Wow, one of the guys I work with went home for lunch yesterday and found his wife murdered.

I told my wife that if somehow she died under auspicious terms like that, her parents would immediately think I killed her. They're like that...

You're going to have to plan it with a good aliby then!

Just make sure not to raise her life insurance coverage before you do it; that's a big give away to the cops!

"There is . . . no evidence to indicate that anyone in the community should be in fear," Poteet said. "This is an isolated incident."
I love that crap. If it wasn't the hubby that did it (and I really doubt he did, just because of the "went home for lunch" part... The timing would be way too tight..) then whoever did it may just be randomly knocking on doors!

My question is that if the Police tell everyone it's an "isolated incident", then can the family of the next victim sue the cops? :Q

I think you mean "suspicious terms", but even that seems a bit wrong. Maybe "violent" would be a better word.

That has got to be the worst thing ever to come home to.

My sympathies go out to him and his infant daughter.

maybe he will pull a max payne and pwn everyone associated with the murder and everyone in his way of finding out
 

Sheesh, God help the person that ever thought about doing that to my family....
I have nothing else, I would devote my life to punishing that SOB.

Nope. The police arent legally responsible for your protection. The name of the USSC case that decided this has momentarily escaped me, but I'll think of it... or Amused will post in this thread, one of the two

Seems very interesting that the Police and the reporters have already deemed this an "isolated incident" as noted above....almost as if they are just going to assume it was the husband, however I must agree that the circumstances seem a little odd (he happened to find her, there was no sign of struggle or forceful entry...etc)....

I agree, if something like this happened to me with my fiancee I know her parents would suspect me...just seems fisy or at least with the info they are providing....

With re. house prices here in Boston you can get a nice outhouse for about 300K...it is stupid expensive

That is the definite bias you get from the newspaper article. Especially how they kept on emphasizing she was pregnant. In this country you are innocent until proven guilty though. But this is not a thread for accusations.
No indication of any break end, husband went home to check on wife. I would imagine she is insured as well...I definitely would not want to be in the husbands shoes whether he did it or not.

Yeah...definitely :( to hear about her murder but, hmm...offering up more possibility/rumor...an affair going on and he caught her?

Dunno...all just pure conjecture until the investigation is complete. Sure hope your co-worker has a good group of friends/family to get him through this, though.

Well, i'm not sure if it was the husband at all. I don't think the part of not having to use force to get inside would have any bearing at all. SImply because, how many of us when we hear someone knock on our door we run to open it? Possibly it was someone they knew, or even if they didn't it wouldn't leave any evidence if a man just pushed the door open and walked in. Then just stabbed her and walked out.

I don't really want to accuse the husband, not saying its definitely not him, but I hope they got some sort of evidence of from the time he left his work, to the time of her death (or vice versa). They should have been able to give a rough estimate of how long she was dead prior to the police arriving. If he killed her, it will be noticeable.

I was just about to say that. Especially if there's no sign of entry or anything stolen. It's a terrible thing though :(

Who gives a sh|t how much the home is worth in cali? This thread isnt about cali.

Contrary to popular opinion, 99% of the countries population doesnt care what happens in california or even if the entire state dropped off the continent.

Get over yourself already.

After reading that I hope your co-worker has a good alibi. Like to the minute Husbands are carefully scrutinized after murders such as this one. Regardless 35 is to young to die. I feel the most sorry for the child. They will never know their mother:(
