This guy is guilty as sin. It is easy to tell on TV interview he he lying. He is gay, his wife found out, he wasn't going to ruin this "perfect life". Seems she had her own little things going on as well.

I hate to say it, but I agree with all the above. Dr. Tipton seems like he is in denial about being a homosexual... and when his wife found his gay porn, she most like confronted him and threatened to leave or expose him... and he exploded with rage. She found out his secret. Bottom line.

This state of Alabama needs some help. They currently just had another capital murder case that is almost textbook of this case. The investigators contaminated the scene and withheld evidence that clears a man and ignored other leads. see the Kim Danner mistrial

Someone deleted the computer files before the computer was seized. Why is this man not been charged with murder? Probably because the expected his fingerprints and DNA all over the house since he lived there.

This guy creeps me out. During his 48 hours interview he was asked about the many people who think he is guilty. His response, "I'm not going to comment about rumors or any other silliness." Then he asked and answers a series of questions - "Could I murder someone? Yes. Could I murder a member of my own family? No. Could I brutally stab and torture my own wife. That's craaaazy."
Anybody who lived through this kind of experience would NEVER use words like "silliness" or "crazy" to describe the details of the brutality that he supposedly discovered. Only someone who is completely shut off to their own humanity could discover a brutally murdered family member and indicate that the accusation of his guilt is crazy or silly. The same person who is that emotionally shut down is the person who could commit that crime.

I've met Dr. Tipton, and I definitely think that he would be the kind of guy do this. Within days of the murder, it was like things were completely back to normal. It would surprise me if he weren't guilty of the crime.

First off, there was not enough evidence to convict Daniel Moore. Period. Secondly, they gave up too early investigating Dr. Tipton. I think they shouldn't have let him go home that night as they did. They may have missed some evidence and he could have disposed of evidence if there was any left. The workers putting in a driveway saw him come home earlier than he said the day his wife was killed. The neighbor saw his wife at the mailbox later than law enforcement said she was killed, which puts him home the time of the murder. And that man did not have one ounce of sorrow in his manner, or voice for the death of his wife. I also agree with comment of "silliness". Most murders this vicious is personal and usually done by someone close to the victim.

Guilty. The Doctor is clearly guilty. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out. This story makes a mockery of the justice system. It is shameful and horrendous. Guilty and everyone with half a brain knows it.

I couldn't agree with you MORE! I honestly had the same exact thoughts each time he said "silly".(one silly, one silliness) I have personal experience with witnessing a traumatic event,(the suicide of my fiance') and even now (after thirteen years) "going back" to that moment in time is dreadful. I not only instantly FEEL a panicky, claustrophic sensation, but have obvious physical changes as well. PTSD is an extremely complex disorder, with telltale signs. Tipton speaks of that day and there is NO emotion, no anxiety, no anger...no NOTHING! Not sure if you have been to his website,( www.karentiptonmurder.com ) but there are also discrepencies in his portrayal of the First Five Days and what was brought out at trial. The guy is pathetic, and I feel so sorry for the two daughters. The truth ALWAYS comes out in the end; I firmly believe he will screw up. One can only remember their lies for so long!

I'm missing something. The guy's DNA is in the house, along with other evidence, he confesses, he was a doper, but people still don't believe he did it? What am I missing?

"What am I missing?"

Several conflicting points with Dr Tipton.
The accused Moore was in the home at least twice prior to the murder. Of course his DNA might be in the home.
Why would Moore delete information off the computer hard drive? No reason for it.
Tipton speculates wife having alarm fixed (which he knew nothing about). Why would Moore be fixing the alarm when he was no longer employed by the alarm company and evidence (letters) showed the alarm company was still involved as the service agent?
Tipton claims DNA evidence of Moore but none from vaginal swab. So Moore sexually assaulted her but left no DNA but 1-2 hairs? Huh?
Why were there over 20 pieces of evidence withheld from the defense by the prosecution?
The bloody shoe print originally withheld from the defense by the prosecution does not match the shoe size of Moore.

The below video link evaluates the time line of the murder.

Tipton is who they need to look at. He is clearly gay and probably killed his wife bcuz she was going to expose his secrets.
