Today I’m filled with emotions that could go left or right. Today marks the 30th anniversary of when we think Keith died. I apologize in advance for the images you are about to see but I need you to understand my frustration, aggravation, irritation, and pain of not understanding how a competent law enforcement agency could label this as a suicide. The images are of Keith when he was found on the tree taken by the Montgomery County Maryland Police Department show that there is more to the story than what the lead detective wanted my family to believe. I will not make this a long post but what I will do is allow you to make your own determination:
1. Feet are on the ground in a sitting position.
2. Hands are balled up in a fist as if he were in a fight.
3. Rope is tangled around his shirt collar. So I guess Keith in his rush to kill himself got his collar tangled up?
4. Tongue is protruding on the side of cheek as if he were laying down and then hoisted up.
How can the Montgomery County Maryland Police Department continue to believe that there is nothing wrong here and that this was a suicide? How could they allow my mother to suffer for 23yrs knowing in her heart that someone killed her only son? How could the lead detective lay his head down every night with a clear conscious? How could the lead detective go on with his life while the justice system in Montgomery County Maryland destroyed my mom’s? How can a just and fair legal system allow this to continue and not acknowledge that there is something very wrong here?
