Taylor Armstrong

Coroner Wants an Interview

8/21/2011 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819-taylor-armstrong-doc-cola-EX
The L.A. County Coroner's office wants to interview Taylor Armstrong about Russell Armstrong's death ... TMZ has learned after placing several calls to the Coroner.

We're told the Coroner has a number of questions about things she knows about Russell, including:

-- Russell's medical history
-- Medication history
-- References he may have made about suicide
-- State of mind in the weeks preceding his death

As TMZ first reported, Taylor was on the property where Russell committed suicide when his body was discovered, however she left before the Coroner arrived.  The Coroner's office has contacted Taylor about an interview, but they have not heard back from her.

The Coroner has already determined ... the cause of Russell's death was suicide by hanging, but the toxicology report is still pending.

Friend?    

The 16th of Aug you guys reported in the article: Eyewitness When Husband's Body Was Discovered

"We're told Taylor stayed at the house for hours after the body was found."

And in this article she´d left before the coroner arrived?

When I change the channel all I see are shows about sex predators, murderers, money grubbing animals, cheaters, addicts, people with no self discipline, snotty children who need nannies to teach the unqualified parents, hoarders, manipulators, scantilly clad bimbos and pimps and show like this that promote bullying...in adults. I am so sick of it. The country is in a depression. We need to work together. BRING BACK FONZIE.

I am sure she will try to look like the victim here. I believe he was the victim. He had a wife who didn't like the fact that his money had dwindled over the years and wanted a divorce. I think that broke him even more. You can't blame the show at all. It was a greedy wife who put their lives on the screen on a show that saw Camille Grammar go through a public divorce on it. It doesn't make sense she left before the coroner came to me. I know it had to be shocking but why would she not stay and talk to them then? Who's house was it anyway and how did she find out that he was there? If he was abusive then maybe sh eis relieved?

Of course the coroner wants an interview. Coroners work with dead things, and he wants to find out why those ugly rubber lips keep moving.

I think the show should televise the funeral, and the autopsy results should be shown. Also the wife should bring a date to the funeral.

The smirk on Taylor's face suggest suspicion.

It's an old detective trick:They call the suspect in for an interview. Then they sit her at a table and ask her to wait. On the table is a harmless looking piece of string. They want to see if she picks up the string and fashions the string into a noose. If she does they take her away in cuffs.

He was probably one of those douche bags who threaten suicide everyday to where you end up ignoring it after you hear it over and over. This guy was a slime ball. It will all come out soon.

When someone passes and isn't under the care of a physician that can verify medical history, the coroner must complete the deceaseds' medical history and anomalies (e.g. mental anguish/impairment).

When my dad passed at home my mother had to give the coroner all of his Doctors name and the hospitals he had surgery and what he was treated for - he certified his death once his current doctors responded.

It's a formality! Every coroner must perform this task, even in podunk - where my parents live!

This man has a long history of abuse and financial misdeeds!

Stop trying to make this MONSTER of man a saint - because he wasn't.

No one forced him to choke his six month pregnant wife or hit his girlfriend when she was calling 911 or abusing his oldest son or knocking a business partners teeth-out or hitting Taylor (breaking her eye-socket)!

If he liked dudes, all he had to do was get divorced and live his life - it's freaking BelAir, California - he lived in the second gayest place in California - WEST LA!
