2 years ago on March 26, 2010 - a former Georgia State Senator, Nancy Schaefer - was found murdered in her home outside Atlanta GA along side her husband. It was a shocking development. Their were immediate speculation her death had something to do with her often outspoken criticism of Family Law and the DCFS (Department of Children and Family Services) as she had apparently told some colleagues she planned "to release some important information".
After an autopsy and investigation - it was called a murder-suicide. That still did not sit well with many. There has been countless speculation that the Schaefer's were murdered for her involvement in exposing CPS (Child Protective Services). Of course it has a "conspiracy theory" feel to it - but unless some legitimate verification is done it will remain a mystery. I continue to morn the fact that a very valuable ally and defender of families - not to mention a wonderful person - is gone.
