Michael 'Biker' Sherlock: forensic experts say the longboard did not kill himself | Photo: Dregs Skateboards

Michael "Biker" Sherlock was an American professional downhill skateboarder and street luger.

He was one of the most successful participants in those sports, winning multiple medals at the X Games and Gravity Games. He also founded Dregs Skateboards.

"Biker" died on December 2, 2015.

Originally, it was believed that he committed suicide due to depression through chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE).

Frustrated by the huge amount of legal wrangling and deception, Amy Sherlock contacted Scott Roder of "The Evidence Room" to create a video showcasing what actually happened that fateful night.

Expert Says "Biker" Was Murdered

Roder is a forensic crime investigator who has examined over 2,000 cases in his career.

Roder believes with 100 percent certainty that "Biker" Sherlock's death was a homicide, not a suicide.

His video helped to free Paralympian Oscar Pistorius from prison.

1. Gunshot Wound Trajectory

Analysis of the gunshot wound trajectory and the type of bullet used suggests inconsistencies with a self-inflicted wound.

The trajectory and bullet type indicate the wound was not self-inflicted.

2. Gun Position Post-Incident

The position of the gun found at the scene is inconsistent with a self-inflicted gunshot scenario.

The gun's position suggests it was placed there and does not support a suicide theory.

3. Blood Pattern Analysis

Examination of blood patterns at the scene suggests injuries from an assault rather than a suicide.

4. Physical Condition of "Biker" Sherlock

"Biker" Sherlock's physical condition and injuries indicate a struggle or fight prior to his death.

It appears he was pistol-whipped, and there is a wound on his forehead.

5. San Diego Police Department's Investigation

The investigation by the police department is seen as lacking thoroughness.

The police did not test for gun residue. They could not find the bullet casing.

Connections to the Cannabis Industry

Roder is confident in his findings and is willing to testify in court to the scientific certainty of homicide.

Amy Sherlock believes she has been deceived and manipulated by the legal system and Biker's former business associates.

There is evidence of forged signatures and fraudulent actions in relation to Biker's business and assets. 

In 2022, Amy hired a private investigator, Trent James, to examine the case. His Armorous report can be found at justice4amy.org.

The San Diego Police Department (SDPD) refused to investigate even when they had the Armorous report and admitted there was a great deal of motivation behind the Biker's death.

The cannabis industry and its associated business dealings played a significant role in Biker's life and death.

Amy has faced legal challenges, including a strategic lawsuit against public participation (SLAPP), while trying to uncover the truth about her husband's death and the alleged corruption.

She has been let down by the justice system and law enforcement agencies in her quest for truth and justice.

"Biker" Sherlock's legacy should be one of resilience, determination, and the pursuit of justice.

I am a 63-year-old businessman and engineer who got involved in a complex case surrounding the death of Michael "Biker" Sherlock and potential cannabis industry corruption.

I originally contacted Amy when I began to suspect foul play in his death.

I believe that political and legal corruption in San Diego's cannabis licensing process is linked to Biker's death, involving high net worth individuals.

I have evidence of fraudulent activities and connections between various individuals in the cannabis industry.

I am working to expose the corruption through legal means, including grand jury complaints and collaboration with the FBI and the District Attorney (DA).
