What is the latest on Denise? Is she charged with the crime?

This was just called to my attention earlier this evening by my son. Apparently, Channel 5 in Chicago is running something about this gruesome incident on Thursday night, 4/23/09. To those of us who worked at Forest with the Squires early in our careers, this whole thing seems to be playing out like some nightmarish parody of how the Hospital used to be, and the role it played in our lives. THAT PLACE played a very influential role in our lives, and to witness firsthand the complete and utter unraveling of the whole thing is absolutely horrifying. My God, I met so many good, bright, young people there who had such a lasting effect on me...It was so much like living in a small town, with everyone knowing everyone else's business all the time...gossip, rumours, and some pretty sick, twisted crap that happened on a near daily basis. I loved/hated that place, and it continues to have a profound influence on my life to this day, some 15 years or so afterward. ARI SQUIRE MURDERED SOMEONE?? Who on earth would have ever predicted such a thing back then? Unreal.

What about Ari's father MORRIS? Anybody know his story?
If you look up Morris B (Bear) Squire, you'll find him in Santa Barbara California as an eccentric, wealthy artist/philantropist. Knew him in the late 70's while still in the far northwest suburbs.

I want to give my deepest condolences to Justin's family and friends. He virtually saved my friend's life. Justin will forever be remembered as an angel! I sincerely hope that everyone who was affected by this can move forward with their lives. I hope Ari's wife pays for the crime! There is no way she knew nothing of what her husband was planning. Who in their right mind stays in their house when it is on fire. Come on, it was a cover up. Karma always gets you in the end.

Annie,
Being part of the family I'm sure you are well aware of everything that Morris and Ari are capable of. You can try the whole 'innocent till proven guilty' thing for as long as you wish but the bottom line is this will go down as one of the dumbest murders in a long time. If someone is trying to disappear, why is his wife sending emails and texts? Annie, you can try and defend our family for as long as you want but you know our history. Instead of trying to find the good in them, why not not concentrate your efforts on the victims?

Although this thread is old, it's really odd to recall the Squire Family, Denise Franks and Forest Hospital. That family always gave me the creeps.

For a wife to be in the house not knowing her husband had someone there while his car was in her drive way is un think able. She did not know her husband? bought hair die to look like Justin. The fed were already on hime for the medicare fraud and his time was short to pay that back. Ari wife new about it when she worked in wheeling because she was there after work. Ari's ploy was to get another guy from home depot in Lake Zurich that was a dead match but the guy thought about it and he ended up with plan 2 Justine Newman.Ari told Justine that he had work in The St louis area and both of those guys 1) he intend to use and the other he killed could make a boat load of money. No matter how you look at it the 3 Million dollars the family of Newman got is not even close to replacing a young man with a big heart.

The idea of sending e-mails to a dead guy might sound a little strange no to defend anyone anybody could steal you e-mail and can even clone your phone. I think who ever was facing time for not paying the goverment back for the medicare fraud money is also part of this.

Guilty, no doubt in my mind. Case was turned over to the FBI? Why hasn't a criminal charge been brought against her with the overwhelming evidence of her involvement? The emails with her dead husband alone make her guilty of something!Guessing there must have been some kind of mistake or error in the initial investigation. That's the only thing I can think of to explain why she's not in prison.

Since the murder, I've seen Denise in her driveway maybe 10 times. She must get fresh air in her (fairly recently installed) privacy fenced backyard.

The garage door goes up, her car goes in/out, the garage door goes down. She's upgraded her BMW to a larger luxury car. Shades are always closed. I think about Justin and the Newman family every time I pull into the neighborhood and pass her hideous garage.

I saw the Dateline report about this incident on the Oprah Network last night. Has anything new happened since Justin's family received the $6 million judgement, i.e., has Denise been found to have been involved in the plot? Thanks!

As far as I can tell there aren't any new developments in the investigation or prosecution of Denise. Does anyone have any other news? Why are the Feds not bringing in any other details on this? Granted Denise is now a widow but the fact that she's still unprosecuted seems bizarre to me. Is she also outside the previous fraud scandals that Squire was involved in? Is her estate liable? Is she still...uhh...wealthy?

I know Denise very well. She is one of the best people I have ever known. I hope you never have the experience of being tried and convicted by the media for something you didn't do. It's very hard to crawl out from under that. There's a reason she was never charged in this. Despite the best efforts of all the involved law enforcement officials she wasn't charged. Why? I would say she is innocent of the charges but there are none. How about you give her her life back? Is that possible?

I truly believe Eitan Squire should have been locked up after this incident he had a health care bussiness with Ari and his wife. I loaned 215,000 thousand dollars to eitan squire for this health care conpany in 2003 and never got a dime back. Now eitan squire is liveing in florida operating shomer scurity bizz and thinks he got away. His brother that owns bike n roll is another peace of work his grandfather morris bear squire gave josh money to get bike n roll started that was money that was used from dubble billing medicare from forest hospital that has been closed for some time. Saul Squire Eitans father he flys back in forth to israel. The family is disgrace to the jewish community and very bad to do business with. Im yet to see my money but i was taken for a extensive amount of money and all this shit came about. im so pissed.

How about your pal Denise, gives back the life of the young man that she and her husband incenerated in her garage? She didn't know that her husband had a 5 million dollar insurance policy? She didn't know that her husband had 2 tattoos (instead she said one tattoo like Justin had)? She didn't know she was communicating with a dead man? Why was she talking about ashes, and a body not released, and wanting A NEW LIFE? Hey I get it, she was your friend and you feel stupid that you didn't know she was a killer. But face it: SHE'S EVIL. And your sympathies should be with JUSTIN'S FAMILY. ALONE! Where's your decency? I can't believe your friend Denise is not rotting in a prison cell. Please God, bring justice to Justin's family!
