One year later, the GBI investigation has not only failed to answer the initial questions that many friends of the family had but it has generated new questions that still beg for answers. For example :

1.        If Bruce wanted to kill his wife and commit suicide why would he buy another untraceable gun rather than use the one he already had?

2.        Why would Bruce decide to kill himself and his wife because he received a foreclosure notice on a home that they had already decided to sell two months earlier?

3.        Why would Bruce, who was so highly supportive of Nancy's efforts for decades, including her CPS/DFCS work, decide to kill her just at the peak of one of her most important works?

4.        If Bruce was under financial stress, why did he not show any signs of it up to and including the evening of the couple's death?

5.        If Bruce was under financial stress why wouldn't he turn to any or all of his five grown children who loved him and would have wanted to help?

6.        Why would Bruce consider the couple's financial situation so severe when their assets still appeared to exceed or roughly their debt?

7.        Why would the suicide notes have so much information on the couple's debts but not contain any instructions on how to liquidate the couple's assets?

8.        If the couple was under such financial stress, why would Bruce jeopardize any chance of the family collecting life insurance benefits by committing suicide and killing his wife?

9.        Why would Bruce decide to deprive both he and Nancy of seeing the grandchildren who they loved so dearly grow up?

10.    Why would Bruce never mention the grandchildren he loved so dearly in the extensive suicide notes?

11.    Why would Bruce knowingly take a drastic action that would devastate the children and grandchildren who loved him so much?

12.    Why would Bruce commit such an act that was so against his faith and completely out of character for him according to those who know him best?

13.    Why would the GBI be unwilling to properly investigate and rule out the possibility of a professional assassination given the circumstances and high profile nature of the case?

 

CONCLUSION
GBI spokesperson, John Bankhead, initially promised Fox 5 News "there will be a thorough investigation" given the high profile circumstances of the case. That thoroughness obviously never materialized. The Final Investigative Summary contains only one paragraph to summarize the findings of murder-suicide, relying on the suicide notes for that conclusion. There is no rationale in the summary to explain how the conclusion was reached, what other scenarios were considered or how other scenarios were ruled out.   While the GBI may have come to the correct conclusion, the only thing consistent with a "thorough investigation" seems to be the amount of time that the case was left open.
