How am I supposed to solve a crime without a clear-cut and enlarged image from which I can draw conclusions based upon what is depicted? I can't fathom how I pay money and be left with a miniscule picture that does not assist in helping me solve...

Autopsy report: COD drug OD.
So then why the signs of a struggle?
Where did the extension cord come from? Does it belong to the victim? &/or the husband?
Can't see feathers.
Small dogs can often more vicious than big ones.
Curious.

Was the sign of a struggle staged? By whom, I wonder......

DetEmily, You're right, I think. The whole set up looks staged. Pillows placed around the floor, she's propped dramatically on the couch, lamp tipped but not broken, and not apparent glass or glasses in view.

We know from the autopsy that she wasn't strangled but OD'd. A supposed 'burglary" that left her 'diamond' jewelry behind.
The question will be why stage an invasion when a spiked drink leading to overdose would get rid/ silence Kelly. The missing IPad.....
Would the cord leave marks after death?

Her head was facing north while her left arm was pointing south and there was an extension cord wrapped around her neck, I think she was strangled from the back while she was talking on her cell phone, the cell phont was found near her on the sofa..
The lamp was laid down not knocked over. Theres an open tool box on the kitchen counter beind her, that must be where the extension cord came from, no killer would bring their own tool kit to a killing and leave it there. Only the sofa pillows were thrown around.

There wasn't sufficient bruising for death by strangulation, also surely she would have dug her nails into an attacker. lol. Some 'organised' Serial killers studied by the FBI bought their own kill kits apparently. Well according to John Douglas...
