Hung Jury in the Phil Spector Murder Trial!

How unfortunate, the jury in the Spector case was unable to reach a verdict. The evidence was overwhelming! Lana Clarkson was a nightclub hostess when Spector met her on Feb 3, 2003. He invited her to join him at his mansion in Alhambra at approx 5 a.m. for some drinks. Clarkson died when a gun went off in her mouth as she sat in a chair in the foyer. The defense claims that it was a self-inflicted wound or suicide. I'm not an expert, but why would someone come to a home at 5 a.m. for " drinks" and then commit suicide. Most people these days have personal problems, but it doesn't justify what happened. Furthermore, prosecutors presented Spector's chauffeur, who said that he heard a "pow" and that Spector then came outside with a gun in his hand and stated: "I think I killed somebody. Also, they called five women from Spector's past who testified that he long ago terrorized them with guns when they tried to leave his presence! In my opinion "Doctor Detroit" was high on blow and decided that Lana was his target! I hope Lana's family will file a Civil suit against Phil and get some kind of resolve. Why did the O.J. trial get more coverage than the Phil Spector case?
