These are the reasons that Elvina Roloff HAD TO be MURDERED the night of September 7, 2001.
Why did Elvina Roloff HAVE TO be MURDERED late at night around 11:45
- Her sister, Marion Gull
(Kanenwisher) and her
brother-in-law Albert Gull were scheduled to arrive at Elvina's home on
the next day. Marion had experience as a Registered Nurse, and she
watch and control the medication and treatment of Elvina. At the
current day and the previous few days the control was under her adopted
daughter Marie Ann Cheatham.
- Her biological son
(closest living relative) was
scheduled to arrive after two days at Elvina's home. He would review
and change the medical treatment of Elvina. He would get a second
opinion from a cancer research facility on the east coast. He would
"Do Not Resuscitate" notation in her treatment plan. He would move
Elvina to a professional Hospice Care Facility in Vancouver, rather
than unprofessional and inadequate home care. He would discover
financial issues that could result in the loss of hundreds of thousands
of dollars to Marie Ann Cheatham if Elvina did not die before
they could be changed..
- Marie Ann Cheatham refused to let the main
Hospice Care Nurse look at Elvina in the morning to assess her
condition. No Hospice Care Nurse had seen Elvina since the previous
- Marie Ann Cheatham had received telephone
authorization the previous night to administer a form of morphine to
Elvina based only on Marie Ann Cheatham's word that Elvina was in pain.
- There would not be any visitors in her house.
- Marie Ann Cheatham would be alone with her in
the mother-in-law apartment behind the house.
- The night shift nurses would be on duty at the
Hospice Care office 20 miles (40 minute drive) away in Vancouver,
This describes premeditated murder and possibility including
conspiracy if her husband Daniel T. Cheatham was involved actively or
passively by doing nothing to prevent it and/or not reporting relevant
facts to the police.
