THAT IS COMMON. WHEN SOMEONE GOES MISSING, THEY FIRST TURN TO THEIR OTHER HALF. LOOK AT LACI PETERSON. THATS JUST HOW IT GOES.

Unfortunately we have canals instead of ravines and a State full of wackos. If you wind up missing down here, you are likely dead or running from the law.

I am so glad that they found her before it was too late. What a miracle!

They waited 8 days to look at the cell phone record??? That is surely something that could be changed.

It's a miracle she survived. Good luck to her in her recovery....8 days- there's no justification for it!! I hope she recovers fully enough to benefit from the lawsuit $. God only knows the terror both she and her husband went through and how long that 8 days seemed to them both. It's an OUTRAGE.

What happened to innocent until proven guilty?
How about looking for her while there is still a chance that she is alive?????

I was going to make a similar comment at first, but truthfully, the cops really don't have much choice than to play the percentages in a matter like this.
Unfortunately, when a spouse is missing, the chances are pretty good the other spouse had a part in it.
I'm guessing 80-90% of the time. You have to go with the odds and at least rule out people before going forward. It sux, but it's part of the process.

Goes missing.

I can't believe someone would actually open their mouth and say it aloud without checking themselves and thinking "wow...I sound like a total hick".

Lawsuit for what? How is it the pd's fault that she was involved in an accident & they didn't find her? She was an adult & like the article said, they dont have to report or account for their whereabouts. Sure...go ahead & sue...make some attorney richer & in turn, taxes, etc, go up for the rest of us.

Was she run off the road? Was she on the cell phone at that time? Or did she fall asleep at the wheel. Get well soon. People listen up and let your significant other know where you are going and what road you will be taking.

It's a translation from an Alaskan native phrase. When someone disappears up there, they used the term. It is common in English usage around there, as well.
