A panel of law enforcement experts who reviewed the investigation into a 22-year-old woman's death say the case should be reopened.
The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports that a law enforcement review panel assembled by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement held a closed-door meeting last month to go over the Bradenton Beach police investigation of the death of Sheena Morris. This week, they ruled that the case should be reinvestigated.
Morris' death was ruled a suicide in 2009. Her mother has maintained that her daughter was murdered, and that her body was posed to make it look like she hanged herself.
What happens next is up to Bradenton Beach Police Chief Sam Speciale, who has declined requests to reopen the case in the past.
