Okay I learned a major secret about my family today. I'll start off with the facts.
My grandmom was bipolar.
She stopped her meds.
When other people besides her husband saw her, she was already layed down.(but she still had the rope around her neck.)
My grandpop claimed to have waited 2 hours(even though he saw her car) to look for her.
He was happy a few hours later.
He threw a party the next day.
It was a rumor going around the neighborhood that he was cheating.
He started openly dating a woman about 4 months after my grandmom's
3 days before her death, she walked around like a zombie(...the way she got when she took too many calming meds)
2 days before her death, she was happy, but he was mad at her whenever she showed it.
She confronted him with the affair a little while before her death.
The knots on the nuece she was hung from was so tight that she wouldn't
have been able to tie them(she was skiny, weak, and had arthrites)
She was in the middle of a family project before her death.
There were wires sticking out of the wall that would for sure kill you if you
touched them...my grandpop pointed them out as soon as my uncle said that the rope didn't seem right...and then said she probably tried to electricute herself first.
My grandpop called her best friend, and didn't even think of calling 911 or the cop or anything.
My grandpop didn't even care whether or not she had a Catholic funeral(that was one thing she really wanted, since she was a devot Catholic)
And what I gather-
I think that my grandmom confronted my grandpop and he egged her on, and helped her commit "suicide" by telling her that she might as well do it and he was cheating on her anyway. Then, by tying the nuece for her.
What my family gathers-
He electricuted her after she found out about the affair, then made it seem like a hanging.
Sorry. but I just can't believe this. I mean I can, my grandpop is a terrible man...but I didn't know this terrible... My grandmom died before I met her, but this is the story. She never got an autopsy and nobody listend to my uncles or dad because it was in a bad part of Philly and they just got the work done without giving her a second chance.... I had to write this, I don't know how to cope with the fact that my grandpop has possibly gotten away with...murder. Gosh.

I don't usually log on to answer threads but I thought I'd answer yours. It sounds like what's going on right now in your family is difficult and hard, and you should really talk to the police about any suspicions you or your family have regarding your grandmothers death.
I also wanted to say that it's unlikely someone would die from a shock from the wires in a house. I say this as an apprentice electrician who's been shocked by it before. Also if someone were to die from an electric currant they'd be severely burned.
However what you said about the knot in the rope is really suspicious and I would bring up your concerns with the police as soon as you can.
