Dem Mayor Caught Up In Horrific Murder Investigation
The family of a Philadelphia teacher found dead 12 years ago in a horrific blizzard-night murder has been demanding an explanation from local authorities ever since.
Now, their quest for answers just may take a step closer to resolution.
In August 2022, the Chester County District Attorney’s Office began an outside investigation into the death of Ellen Greenberg after two prosecutors – Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner and former Attorney General Josh Shapiro, both Democrats – recused themselves from reinvestigating the case. Greenberg, 27, was found dead in her apartment the morning after a blizzard in 2010. She had 20 stab wounds, including 10 to the back of her head and neck, and was covered in bruises in different states of healing.
Her parents, Sandee and Dr. Josh Greenberg have fought city and state leaders for an explanation ever since.
"It's hard to believe with the number of facts in the universe that no one can understand where we stand right now," Sandee Greenberg said. "And the politicians, they are unconscionable."
The medical examiner's office initially ruled Greenberg's death a homicide but then called it a suicide after a meeting with police and prosecutors; however, they have not publicly explained how they reached that conclusion. After Ellen's parents challenged city and state leaders in two separate court cases, the Chester County DA began its investigation. But a key impetus for the probe may have started with an independent journalist's YouTube video which alleged that then-Attorney General Shapiro had a "clear conflict of interest" due to his campaign donors' being related to the fiance of Ellen Greenberg.
The Governor's office didn't respond to Fox News Digital's request for comment, but Shapiro's then-communications director said in a statement, "Our office regrets that, despite our extensive work, our additional efforts have not brought more closure to the questions around her death."
In Chester County, authorities said they could not comment due to the ongoing investigation; however, key evidence has already been unearthed. A private investigator hired by the Greenbergs found proof of a 6.5-centimeter wound to the back of Ellen's head after her heart stopped beating.
In fact, the family has managed to put together an impressive expert witness list, including some of the nation's top forensic pathologists such as Dr. Cyril Wecht, Dr. Henry Lee, and Dr. Wayne Ross who all determined the circumstances "strongly suspicious of homicide" and completely inconsistent with suicide, according to the family's private investigator, Tom Brennan.
"We have evidence – we don’t have garbage," Dr. Greenberg said. "We have evidence that doesn’t substantiate what they said … and we have experts who have all the credentials."
As of press time, the Chester County DA's office remained mum on their investigation. But with Greenberg's petition for Mayor Jim Kenney to review the case gaining over 150,000 signatures and counting, one can only imagine how much the spotlight on Ellen's death will intensify in the coming days.
