Lots of murderers appear as 'normal folks'. 99% of the time, when watching the news of someone really horrible being arrested, and they interview the neighbors and friends, you will hear ONLY nice things about them i.e. "they seemed nice", "he used to shovel my driveway for me", "he was always playing with the kids", "she was always taking her kids to school and back", "she was such a good mom", and blah, blah<quoted text>
My friend knew them only "in passing" years ago. She didN'T know them well(my friend had a summer home there - doesN'T anymore). She just said they seemed nice & did NOT appear to be disliked by any of the locals. Just passing along to posters that BEFORE all the notoriety, the Rs appeared as NORMAL FOLKS. Your skepticism is understood.
It is meaningless what the neighbors and community think. Nobody knows what happens behind closed doors in anybody's house and especially what goes on behind closed bedroom doors when commenting on a "loving marriage"
