'Real H'wives' Russell Armstrong

Dad Feuding with Coroner

My SON WAS MURDERED!

EXCLUSIVE

0829-russell-armstrong-tmz-01Former "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Russell Armstrong's dad thinks his son's death in 2011 wasn't a suicide -- he believes it was murder, and he claims Taylor Armstrong won't help him prove it.

According to court docs obtained by TMZ ... Louie Armstrong is asking the court to force the L.A. County Coroner's office to fork over Russell's autopsy pics, which he plans to have checked out by his own forensic specialist.

As we previously reported ... Russell's family hired a private detective after his suicide in 2011 -- because they were convinced he was killed.

Armstrong seems to think Taylor would have better luck obtaining the photos, since she was Russell's next of kin at the time of his death. In the docs, he says she refuses to assist his efforts. 

We reached out to Taylor. So far, no word back.

Sometimes, family cannot accept that a loved one would harm themselves in such a manner. It is difficult to come to Terms with. I know firsthand, unfortunately, what it's like to have a family member take their own life. Russell had plenty of reasons (in his own mind) to do what he did. From the state of his business, money problems, the fact that he was abusing Taylor, and all caught on reality TV. The world saw his "dirty laundry". This family is hurting, but they need to accept what happened.

Why would she help? She just got married and trying to move on from the man who abused her. Sorry dad he died by hanging... 1.) he had huge financial issues 2.) he was losing control of his wife... Those 2 things have suicide written all over him.

She is too busy having another surgery to complete her transformation into an anorexic zombie

I'm sure Taylor isn't interested in opening that wound she may still be healing from. She's moved on with her life. I wonder what makes this man thinks it was murder?!
