Is this woman in the foto holding a baby? What has happened to it? Has this deviant, if indeed he is one, ever going to be allowed near the child? I have the distinct feeling that she had achieved some level of success &/or enjoyed her job & his macho bad jealous self couldn't tolerate a woman w/a sense of pride in herself & a future, most likely w/o him.? The Better and worse sure got worse didn't it?

one could conceive that a man might error in a fit of rage. But who in there right mind could part out the body of anyone?

N mention of a child for the couple. You'd think that an article would have something about it.

How do people do things like that?

What really gets me is the fact that he was on the news playing the role of poor bereft husband. He made it look like his wife was prone to getting upset and taking off for days at a time....the reason he didn't report her missing right away.

So many people came forward espousing what a great husband and father he is...They were wrong, so so wrong.

And now the children are left with no Mother, no Father and the eventual knowledge of what took them away.

I can't begin to fathom how anyone could do something like that to another human being--especially the person who is supposed to be closest to them. I can't fathom the weeks of freedom he has had with people supporting and comforting him for his loss--and all along he knew exactly what happened to his wife and where her body was. While her family and children suffered not knowing her fate.

He's a non-human. He doesn't deserve to be acknowledged as human.

Regarding the child factor, they had two children, ages 4 and 6. I hope they grow up mentally stable and don't let what their father did/illegedly did affect their ability to live a good quality life.

Why have our men become so violent and so sociopathic---Too many wives are found dead by their husbands in this country...It's an epidemic!
When they are interviewed as potential suspects--they react---
so calmly and detached by saying-------
"oh, of course the husband is the first to be suspect until they find the REAL killer!"
I am so outraged by our judical system not having the power to put these guys in jail before they murder their wives!
These are the role models for our children?

What I question is the unexpected leaviing of the AuPar. Is she envolved? If she was that close to the family, why would you up and leave when the mother is missing???? Lets talk more to the nanny!!

i'm thinking she probably knew after the fact... figured she didn't wanna get involved, or possibly was threatened if she got involved, and got the hell outta there... and yes, i agree... we need to hear more from her...

I believe that they said the au par was removed from the home by the agency she was assigned by following the 'disappearance'.

She has only been quoted as saying that she could not believe that the mother would never have left her children, but she also stated that they couple seemed stable and happy...

UUUmmm, excuse me--but it not JUST men who are doing such heinous things... How many women have been accused, tried and convicted of killing not only their husbands, but their own children? How many children are attacking and killing other children.

It's not one particular gender, it's society as a whole that is becoming patently evil...

What I can't understand is why he had to dismember her.(most likely in front of his children - since Daniel Spitz (medical examiner) reported that if there were others in the home at the time they must have known an altercation was taking place. I once had a teacher who chopped off the head of his estranged wife in front of their child because she wanted a divorce. Maybe thats it - she asked for a divorce What gets into these fathers? Dont they think about their children? Apparently not. If he wanted her dead why did he have to dismember her wasnt choking her to death enough? Also I think they should check into this "friend" who loaned him the runaway truck. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr

I cannot understand why he had to dismember her body most likely in front of their children according to what Daniel Spitz (medical examiner) said. He said if there were else in the house they most likely knew that an altercation was taking place. Once I had a teacher who snapped and chopped off his estranged wife's head in front of their child because she wanted a divorce. Maybe thats it What are these father's thinking? Apparently nothing. I do think they should look into this so called "friend" who loaned him the getaway truck. I know that their are other sick people out there but I am just talking about these 2 cases. If he wanted her dead wasnt choking her to death enough? I hope he was trying to hide what he did by dismembering her body for his children's sake. But that doesnt seem too likely.

I agree. He couldn't stand her sucess compared to his job in a machine shop. Nothing wrong with working in a machine shop or any other blue coller job.
