Producer Jill Blackstone Killed Her Sister (Maybe)

Mar 19, 2015 - 0 Comments

Police can’t tell if Jill Blackstone killed her sister or not, which is why they arrested the famous TV producer and dropped the charges against her, all within the same day. 

The confusion apparently arose over the weekend when Blackstone’s younger sibling, Wendy, was found dead in their garage of carbon monoxide poisoning, together with three pets.

The two share a house in San Fernando Valley, California, in a neighborhood not used to crime and sirens.

Wendy Blackstone’s death may very well have been a suicide, which is what the older Blackstone contends, but for some reason detectives thought the scene and farewell note looked … well … kind of questionable.

So they booked the surviving Blackstone on suspicion of murder and took her into police custody.

Hours  later, they changed their minds and let the 52-year-old woman go home again.

It’s possible, though, that the producer of such popular television series as Jerry Springer and Rosie may soon see the inside of a jail cell once more, since the inquiry into her 49-year-old deaf sister’s unsettling demise is still open.

In the meantime, whether or not Jill Blackstone killed her sister, the TV producer’s definitely qualified now to be a guest on any of her own talk shows.
