Excerpt, pages 52-53 of Failure of the Public Trust,

That evening, Web Hubbell was beeped while having dinner at the Lebanese Taverna restaurant in Washington with his wife, his children, White House intern Janet Schaufele, and Marsha Scott. Hubbell, his wife, and Marsha Scott proceeded to the Anthony's nearby home to notify Mr. Foster's two sisters, brother-in-law and niece of the death.[84]  Officially, Sheila, Sharon, and Web then went to the Foster residence.  Reportedly they arrived at the same time as Park Police investigators Cheryl Braun and John Rolla had, to notify the family. The whereabouts of Sheila's husband Beryl and the Foster sons that evening is unclear.   The two Police Investigators spent 70 minutes in the Foster home where a dozen or so close friends and relatives gathered.  According to Webster Hubbell, "everyone at the Foster residence that evening was trying to make logic out of the death, trying to pinpoint some event, but that they could not do so..."[85] Investigator Rolla testified about his interview of some of those there that night.

Q. Did anyone at the notification mention depression or anti-depressant medication that Foster might have been taking?

A. I mentioned depression, did you see this coming, were there any signs, has he been taking any medication?  No.  All negative answers.[86]

Compare A. Devroy & M. Isikoff, Handling of Foster Case is Defended, Wash. Post, July 30, 1993: Police who arrived at Foster's house the night of the death were turned away after being told Lisa Foster and family members were too distraught to talk. Investigators were not allowed to interview her until yesterday. "That was a matter between her lawyers and the police," [David] Gergen said, and the White House "had no role in it."
