Comments by Richard and Selma Eikelenboom
It seems that the Colorado Bureau of Investigation concluded that it was a suicide. We are very interested which facts lead to this conclusion. Some facts in this case are very disturbing, like the broken collar bone, the left hand inside the ligature and the horizontal mark left by the ligature. These facts are very rare in a suicide by hanging. There are more strange findings. The final conclusion should be based on thorough investigations, including the investigation of touch DNA on the strangulation cord. There is little reason for other persons to leave touch DNA on the strangulation cord except maybe for the roommate who found her hanging, if this was a suicide. There are all kinds of patterns on the body which are still not explained and can be investigated. In this case a proper crime scene reconstruction should be performed. Scenario’s for suicide and homicide can be reconstructed and tested. It is strange that CBI was not interested in the materials we collected at the crime scene and from the body of Holly Moore.

We have extensive experience with murders and suicides. The facts in this case are very disturbing. In several other cases, we advised families that it is more likely that their loved ones killed themselves. That was not what they wanted to hear but the facts pointed in that direction. Of course, some people will say we have an interest in the case to earn money. Those people have to keep in mind that we hardly charged anything for our investigations and we recommended the family to get the Colorado Bureau of Investigation involved. They should do all the necessary investigations without the family to pay for it. We will wait with further statements till we get the results of their investigations.
