The Parking Lot Murder Investigation

Murder Charges Dismissed

Attorney Mike Stone represented an elderly gentleman who had accelerated his car in a motel parking lot striking his wife and causing her death. The State’s key witness told police that she heard the couple arguing as they exited the lobby and then watched as the defendant purposely ran over his wife in the parking lot.

Gradoni Investigates The Witnesses

Our investigation determined that none of the hotel employees witnessed any such argument in the lobby. Our Houston private investigators further determined that the witness was too far from the hotel lobby to hear any such argument. Additional witnesses interviewed, who were much closer to the incident, believed it was a horrific accident. The Montgomery County District Attorney’s office dismissed the charges when all this information was made available.
