Many people are passionate about the Rebecca Zahau case, whether you believe or question the authorities' conclusion that she killed herself.
I support and enjoy reading a healthy dialogue about the evidence and issues in the Spreckels case.
However, I've received repeated complaints from both sides of the debate. And while commenters mostly police themselves, I find it necessary to remind everyone that Patch promotes productive and civil discourse.
That means no name calling—for each other or of the subjects involved.
And I must insist: No taking pot shots at a dead woman. Regardless of how you feel about her cause of death, she is dead and not available to defend herself. Please show some respect.
This death was ruled a suicide and no charges have been filed. Even if they had been, no one can be labeled a murderer, because that requires a conviction in a court of law. In addition, a person's appearance or ethnicity has little or nothing to do with this investigation.
I continue to appreciate those who take the lead and flag comments when necessary and don't abuse the privilege just because they disagree with someone's statement.
Thank you for your time. I welcome your continued participation.
