Chloe’s boyfriend, Malcolm, was 21 when he fell over the staircase railing of a three-story apartment building while intoxicated. The young’s man injuries left him in a coma before he eventually died two-and-a-half weeks after his fall.
Chloe admits she was yelling at her boyfriend in the moments before his fall, but maintains she was not responsible for his death. Malcolm’s mother, Stephanie, doesn’t believe Chloe’s story and has asked her to take a polygraph exam.
But why has Chloe – who was the only witness to the fall but was never considered a suspect by police in the wake of Malcolm’s death – refused to take a polygraph?
“I have extreme anxiety, and it was a fear of mine that I would maybe fail,” Chloe says on Wednesday’s Dr. Phil. “I’m open to doing one, it’s more so that my attorney, /my grandfather has advised me not to. I would think that he would know what’s best … I don’t know if I will ever take one.”
