My family is very sorry for your loss. We have reviewed the evidence and Dateline episode and it is not just a maybe but an absolute certainty that her boyfriend has anger issues and killed your loved one. There is no doubt, but since the PD detective was not very good and did not look into this further and saw the evidence and spoke with her friends, that there is no way without an undercover investigation "I wish we could do the Mr. Big investigations like RCMP and get a confession but they are illegal in the US." Honestly if someone took justice into their own hands and punished this man, and I found myself on the jury of this vigilante I can promise this person would be found not guilty by my vote. I just feel the local PD let your family down. This is just so easy to figure out but the evidence is gone the investigation non existence for a homicide then there will not be charges unless you can get a confession. Look at the Mike WIlliams missing hunter in Lake Seminole, its so obvious but the investigation was for a missing person and now they know what happened but the evidence is not available so charges will not be filed unless they can find his body, more evidence, or undercover work. Both families deserve for the PD to go undercover, tap phones, really put some pressure on these people, also there are 3 killers in both these cases running free, they could hurt someone again. WE SUPPORT YOU, AND ONCE AGAIN WE ARE TRULY SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS.

That the cop investigating the scene first did not interview Joe immediately is incomprehensible. I'm not a detective but know the first person you investigate is the last person to see a victim alive, even if you think it's likely suicide you talk to that person. That's just common sense.
His investigation was clearly lackadaisical and incompetent. Without evidence what other conclusion could the later investigation come up with. Personally, I think it's more likely he killed her than she committed suicide, that's just an opinion but because of that idiot cop we'll never know. Keep in mind, a properly handled investigation could have completely exonerated Joe in the first place and saved everyone a lot of grief.
The sand on her feet was very compelling that it was murder. How could she have so much sand on her feet and not have it tracked throughout the apartment? Seems likely someone carried her into the bathroom.
It is also a possibility it was a serial killer who may have been following them around and just waiting for a chance to kill her. Sadly there are very crafty serial killers stalking beautiful young women just like her. There are likely men sitting in jail who have been convicted of murdering their wives or girlfriends because smart experienced serial killers leave little evidence and detectives default to the husband or BF.
Another reason I doubt suicide, it's very unusual for beautiful girls to hang, shoot themselves or jump off buildings. Vast majority of time they commit suicide they use pills. It's irrational but they don't want to damage their bodies in any way, pills don't do that. It's not impossible but just isn't likely.
That cop that did such a lousy job of investigating should be fired.

I just watched the Dr. Phil show in Belgium. This is unbelievable that someone just gets away with murder! Why is it so difficult to hand this case over to another police department so that your daughter can finally rest in peace? Never give up, I think you are really strong.

Dearest precious Mommy.....only a Mom who shared this precious childs soul, whose heart beats and very being intertwined within your womb before this precious child took her first breath.....can fully understand and deeply KNOW the love and bond a Mommy has with her child, who knows her child! I have 5 living children.....my heart, prayers and love go iut to you! I'm sooo proud of you....as I'm sure Sheena is!! I'd go all the way to the FBI!!! I just saw the show.....none of it looks like a suicide....and that Diaz seems a very very very heartless incompetent arrogant jerk. Not everyone who has a badge.....deserves that badge OR has integrity under that badge!! From one Mom to another.....I'm with you.....and throughout this....hold on to Jesus and find peace in Him.....He will open doors. You must find peace though sweet Mom....in my grief....I found myself having a stroke at 48 years old....my body just couldn't keep up with my inner grief and pain.....make sure you take care of you too along the way!! God WILL make a way, when there seems to be no way...He WILL make a way for you!! Hugs

First off I am so sorry for your loss. I could not comprehend the pain all this has caused. I feel compelled to comment and give my condolences after watching the Dr. Phil show today. I pray you find the answers you need. Know Sheena is happy wherever that may be.

I am so sorry for your loss. I have absolutely no faith in the criminal justice system in your state. The single issue with the police continuing this or any investigation is "money" which is even more appalling and frustrating. I just pray that justice will prevail for both you and your beautiful daughter.

I'm so sorry for the loss of Sheena. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Your appearance on Dr. Phil is what alerted me to your case. It's obvious that Joe is hiding something.
Please keep fighting for Sheena and know that many people, myself included, are praying for you and that you will get justice.

I am so sorry for your loss. I hope that God brings peace to your heart and helps to ease your pain. Know that no matter what, that monster can't hide from God. One way or another, justice will be served.

I support your family and I do not believe that Sheena took her own life and honestly based on the Polly graph test wether 100% right or not, that monster is in fact guilty! I can not believe how poorly this case was handled and I believe in justice for Sheena, as well as all her family and closest friends. Even her poor pups who had been there while this nasty thing happened.
I certainly hope all of you get closure and I hope this case gets closed with the correct ruling! God bless all and I wish all of you the best of luck! I am so happy none of you gave up on this! True angels on earth!

I keep going over everything over and over. Something has drawn me to this case and I just don't understand why they are still determining suicide. They are basically telling the public if you want to kill someone and get away with it come to Florida. We offer oranges, beaches and murder victims. Or welcome to Florida home of Joe G. And Casey Anthony! It's rediculous! We are all on your side Kelly and Dave. Hopefully others will see your amazing strength and courage and it will help them get through similar situations. As a mother of three you inspire me so much I cannot put it into words. From the bottom of my heart I thank you so so much. I would love to hear from you but I know u get thousands of these so I understand if your too busy. I look forward to the day Sheena gets justice. Even if that just means her murderer is six feet under. Again thank you Kelly you are an amazing woman! Sarah Eddy, Florence, KY.

You have my support, my heart and friendship. You ask and I will try to help. Breaks my heart that Sheena is gone and no way to get answers. Keep up the faith Kelly and Dave - may justice prevail in 2014!

Watching this story made my heart ache for Sheena and her amazing family and friends. It also goes to show how much one life can touch so many. I hope justice prevails and her killer is put behind bars where he belongs. He may have fooled police but even from the outside looking in we know who is responsible for this devastating tragedy. Keep fighting and hopefully someday the truth will be know. I may be halfway across the country but my heart is with you all. From, Sarah E. Florence, ky

You have fought as hard for justice for your daughter as any parents ever could. She would be so proud of you. She rests in your love. Please love yourselfs and take good care of yourselves as I am sure she would want you to. You may never bring her killer to justice but the creator sees all and knows all and the person who murdered your daughter will have to answer for his actions. Leave this fight now to God alone. You have proven your mettle and the worth of your love. She will have justice just perhaps not in this physical plane. Rest in faith and peace. You are in my thoughts as a mother myself and I pray for you and for justice.

Don't give up. Someday somebody will trip up and the lies will all come tumbling down.

It upsets me to think that he has got away with it. Keep strong!

I have just watched the 20/20 show about your daughter's death. I can understand your frustration at the ineptness of how this investigation was handled. Keep up the pressure. It looks like your new mayor will give you as much help as you need. I will keep checking for updates. GOOD LUCK!!!!!
