I would investigate husband. His first wife committed suicide also and he works for an insurance company as a partner. something is fishy about this whole story. Her family should have this whole thing investigated. She did not seem like the type who would kill her own child especially one she wanted.

Yes. His ex-wife committed suicide and so did his wife. The logical question is what people were connected to both women.
It doesn't make sense. I don't have confidence in the police department of a small town to solve this accurately-they don;t have enough experience.

Sadly Julia you may be right. Although the department has good intentions and wants to conduct the investigation they are often over their head. They should call in the Major Crimes Unit of the State Police. Who knows, maybe the prosecutor has.

I wonder if the police have investigated the Patti Graham Hawthorne case any further. I also believe a Crime Unit of the State Police should investigate this matter further. There are things that just don't make sense about the case. Very strange that his ex wife and wife committed suicide less then 6 months apart. Her family should look for answers.

Definitely seems like a matter that deserves more investigation. I'd known Patty; as did anyone else who came into contact with her - not something she would have done.
Anyone know how to elevate the issue and get the state involved?

Could it be that the child accidentally drowned and that the mother, upon finding the child dead, killed herself?
