Midgy86..I read this story several times and did not come up with the same conclusion as you (ie. that she knew something and had second throughts and recanted). I worked for a civil attorney and you would not imagine what lengths people would go to to try and stop visition between the parents and children. So yes, I can see the woman seeing an opportunity to put the father in a bad light and going so far as to implicate him in a murder. I don't know the family, the father may be a P.O.S., but falsely accusing him of being involved in someone's death is definetly not the way to stop visitation.

Foul play is rather hard to prove in a dr owning death in an open body of water.I'm sure they found water in his lungs. proving he was alive when was in the water before he drowned. It was a tragic death

"The autopsy results on Travis' body later indicated there had been no foul play, and he had died from drowning."

Autopsy's are not performed by the sheriff's department. So, first, if anything was missed, it wasn't something they missed. Second, the autopsy report is done by a trained and highly skilled professional. So, the chances that anything was missed is very slim. Third, accidents happen all the time. There are some situations that the best swimmers in the world could not be prepared for. Finally, what in the world would be gained by a cover-up? This was just a very tragic accident that left a life cut way too short. Nothing more.

Weird indeed. If she didn't want the father of her grandchild to see the child much better ways than to accuse him of murder. It sounds to me she did know something & then had second thoughts & recanted. I'm sure wonderful washtington county sherrif has failed again. Sorry, but a military man drowning? Seriously, they are trained in all situations for christ sake. Sounds like foul play to me.
