BRADENTON HERALD, BRADENTON BEACH August 17th, 2012 — The first thing Tampa mother Kelly Osborn told city commissioners Thursday after she had waved protest signs for more than an hour in 96-degree heat in front of Bradenton Beach City Hall was that she was angry.She is angry that, despite her efforts for the past three years, the case of her 22-year-old daughter’s death remains closed by the Bradenton Beach Police Department as a “death by suicide.”
Osborn made it clear she wants more than the special FDLE panel scheduled to look at the evidence. She wants the Federal Bureau of Investigation or a similarly independent agency to take the case over.She told commissioners that she is angry that Bradenton Beach Police Chief Sam J. Speciale didn’t call her on Aug. 7 when he received a letter from the FBI telling him that there would have to be a federal connection in order for that agency to research or investigate Morris’ death. As Osborn, Tony and Cheryl Telese of Tampa and private detective Bill Warner of Sarasota held signs saying “Justice 4 Sheena” in front of city hall prior to the commission meeting, Speciale was in his office a few streets away.
Bill Warner said there was no sand in the shower where Morris was found, convincing him and Osborn that the crime scene was staged.”Were they there?” Speciale said. “They are going by the crime scene pictures. Sheena could have had sand on the top of her feet. She was walking around that room so it would not be unusual not to have sand in the shower.”
THERE WAS ALSO NO SAND ON THE BATHROOM FLOOR LEADING UP TO THE SHOWER NOR ANY FINGERPRINTS, LOOKS LIKE MR WOLF, ‘THE CLEANER’ FROM PULP FICTION SHOWED UP TO SANITIZE THE CRIME SCENE OR SHEENA MORRIS JUST FLEW INTO THE SHOWER STALL, GET REAL
The Bradenton Beach Police Chief Sam Speciale claims in the Islander Newspaper that he would reopen the supposed ‘suicide’ of Sheena Morris if any credible evidence was presented. The mom, Kelly Osborn, has piles of credible evidence, see below;

The chief medical examiner for the Florida district changed the 26-year-old’s cause of death from suicide to undetermined, as the theory that her death may have been staged destabilized his original verdict. The cold case team, which was not reopening but ‘reviewing’ the suicide according to police, will make its findings in around two months.
SARASOTA HERALD TRIBUNE August 17th, 2012: Sheena Morris, 22, was found hanging in a shower stall of a Bradenton Beach hotel on New Year’s Day 2009. Osborn and some of the country’s best forensic experts say Detective Diaz bungled the investigation and mistakenly classified a murder as suicide. The Manatee County Medical Examiner later changed Morris’ autopsy report from “suicide” to “undetermined.” Experts say the scene was scrubbed, and that evidence shows that Sheena’s body was carried into the shower and placed there to appear as a hanging.
