Ellen Greenberg Biography
The parents of a teacher Ellen Greenberg found dead in Philadelphia in 2011 say new information uncovered by a technology expert belies the results of law enforcement agencies who searched online for her to commit suicide.
Ellen Greenberg first grade teacher at Juniata Park Academy
Ellen Greenberg, a first grade teacher at Juniata Park Academy, was found stabbed to death in her Manayunk apartment on January 26, 2011. She left work early that day due to a snowstorm and stayed at her Venice apartment. Lofts she shared with her fiancé, television producer Sam Goldberg.
Authorities discovered that Ellen had died in her kitchen and a knife had driven four inches into her chest. A total of 20 stab wounds were found in Ellen’s body. Ten of the stab wounds were to her neck, one to her neck, another to her abdomen, and eight to her chest.
With no defensive injuries, no forced entry into the apartment, and no evidence of fighting, police said Ellen had committed suicide. A coroner later discovered that Ellen’s death was murder.
Ellen’s father, Joshua Greenberg, told CrimeOnline that at the urgent request of the police, the coroner decided to overturn the results and characterize Ellen’s death as suicide.
Joshua and his wife Sandy think someone else misunderstood his daughter. He sent reservation cards for her upcoming wedding a few days before her death and showed no signs of depression or suicidal thoughts.
Sam Goldberg told investigators that he made his way to the gym and returned home to find that it was locked and that the rotary lock was inside the front door. He would only have left for about 45 minutes before returning to the sixth floor apartment.
Sam said he called Ellen several times and texted Ellen, but when he got no response or help from the apartment manager, he broke the lock and went inside to find her fiancee on her back. her in the kitchen.
After reviewing the security footage, investigators found that Sam Goldberg’s version of events was consistent with the footage. Authorities then turned over Ellen’s computer to the Regional Computer Forensic Laboratory (RCFL). Then the FBI examined the computer.
Based on an investigation into her computer, authorities confirmed once again that suicide was the cause of Ellen’s death. Searches such as “quick suicide” and “painless suicide” were reportedly found on Ellen’s hard drive.
Leigh Egan’s Ellen Greenberg Case File
Joshua Greenberg told CrimeOnline that an attorney the family hired for the case, Joseph Podrazza, revealed through a technology expert that there was no evidence that Ellen was asking specific questions about the suicide.
“NO evidence of hard drive suicide or viable death demonstrates an obsession with either topic,” Podrazza wrote. “Our expert asserts that the ‘search queries’ identified by the Attorney General’s Office were not direct search queries, but ghost searches that are displayed based on analytics, etc.”
Joshua explained that his daughter was taking anti-anxiety medication and searched online for side effects that led to investigations into suicide. Joshua added that his daughter was seeing a therapist at the time because she was overwhelmed at school and from the upcoming marriage, but his therapist noted that Ellen was not suicidal.
“She was looking for medications and weight gain,” Joshua said.
Podrazza said that despite numerous inquiries to the Attorney General’s office, he never received a copy of the forensic computer analysis from law enforcement. Then, in the fall of 2020, he received a copy of the FBI report from the Department of Justice with “a note in the PPD files [indicating no results were obtained after the FBI review.”
Meanwhile, the Greenbergs continue to fight to have their daughter’s case reopened and classified as a murder. In October 2019, they appeared with Dr. Marlon Osbourne, who performed the first autopsy, and filed a civil action against the Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s Office.
The Greenbergs also have forensic experts like the famous Dr. Henry who hires Lee to investigate the case.
