A new development has come to light regarding the suicide of Russell Armstrong:
Insiders confirm to TMZ that Russell's famous wife - Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong - was actually present when his body was found. Moreover, it was Taylor's panicked calls and texts that led to the discovery.
Despite their recent divorce filing, Russell and Taylor were reportedly on decent terms. They were scheduled to meet Monday afternoon. When Russell didn't show, Taylor and a friend went over to the house at which he'd been residing. They met the owner on the property there and, while Taylor stood by, he looked through the bedroom window and saw Russell's body hanging in the bathroom.
A call was subsequently placed to 911 and Russell was declared dead at 8:16 p.m. Taylor stuck around the home for a few hours afterward. She has since released a statement expressing her devastation over the incident.
