Justice for Ellen Rae Greenberg

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!


On January 26, 2011, 27-year old Ellen Rae Greenberg was murdered.

Authorities ruled her death a homicide, suspicious, but later concluded it was a suicide.


On March 15th, after 8 years of independent investigation, an article on Philly.com provided additional insight and and lingering questions surrounding her case. 

The forensic information doesn't add up.

“I don’t understand how they wrote this off as a suicide.” - Cyril H. Wecht, forensic pathologist


We are the family and friends of Ellen, who want to see justice served and her case re-opened and re-investigated as a homicide.


Ellen was a shining light loved by her family, friends, and students. She was a first grade teacher at Juaniata Park Academy.


Ellen was “found with fatal stab wounds to her chest at 6:30 p.m. … inside her Venice Lofts apartment on Flat Rock Road, just off of Main Street. The apartment building had 24-hour security and a tenant key card system, making it nearly impossible for an intruder to enter.


Her death is still being treated by Philadelphia police as “suspicious.” On Saturday, police backed away from earlier statements that Greenberg’s death was a “homicide.”” - Whyy, January 31, 2011


“It is uncommon that homicide detectives and the Medical Examiner's Office have conflicting theories on the manner of death, but police spokesman Lt. Ray Evers told The Philadelphia Daily News that the investigation has uncovered new facts, though he declined to disclose any further information.


At this time, detectives have listed Greenberg's death as "suspicious," and are leaning their probe in a non-criminal direction, according to CBS affiliate KYW.” - CBS News, January 31, 2011.

Please sign the petition below to urge the courts to reopen Ellen’s case and get justice for our beautiful daughter, friend, niece, and cousin.
