule her out.
