Russell Armstrong's Family

He Was MURDERED

Russell Armstrong
's family isn't buying suicide as the cause of death ... they believe he was murdered, and they're putting a private dick on the case.

Although the L.A. County Coroner ruled Russell's death was a suicide by hanging, sources close to the situation say the family is convinced ... Russell's money problems caused him to get involved "with the wrong people."  They believe Russell may have screwed someone over out of desperation and that person or persons retaliated by killing him.

We're told the family is in the process of hiring a private investigator.

So, here is the family's thinking.. .Russell owed someone money and he did not pay. So, they killed Russell. How are they going to get paid now? Great logic...

These people are sick. My brother is a murderer. We, as a family, aren't going to defend his actions or blame other people for what he did. Deal with it. It sucks but **** happens. Let the poor guy rest in peace. People kill themselves for a reason.

I understand that they want to blame someone, BUT who's next...casper the friendly ghost? scooby? he was a grown man and he should be responsible for his own actions. He choose to give up and end his life. Blaming everyone from santa to the tooth fairy will not change that.

DON'T FORGET HIS BUSINESS PARTNER COMMITTED SUICIDE JUST @$ HRS LATER!!!

Think it's a coincidence??

riiiight.

Ask the folks in the TIGER 21 GROUP!!!

He screwed them, so they killed him AND his partner...

OR it was suicide and he was also banging this guy, who killed himself upon finding out his lover was dead..

HELLLO!!!
YOU ALL FORGOT THIS:

HIS BUSINESS PARTNER "KILLED HIMSELF' TOO,
24 HRS LATER!!!!
(gunshot to the head.....)

Both him and his business partner did themselves in??

REALLY???

riiiight.

Why aren't they reporting THAT???

These guys were BOTH involved with a financial group called TIGER 21, and when they F***ed EVERYONE, they were DONE IN!

His wife had NOTHING to do with it...unless she is the one who ratted hima nd his partner out to the "Tiger 21 Group", in payback for him beating her ass.....


Don't believe me about the partner?

RIGHT HERE:

another theory is it WAS suicide and dude was more than simply his 'business' partner, he was his lover and he pulled a romeo and juliet.....

"Private ****" is the common slang terminology. Sorry so many of you weren't aware. The cir****tances involving the business associate's death warrant taking a closer look at the situation.
