Maybe Shari ought to come with grips that Martin never committed the murders and take a long hard look at the players that have been implicated. It seems to me Shari & her ex are more concerned with keeping the truth from coming out rather than embark on a campaign to find out who killed Seymor & Arlene.
When all is said and done I'm sure Marty & his team will force the State to look into the case and the actions of the DAs office & the investigation. Martys' freedom is proof that this family will not rest until justice is served in these murders.

"McCready builds Riverhead restaurant to be run by Ron and Shari Rother, who inherited the family's estate after Martin Tankleff went to prison"

Yeah, as if there's no motivation here. The Rother's were more than happy to see Tankleff go to prison so that they could get their hands on the entire estate..

Then, there's the obvious issue of their association with McCready. Talk about an obvious motivation to see Tankleff stay in prison.

God forbid that his lawyers sue for his fair share of the family estate...

It's quite amazing how greed can manifest itself, isn't it?

Shari, shame shame shame on you!!!! You are the biggest loser. I grew up in pt jeff and I am the same age as Marty. I have had encounters with both McCready, and steuerman. Mccready has always been a lying drunk. Steuermans thugs carried this out. I have followed this case from the bginning, and know all the facts. If you know all the facts you know Marty is not guilty. It is disgusting to me that you have turned your back on your flesh and blood over your own thirst for money. You money grubbing whore! You will get whats coming to you, what goes around comes around. I hope Marty sues you for everything!!

I am with you 100%! A special prosecutor should be assigned before 1/18/08, before your piece of **** half-brother can go on with his life! Don't give up Shari! Alot of us agree with you! I am just so sorry that you lost your Dad and Step-Mom, Marty lost nothing because he has no soul!

Is she a half sister or a half wit? If she and/or her ex-husband has evidence of this crime and have not come forward, they may be in big trouble for aiding and abetting.

Shari states that she did not receive the 3 million dollar estate of the Tankleff's. Well, Marty does not have it, where did it go? Did Shari,Rother, and McCready spend it all ?

WHERE DID THE MONEY GO?

As far as I remember from the time that Martin Tankleff was convicted, his sister had petitioned, after the conviction, that the inheritence be forfeited to her.
If I am somehow remembering incorrectly, then,... well, if she didn't get the inheritance...who did?
Seems to me that with this dismissal of the conviction, his share of the inheritance is now rightly his. Bad news for Shari.....

This is ONLY about the money.

I'm from Port Jefferson, 2 years older than Martin Tankleff and I know what I remember.
What I also don't see being mentioned here is that he was adopted. Why is that?
Seems to me that Shari has a lot of reasons to think that the money should be all hers.

At the time of the murders, Jerry Steurmann faked his own death and made a run for it. Why would he do that if Marty was the killer and already arrested? We used to go to Jerry's bagel store and I clearly remember all the pictures of him and the race horses on the walls of the shop. And... I remember him. He was a player. What was he involved in that he would run after the Tankleffs were murdered?

Why would anyone NOT want their "brother" cleared and the real killers brought to justice?

Money. All of it. That's why.

there are 4 people who really know what happened here...the parents, who cant say, tankleff himself, and God..and tankleff will have to live with the fear of having to pay the price in the end if he did the murder, if not then he has nothing to fear. justice always gets served in the end.

BTW I don't actually know Martin Tankleff, if that's what anyone is wondering.
We were all kids at the time and in different districts, and I was in college at the time, but the murders and his arrest were the big story in town and everyone knew someone involved in the case, or lived in the same neighborhoods with them. And everyone was trying to figure out what had happened up there.
And everyone knew Jerry Steurmann from his store. Shari is considerably older than Marty and she's right about their relationship. From what we heard at the time, he was this kid that her parents adopted that she thought they shouldn't have.
That's what the rumor was around town, anyway.

What the freak does being adopted have to do with anything? What is your point?
