The Susan Murphy Milano Show, “Time’s Up!” Thursdays at 2pm ET Listen LIVE at: Here Women Talk The mother of murdered Sheena Morris, Kelly Osborn, will join us for the hour and update listeners on what’s happening in her pursuit of truth and justice for her daughter. On January 1st, 2009, Sheena Morris was murdered in her hotel room, yet authorities quickly labeled it a suicide.  She was hanging by her neck in the shower by one of her Yorkies’ dog leash.  The crime scene was questionable as were the circumstances surrounding her ‘sudden’ suicide.
