who's to judge anyone here...cjg do you know more than the reports? you know the saying...you think you know, but you have no idea? learn alittle before assuming media knows the whole truth and nothing but the truth! MI was not being disrespectful either...Mrs. Varrone deserves to be respected yes & that is by more than possibly 1 days investigation! RIP Mrs. Varrone!

To cjg in Lake Mary - There was a recent high profile TRAGIC case where you are... and last I heard, in the longer investigation, they were waiting for autopsy results to know whether Pam Brady killed herself or was killed by her husband. Is that why the speculation upsets you so much - or are you connected to Melissa and Tony from a distance - or it's just hard to see people sound like they know?
I would like to see a longer investigation for Melissa, and I'm all the way in Tacoma. People close to Tony or Melissa want others to butt out - UNDERSTANDABLY but to me it seems like a thorough investigation is sometimes for the public... to alleviate speculations. I would never say Tony hurt Melissa in any way. How could I? But I can say YIKES, from the information I collect I can say I wonder how they could know without a doubt that fast.
I've asked some law enforcement people that I know and the one day investigation does not seem out of line where there are no concerns - and I was told that actually the medical examiner can come and make a ruling the same day if that is what the police decide to let happen. So the one day investigation to them, the police, probably seems more than sufficient - if they have no reason to question the account and what they see.

Here is the information that I work with and why I am probably biased about deeper invstigations - just a sample:
...A family claims Albuquerque police officers ruined an investigation that could have determined whether the death of a loved on was suicide or murder. In October 2007, Tera Andrea Chavez was found dead in her Valencia County home. Investigators determined she died after the police issued gun of her husband, APD officer Levi Chavez, went off in her mouth...

[OFFICER IS INDICTED, TRIAL PENDING]
I apologize to all who are offended and angered but I think a life is worth asking a few questions about. I regret the pain it causes but silence never PROMOSTES truth and speaking out never ERASES truth. What's true is what's true. If Melissa tragically took her own life, then she did.

I knew Melissa very good we grew up together. I had spoke to her just a couple of days before her death. She was happy, We were talking about getting the kids together within the next week and she told me she would talk to me in a couple of days. She wasnt mentaly unstable and she loved her little boy. I believe with all my heart that she DID NOT take her own life. And its kinda wierd that her husband was home!!!

I am on the same page...If I was related to her I would demand further investigation...she will be remembered like this forever...Ive lost a few friends to overdose and 1 to suicide and its hard to cope...your mad but sad and feel even worse for the families...if her husband who was home was involved then justice should be served! I dont care who he is, who his family is, who he knows...its about justice! Problem is if he did do this and he doesnt feel guilty, maybe there is more to him than people know, he might be capable to succeed in other cases too if people keep looking the other way!

Because he's a Rotterdam cop everyone thinks he was involved? That shit is being covered up for him? Hello, Rotterdam is a small town and he was a relatively new cop, I dont see where people think he's getting special treatment or that they concluded too quickly.

So what if he's home? My bestfriend tried to kill herself and her parents were home. Does that mean if she had succeeded then they should have been looked into as well??

People kill themselves. Even people that look and seem happy. And a lot of the time, others don't know how bad the depression can be.

I stand by Tony 100%. He is a grieving husband that just lost his wife. My heart goes out to him.

Just because she has had a child doesn't mean she wouldn't have killed herself. Maybe she felt this was the only way out. You talk about putting the child first, maybe in her eyes she was. Maybe she felt like he would be better off without her. And I stand by Tony because I know he wouldn't have anything to do with this and would probably give his own life to have her back.

Rotterdam is a small town and worst things have happened here. No he's not real new but he's not exactly a veteran of the force either. Face it, the only reason people are causing drama is because he is an officer of the law and was home at the time. If even one of those was not the case people would be more focused on the real issue here- the loss of this person and not the idea of blaming Tony. Cause God forbid someone actually commits suicide...what are the chances!?

You are heartless...people commit suicide for many reasons...but the act is SELFISHNESS...its official, not for attention...
I dont know her...but i know very very credible people...they all have stated that she is not the kind of person to pull the trigger on herself...her child meant the world to her...and they do know for fact she DID not pull that trigger on herself with intent/others may have been involved...that is as far into detail as i have received...because i personally was told not to get involved...the TRUTH sucks on this one for sure...
Stop protecting people you dont know!!!
I am one to call it how the FACTS show...
I told you before rotterdam is not protecting him...they are protecting themselves!!!
Obviously this was a personal matter that got outta hand between more than just 2 people!!!
Have A Lovely Day...& Remember That Life Is A Choice...Only Those That Truley Are Selfish Would Commit An Act Like Suicide...Dont Ever Brush Off The Intent Like Its Yesterday's News...Because Every Case Is Important In Its Own...And No Community More Than Rotterdam Will Pull Together To Support One Another!!!

Do any of you actually know the suicide rate in america? You want to point fingers because he's a police officer...PATHETIC. Your are right in one aspect most of the system cant be trusted and its full of holes but I was in a bad DV situation for quite sometime unfortunatly and OFFICER Varrone and other Officers assisted me with getting out of it and it was clear that the Officer that were sent to my house werent just "doing their job", They were totally against what was going on and wanted to go the extra mile to help me out, not just write a report!I also knew Melissa from the bar and going out. People usually try to hide their negative feelings. they dont walk around saying 'my life sucks''I hurt inside''help me'. Most often they keep it in until something tragic like this happens. Leave him alone and let him greive!Maybe the facts were there, she was selfish and killed herself, all evidence concluded so no need for further investigation. And you all want to point the finger elsewhere when most of you didnt know either party. Like I said PATHETIC!

Jen is absolutely right. Did any of you ever see Tony and Melissa out together? Or out with their son? You're probably saying no, but I have. I lived in Rotterdam most of my life. They appeared to be a Happy Family who went out and did things together like most other families. If you dont know them or of them you've got not fingers to point.
