Do you agree with this Pulitzer-prize winning author’s version of how Vincent van Gogh died?

There’s a serious problem with this “new” version of events. Do you see it? Rene Secretan is rumored to be a kid that taunted Van Gogh and claims he[Secretan] stole a gun from the Ravoux Inn. There’s just a very obvious piece missing. Why didn’t anyone even ask Secretan if he killed Van Gogh if that was the theory, and if that’s why he was interviewed?

Rebecca Zahau: More Thoughts

Thanks to Sylvester for sharing your thoughts.
I watched Marcia Clark’s Season 1 Episode 5 on the death at the Spreckles Mansion last night- from her show “The First 48.”  I had listened to the podcast, but not seen the episode.  I learned a few things, which I am sure you covered in your second Zahau book, but in any regard, I wanted to let you know what they are. I thought it was very well done, maybe even better than the Oxygen presentation.  
She had a long clip of Dina Shacknai crying telling Marcia what a smiling happy boy Max was. But there was only a very small clip, later, almost as if it had been clipped of Dina telling Marcia she didn’t think Rebecca committed suicide.  She repeated Jonah’s comment about Rebecca’s death being “Asian honor.”  I’m wondering if she initially may have thought Jonah had something to do with it, but she was cut off from expanding on that statement.
Then Marty Rudoy, an attorney hired by the Zahau family during the initial investigation into her death, said he believed the “hanging” was done backwards.  That the rope was measured for length, and that she never went over the balcony but was hoisted up from the ground.  That was one of the reasons the bed barely moved.  I had thought that myself.  He said her dirty feet were too dirty for it to have been from the dusty balcony, and that she was likely in the garden at some point.  Also that Adam wouldn’t have stood on a three legged table to cut her down, it wouldn’t have held him.  If  she could be hoisted from the ground up, she could also be lowered from the top down couldn’t she?  He would need to measure the length of rope to get it just right, and I agree with that. 
Dr. Wecht, after having her body exhumed and performing a second autopsy found four subscalpular hemorrhages, high up on her head. Of course the Sheriff’s department (Gore) believes she suffered those from swinging into the underside of the balcony. I do not.  
And last, which was very shocking, Mary asked to speak to Adam after learning of Rebecca’s death.  She asked him what happened.  He told her “I don’t want to push someone else over the edge”, stating he didn’t want to go into what happened.  I don’t take that literally, and I’m still considering what he may have meant by that, but my initial thought is that there could have been someone else involved.  Someone he didn’t want to have “go over the edge” mentally along with Rebecca and Max.   Or, that the death of Rebecca mimics the death of Max – one over the edge of a banister, the other over the edge of a balcony.  But who else would be left to go over the edge that by recounting his tale, would have pushed them?
Also I read that Caitlin Rother, true crime writer, is planning on writing a book about this case to be released 2021.guest_posting

CCTV shows Heidi Broussard got into Maygen’s car – Willingly

Note: TCRS will be following Heidi’s spelling of Maygen’s name – with a Y. ABC and the Daily Mail have not, preferring to spell her name Magen, but TCRS will stick to the convention used by Heidi herself.

Video at Broussard’s Austin apartment complex captured her getting into Fieramusca’s car willingly on Dec. 12, the day she went missing, said sources. Margot was with her. They were old friends.ABC13

Why would Heidi willingly get into Maygen’s car if not because she’d just been assaulted by Shane? She may have left under the ruse that her and Maygen were simply going to sit in the car, or around the corner to have coffee. It does seem strange that no baby-related items appear to have been taken with. It doesn’t seem as if Heidi thought she was going to be on the road for over two hours, to Houston.

The Daily Mail also provides this insight into Maygen’s relationship – rent free – with Chriostopher Green:

Neighbors of Fieramusca said she lived in the Houston home with Christopher Green, who owned the residence. Green, who was named on Humphrey’s baby register, is actually her landlord, DailyMail.com can disclose. Green, 33, has owned the home since 2015. He has not been charged in connection to the case.

Speaking outside her Houston home, his mother Christine Green, 54, said her son had been renting the property to Humphrey for two years. She dismissed any notion that his relationship with Fieramusca was closer than landlord and tenant and claimed she ‘had never paid rent’. Asked if her son had been in a relationship with Fieramusca, who also went by Humphrey, she said: ‘No, she lived there. That was it. She never paid the rent. She was there for two years and never paid a thing.’

However, Green bailed out Fieramusca out of jail in 2018 after she was arrested for theft for allegedly stealing money [$5000] from an Ace Express check cashing business where she worked as assistant manager. The case was dismissed for lack of evidence.

Green is thought to have no connection with Broussard and was not at the home when her body was discovered.

It’s the neighbor’s version of hearing a muffled scuffle at around 14:00 in Heidi’s apartment that suggests foul play of some kind started in Austin, and that Shane knows more than he’s been letting on.
