We didn't think this story could get any more shocking, but it has!
According to the fam, Russell Armstrong's money problems probably pushed him to get involved with some bad guys. If that's the case, the fam is thinking Russell might've done something behind their backs, inevitably leading to the thugs to get super pissed and murder him!
Now, even though the L.A. County Coroner ruled his death as suicide by hanging, sources say his family is convinced of foul play. And if anyone knows a thing or two about "the wrong kind of people," they know they can frame someone with 99.9 percent perfection.
So how can they prove it? Word is they're hiring a private investigator! Chilling!
We don't know if we agree, though. Russell had A LOT of baggage that was about to come out, and a lot of suicides are committed by perfectionists fearful of a fallen image. Remember when he told his mom, "they're going to crucify me," referring to Bravo? Or how about the rumors of a tell all book coming out to expose his supposed bisexuality? Not to mention all his money woes…
It's a horrible, horrible thing. We were gutted when we heard the news. Suicide is so tragic, but we know some people truly feel there's no way out. And all we're saying is it seems like the suicide, as shocking as it was at the time, wasn't so shocking once we found out about everything the poor man was going through.
But, hey, we're not his family! So if hiring a PI will help them find peace, so be it, and good luck. Whatever the answer is, we hope they find it.
