Lots of evidence, few answers at Shue trial

But little new light fell on the big mystery that underpins the proceedings — whether Air Force Col. Philip Shue killed himself, was murdered or died accidentally April 16, 2003.
Dozens of witnesses have yet to be called, and 2,100 exhibits are numbered for the trial that's drawn interest from national television news teams but few local spectators.
Monica Escobar, a USAA staffer who advised Shue with guidance from a superior, testified she didn't know the firm could cancel a policy if it detected fraud, nor had she been trained to refer concerns like Shue's to the firm's special investigations unit.
“We'll probably never know because there's too many questions that are unanswered,” the Boerne man said.
