My neighbor disappeared. His wife reported he was missing. “He’s, 6 foot 4, dark eyes, wavy hair, very fit, soft-spoken, and is good to the children.” The cop said, I know him. He’s 5 foot 4, chubby, bald, has a big mouth, and is mean to your children.” She said, “Yes, but who wants HIM back?”
Watching most of the real life crime shows on TV, I’m always amazed when a spouse takes a long time to report them missing. I think that puts a huge target on their back. Plus some don’t even help out with the search! I know!
I know there are sadly far too many cold cases but today there is incredible DNA and cell phone data that can nail a murderer in a very short period of time. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great that these people get caught. Spouses killing spouses is just nuts! If you discover one day that you hate your spouse, one word – divorce.
Sure, divorce is nasty business. Very stressful. But more stressful than going through a murder trial and spending the rest of your life in prison? And what about the people left behind? The children and family members on both sides? Horrible.
If I ever think that Heather is planning something sinister, I would begin sending flowers and doing the laundry. That should put an end to it.
