In the latest episode of the "Hidden Killers" podcast with Tony Brueski, the perplexing case of Ellen Greenberg once again takes the spotlight. The topic raises a fundamental question: What does it take to find justice when authorities insist on labeling a gruesome crime as suicide? Despite Ellen being stabbed 20 times, with half of those wounds in her back and head, there has been no homicide investigation. Instead, evidence crucial to solving the mystery lies untouched in a Philadelphia evidence locker, including an unexamined weapon and digital devices.
Enter Neama Rahmani, a former federal prosecutor, who joins the discussion to unravel the complexities of this disturbing case. The focal point of the conversation revolves around a civil case brought against the Philadelphia Police Department for their perceived lack of action in what many suspect to be a cover-up. However, a pertinent question arises: Can the findings from this civil case potentially lead to a legitimate criminal investigation?
Tony Brueski wonders whether the evidence unearthed during the civil trial, which is currently in the discovery phase, might provide the much-needed breakthrough. Could it reveal fingerprints or other crucial details that have languished unexamined for far too long? Rahmani, with his legal expertise, believes otherwise. He highlights a fundamental challenge – law enforcement, and prosecutors generally have immunity in these types of cases, and members of the public can't compel them to act.
This fact underscores a broader public policy issue. While it may be perceived as unfair, it remains challenging to force authorities to reopen cases or launch investigations in the absence of an apparent duty to act. The justice system, as Rahmani explains, is designed in a way that grants considerable discretion to prosecutors and law enforcement agencies. This discretion can only be influenced by voting a prosecutor out of office, as seen in cases like Bill Cosby's, where a new prosecutor brought fresh perspective to long-standing matters.
Despite the frustration surrounding this case, the legal framework remains firmly rooted in prosecutorial discretion. Civil lawsuits may not prove effective in pushing authorities to act, as Rahmani argues. The hope for change lies in the hands of voters, who have the power to elect prosecutors who share their commitment to pursuing justice.
Moreover, the conversation touches on the misuse of the term "active investigation" by law enforcement agencies. The enigma of Ellen Greenberg's death continues to perplex, leaving many with the haunting question: Will the evidence ever see the light of day, potentially leading to answers and justice? The challenges ahead are substantial, but the determination of Ellen's parents remains unbroken. As they continue their fight for truth and accountability, the hope for change in how cases like this are handled endures, challenging the status quo of prosecutorial discretion and reminding us that justice should be relentless in its pursuit.
