Taylor Armstrong

Meets with Coroner Over

Russell Armstrong's Suicide

8/26/2011 11:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the L.A. County Coroner just paid a visit to Taylor Armstrong to find out what she knows about Russell Armstrong's suicide, and the trip was necessary because Taylor has not made herself available for more than a week.

Sources tell TMZ ... The Coroner's office wanted the meeting because Taylor was at the scene of Russell's suicide when his body was discovered nearly 2 weeks ago.  Investigators were not able to speak with Taylor that day because she left before they arrived.

L.A. County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter met with Taylor at home for a half hour and discussed, among other things, Russell's state of mind in the weeks leading up to his death, his drug use and whether he was under a doctor's care. 

0826_coronor_sub_swipe_splash_3Sources say Taylor told Winter ... Russell was not under any regimen of drugs and she had absolutely no idea he would commit suicide.

Winters left Taylor's house moments ago (video below) -- and according to him, it's the first time he has interviewed the housewife since Russell's death.

I don't believe a WORD this fame-hungry, SKANK has to say. Where are these supposed photos of her face after she was supposedly hit?
-
I'm willing to bet that the true cause was her plastic surgery - which was BOTCHED! Just look at that cartoonish face! It's 10X worse when she smiles! STOP IT!
-
Her unyielding quest for fame & money, money, money is what drove this man to suicide.

"We're told the Coroner *has been trying to arrange a meeting ever since (what?), but she *has not responded."

This makes the story unclear...shouldn't this be past tense if she's met with them now?

Although Taylor is odd, I highly doubt she had anything to do with his death. Life is a bitch and sometimes people just can't handle it.

It is a little curious as to why the coroner's office needs to speak with her so badly. The cause of death seems straight-forward, and a blood test should clarify what he was on. Does make one wonder whether they suspect something fishy was going on.

Maybe Russell thought he was worth more dead than alive (most life insurance companies will pay for a death by suicide if the policy is older than two years). Maybe Taylor pushed him into doing it. Why would she leave before the Coroner arrived?

Again the drama continues; some of the other media outlets showed Taylor being carried out of the Memorial; she was so upset. Again it's a sad situation and I feel for the kids but the drama in this is too much. Alright already!

PROBABLY IN A FIGHT HE THREATENED TO TAKE HIS OWN LIFE AND SHE SAID GO FOR IT. INSTEAD OF TRYING TO HELP HIM SHE BOOTED HIM OUT OF THERE HOUSE.

Stop for a second; you don't really think this lip-pumped narcissistic trophy wife actually has the smarts to pull off a murder, do you? If anything...I think he offed himself just to get away from her. Bitches like this tend to get under foot on a daily basis. Sometimes the only way to get out...is to check out!

If he beat her the day of his death and she called her friends rather than the cops...and there is no suicide note...then maybe there is a little 'splaining to do.
