ABC’s ‘Primetime Crime’ will air the mysterious story of slain kindergarten teacher Justine Swartz Abshire on July 30, 2008. Tonight they are featuring the case of Justine Abshire, a 27 year old kindergarten teacher, who had reportedly called her husband to pick her up after her car broke down that night, police now say two independent mechanics found nothing wrong with her 2002 Ford Mustang, which started up at the scene of the accident. Even more significant, however: Justine may not have been hit by a car, according to The Hook.
Twenty months after Justine Swartz Abshire was found dead on a dark rural country road in Orange County, the apparent victim of a hit and run, is getting featured tonight at 10 p.m. on ABC’s Primetime: Crime.
Her parents have always believed their daughter’s death was no accident.
Reportedly, Justine had called her husband to pick her up after her car broke down the night of November 3, 2006. However, now police say two independent mechanics found nothing wrong with her 2002 ford Mustang, which started up at the scene of the accident. Read the entire article at The Hook.
The family of Justine is hoping that the airing on Primetime Crime tonight will help solve the case. They have offered a $50,000 reward but are hoping that Primetime will help crack the case.
I can understand why Justine’s family want to know what happened that fateful night; it is a horrific thing to lose a loved one but not knowing exactly what happened – well there is no closure for the family.
Of course the husband is a prime suspect, of which he complains is keeping the police from finding out what really happened. The thing that struck me as suspicious though is his refusal to taking a polygraph test.
I don’t know if there was foul play involved or an actual hit and run, but I hope the family can find out.
Justine Abshire, seems to have been a beautiful young woman, both inside and out. I hope her family can find some peace and that the show tonight will be a catalyst for answers.
