Phil Spector's SoCal 'Castle' Full of Memories Both Tragic and Triumphant

"Honestly? It sucked. It was awful and the people are really mean and nasty and negative. They didn't look for anything suicidal, anything accidental, anything in Lana Clarkson's past that would have pointed to her putting a gun in her own mouth and shooting herself," Rachelle said.

She demonstrated for ABC News what she thought happened on that fateful February 2003 night.

Standing by Her Man, Rachelle Spector Says Gun Probably 'Went Off Accidentally'

She asked ABC News correspondent Chris Connelly to participate in a re-enactment.

After finding out Connelly is 5 feet 11 inches, she asked, "Now are you gonna let somebody walk up to you, just like this, 'cause you're about Lana Clarkson's size, and put a gun all the way in your mouth and not do anything? You're just gonna sit there like that?" Rachelle said.

"What I think happened is she was sitting in the chair and she was holding the gun," she said. "She put the gun in her mouth. She was maybe doing something sexually oriented with it. I don't know. But it went off accidently and unfortunately it was a permanent circumstance that you couldn't say whoops, I shouldn't have done that."

When asked where Phil was when all this was going on, Rachelle says she doesn't know.

Phil Spector has never told his wife what happened that night, and she's never asked him to.

Rachelle says she doesn't know when her husband will tell his side of the story. When asked if she wants him to, she admits, "at some point I think that would be a good idea."

Rachelle still hopes that her husband will come back to his castle, where the lady of the house is now taking care of business.

These two also have some unfinished business. Remember Rachelle's singing career? Before his incarceration, Spector once again donned his producer's cap and cut three new songs with Rachelle on vocals.

"So I am just really excited to release these songs because I want people to see that my husband is just so way beyond his years," Rachelle said. "Like I said, he said it's all about timing."
