A Woman is Found Dead in a Car, Was it Murder?
On April 25, 2019 the body of 24 year old Amber Lazenby was found on private property in the city of Muskegon Heights, Michigan. Her body was found in the rear of a disabled vehicle, drug paraphernalia was reported near the vehicle. Lazenby had an addiction to drugs and would engage in prostitution.
In 24 years, Lazenby had a tough life. Her mother left her and her younger sister when they were just young children. They were raised by their father and her aunt. Family members also believe that she may have been sexually abused by someone related to her. These factors may have vastly contributed to her drug addiction.
There are questions as to how she died. An autopsy could not determine a cause of death. There was trauma on her body but questions remain if they occurred after she had died. It is possible that she could have died from a drug overdose, however, there were no signs of opioids in her system. However cocaine and marijuana were present.
However, the autopsy revealed a fractured cervical (neck) bone among other unusual findings including a large gash on her head.
Law Enforcement is looking at the case but family members express concern about their calls not being returned. Her Aunt and cousins want answers and if it’s a homicide…. They want justice.
Man’s Shooting Death Raises Serious Questions….
Daniel Ray Underwood, 33, died of a shotgun wound to the head on September 4, 2008, while engaged in an altercation with his girlfriend Rebecca in his home in Sulphur Springs, Texas. Earlier that evening, Daniel, Rebecca, and a couple of friends, Robin and Maria, had been at a bar together. Maria had accompanied the couple back to Daniel’s house, where Rebecca was living. According to Maria, once there, Daniel and Rebecca got into a heated argument, and he was confronting and accusing Rebecca of taking a large sum of his cash that he had discovered missing. The 911 call began with Rebecca stating, “My fiancée just shot himself in the head on accident!”
The crime scene was processed very quickly, and evidence was not collected from the house, including Rebecca’s bloody clothes.
As the family and friends of Daniel arrived on the scene, and at the hospital, Rebecca continually referred to Detective Fox, as “her good friend, Bo”, as she would smile and make quotation marks in the air to emphasize her statement.
Upon entering the interrogation room, and prior to any questioning, Rebecca immediately asked if she could have Daniel’s wallet and credit cards (which were in Daniel’s name only).
As questioning begins, Rebecca attempts to portray an idyllic relationship; one with no arguments or financial issues, yet, she states there was a large amount of Daniel’s cash missing (which she says she likes to keep count of) – Daniel had recently left his job to pursue one with a better schedule for him to be able to spend more time with his children, and had cashed out his 401K which was around 25,000. In less than a month’s time, there was no money left.
During the interview, she states to the detective that she has given him tips on other cases, and he acknowledges that he has talked to her before about cases.
Even before Daniel took his last breath, Rebecca considered everything he owned to be hers. She called many people while she waited at the crime scene and claimed to be his beneficiary—all the while Daniel was still lying in the hall floor dying from his gunshot wound.
Rebecca rushed backed to Daniel’s house with her friends, and began gathering up everything she could steal of his personal belongings to sale for cash, including his favorite pool cues, jewelry, tools, laptop, phone and more. Rebecca then deleted information from his laptop and cell phone. Police did not question the conflicting versions of Rebecca’s story, although she continually contradicted herself. Rebecca agreed to take a polygraph test about the facts of that evening but backed out after consulting with her attorney.
Daniel’s death was immediately ruled a suicide, long before any forensic testing or even prior to questions being asked of the people that were there at the time. The crime scene was processed very quickly without using the proper protocols. Evidence was not collected from the scene, including Rebecca’s bloody clothes.
Rebecca had a recoil bruise from the butt of the gun on her leg/thigh area. After obtaining all of the case files, along with the autopsy report, photos and lab results showing GSR on the person of interest, and zero amounts on Daniel’s right hand that allegedly had a hold of the gun when it fired, we believe his death was a cold blooded murder.
Eyewitness have come forward claiming Rebecca gave a confession to shooting Daniel. The Underwood Family would like Authorities to look at this case again and rule the manner of death as a homicide.

High School Student Vanishes on Spring Break Found Days Later Dead
Spring Break is a rite of passage for college students and high school students. For many of these students, Fort Lauderdale in Florida has been a popular destination for decades. For one teenager from Trumbull, Connecticut, she went down with six friends from St. Joseph’s High School and never came back alive.
It was April 18th, 1986 when 18 year old Susan Jacques flew to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to go on a ten day vacation. According to sources, she was last seen alive at about 3:30 a.m. on April 26 by friends at the Mark 2100 Motor Hotel at 2100 North Atlantic Boulevard., Fort Lauderdale. She had told friends that she was going out for a walk alone. An unknown woman told Jacques friends that she had seen Jacques talking to a blond haired man who asked her (Jacques) “if she was wearing a one or two piece bathing suit”. This alleged sighting occurred at 4am at a nearby Howard Johnson’s Motel.
Three days later on April 29th, the blond haired Jacques’ body was found severely decomposed in a canal north of Atlantic Avenue, around a mile east of Florida’s Turnpike, which was west of Delray Beach. She was found wearing a mini-skirt, a tank-top and a gold ring. There were no signs of physical trauma and she was identified through dental records. No cause of death was ever determined but the medical examiner at the time stated that is was likely a homicide. The death is being investigated as murder case due to the fact that her body was found in a remote area in western Palm Beach County which was 35 miles from downtown Fort Lauderdale.
