    Guess in all that training they forgot to mention to not be so obvious.

    I hate it when they hold the trial without benefit of judge or jury or in this case, even a suspect in custody.

    You have to admit, it appears to be pretty cut and dried; although, you are correct.

    Here's a scenario:

    Make husband write note (under duress), kill or even kidnap husband, steal truck, kill wife. Hope husband gets blamed. Find husband's body in mountains with bullet in head. Case closed. Killer gets away with "perfect" murder.

    Pure speculation but until the case comes to trial and evidence is presented, it is premature to convict.

    I am merely pointing out that not all the facts are known yet. Pretty hard to convict without all the evidence.

    It was pretty much him. They found him and he killed himself.

    I read some random news article where someone predicted he would commit suicide. Interesting that they could predict that.

    Good points about the presumption of innocence/guilt though. As a law professor I was reading once wrote, "the law is littered with open and shut cases that weren't." In this one the suspect's suicide is a guilty plea but the point is still valid.
