This case is so obvious it's ridiculous. Clearly her husband killed her. They were both likely drug users (not at all shaming them or judging them, it's just relevant) and he probably owed someone a debt or was going to rat on someone. Sean is just a standard wife-beating wannabe cop pos. And he got his pig friends to cover up the fact that he abused and murdered his wife. It's literally that simple. One of the cops that backed up his "alibi" even killed his own wife and staged it. Like, are you kidding me? Disgusting.

On episode 13 right now. I am on the fence about suicide or murder. I suppose anything is possible but: 1. not waking up to a gun shot 2. changing stories from all parties 3. livor mortis 4. time of death (neighbor hearing gun shot 2 hours earlier) 5. blood outside door 6. who found him (different stories) 7. the jeep being moved So many questions. I want to say she did it but I don't have enough solid evidence.

Boy, did these guys drop Rae like a hot potato once they found out she was lying about Christians death or what? She hoodwinked us all. RIP Christian. Hopefully one day your momma will let you RIP too.

Rae keep on lying. More and more people are examining the casefile and know you hoodwinked us all at first. Thing is we aren't all as dumb as you think. Anyone reading this please read the casefile if you think he was murdered. It's HUGELY eye opening and proves Rae lied to Culpable. Why do you think they washed their hands of Rae?

I certainly hope these guys get it right this time cause boy did they buy Rae's lies in season 1 with no proof. Once they got the casefile to review they knew the truth: that Cristian did it to himself.

Okay if Christian took off his jumpsuit where was it? He would've had it with him still because he would need it the following day. He was definitely murdered.

"I can't talk to her because she's a minor." It's amazing how he can't go out and question a minor, that happens to be a white female. Yet the police have NO PROBLEM interrogating minor black and brown men and women into, most of the time, false confessions. Note, The Central Park Five, etc. There are more than enough conflicting stories and such to question her further. This is absolutely mind boggling and absurd. Christian and his family deserve justice!

Considering as that it sounds like she has a drug problem, is homeless, about to be without a vehicle and Christian always paid for everything, she knew he had money. Money is always the biggest motivation in murder. This chick definitely did it. I'm sure Dillon helped in some way too. People with drug and alcohol habits are pretty shady and will do just about anything to get a fix. I'm not saying all are but a good majority are.
