          Grief-Stricken Parents Claim Daughter’s Boyfriend Knew She Was Planning Suicide


          September 13, 2017

          Dan and Katie are mourning the death of their daughter, Samantha, who took her own life in October 2016. The grieving parents say Samantha hadn’t been the same person since meeting her boyfriend, Jonathan, who they claim, isolated and controlled her from the start of their relationship.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Life in crisis?

          “He broke her,” says Dan. “He had to have control of her computers in terms of being able to have access and know all the passwords. He insisted that they put their money in joint accounts. He had to know her whereabouts all the time.”

          Katie asserts, “If Jonathan had not treated her the way he treated her, had not belittled her, had said something – she would still be here.”

          She’s claiming Jonathan, knew Samantha was suicidal. “There are a lot of things that don’t add up when it comes to Jonathan and what happened with Samantha that night,” says the grieving stepmother

          Jonathon adamantly denies either isolating or controlling Samantha and says he’s not responsible in any way for her suicide. Why does he claim Katie and Dan are determined to destroy his life?
