          Man Claims Deceased Girlfriend’s Parents Tried To Get Him Kicked Out Of Law School


          September 13, 2017

          Jonathon says Katie and Dan, the parents of his deceased girlfriend, Samantha, blame him for her suicide. He says they “wrote a, a very lengthy letter to the dean of my law school explaining that I was this terrible, awful person, that I shouldn’t be a part of the legal profession – I should be removed from school.”

          Jonathon says the letter was uncalled for and an “assault” on him as a person.

          “Blaming me for Samantha’s decision, Katie and Dan think pursuing a vendetta against me is what’s going to give them the closure they need,” says Jonathon.

          Dan says while he knows Jonathon isn’t physically responsible for his daughter’s death, he believes it was Jonathon’s behaviors towards Samantha that contributed to her suicide. He and Katie are claiming Jonathon was controlling, and was isolating Samantha from her family; all of which Jonathon adamantly denies.

          What do Katie and Dan say when Jonathon claims he fulfilled his “duty” to a suicidal Samantha by getting her into counseling?
