It was New Year's day of 2009 when young, beautiful, family oriented Sheena Morris was found hanged in her hotel room which she was sharing with her fiance'.  Earlier in the night a 911 call from another guest in the hotel suggested the two had been involved in a domestic dispute.  When police arrived, the boyfriend Joseph Genose walked right past them, entered his car and left the scene.  Police left without filing a report or noting the obvious physical injuries to Sheena's body.  At 1:52 am, Sheena texted Joseph and stated "I took pictures".  At 2:03 am, Sheena called 911 stating Jospeh may be going to her house to ransack it and that he had taken her purse.  The text between the two continued until 2:55 am.  The last text came from Genose to Sheena stating "You chose to stay I offered to take you home".  Sheena never replied.  The next day, Sheena was found dead.  She was hanging in an ackward position in the shower.  Sand was between her toes and covered her feet, yet no sand was in the shower or on the bathroom floor.  The purse which Joseph had taken was back in the room.  The one and only detective ruled the case an obvious suicide from a suicidal female upset about an arguement with her fiance'on New Year's.  The detective and his Chief stand by their decesion and refuse to re-open the case despite three forensic experts contradicting a suicide.  Joseph Genose was never charged in Sheena's death.  This Wednesday our guest will be Kelly Osborn, Sheena's mother who fights daily to have Sheena's case reopened.  We will look at the circumstances surronding Sheena's death and look at the history of Joseph Genose from The Other Side of Justice.
