Poor Traci felt so bad that after she killed her husband, had an affair with the guy she was cheating on her husband with just days after killing her husband. Then after she ran him off. Went after another guy and posted nude pictures of herself taking a bubble bath, all over the internet.
Had her friends send death threats to her the new boyfriend while she was on probation for killing her husband.
Poor woman. Real salt of the earth.
I feel so sorry for her.

Yah know I never thought of that....they didnt talk at all about where the gun came from....the whole thing stinks
Are you deaf, aol? The gun was discussed and hubby was an avid hunter. And there was no meaningful evidence against Traci!!!

Just watches for the first time. The thing that is really weird is if he had 100,000$ life insurance and met with his lawyer about getting full custody of his kids. Then all of a sudden he's dead? Why would he kill himself with three kids he loved and was gonna try for full custody? This episode bugged me. And like she took a shower? Come on. Why'd ya take one? Then 7-10 days later with that one guy? Wouldnt you wanna recover from your husbands death instead of hanging in hotels with a guy? Also she said she was uncomfortable talking at the restaurant cause there were cops there? What you dont want them to hear what your talking about? Hmm I think guilty. That's just my opinion.

Agreed. And ya think if he was gonna commit suicide he wouldn't have done it laying down in his bed with his kids in the other room. I don't think so. Perfect opportunity for her to do it. Living together, easy clean up, and lots of time to set stuff up. And a nurse!!! How do you not do something to your dying husband? Hmm...

Faith schmaith, this is supposed to be based on facts, not delusional dogmatic religion. This woman's heart is shattered and she is not 'whining' she is emotionally broken. Wake up and smell the coffee, she got railroaded by a lying scheming prosecutor, and a perjuring Texas Ranger. All that matters to them is the little gold star for a conviction so they can boost their careers as 'defenders of truth and justice'. I watched the show and this poor woman is as innocent as a new born. I also happen to live in Texas, and I can tell you there are a lot of cases that have been found where prosecutors lied, hid evidence, made up evidence, perjured themselves, put people on the stand to commit perjury... there is no end as to what they will do. She needs to be freed and allowed to get the hell away from here. And these prosecutors who try cases like this and lie, cheat and whatever they need to do to win should be brought up on charges and sent to jail for a long time.

I just watched "48 hours: Point Blank." What struck me, other than the incessant wining, was her body language. When someone is lying their body language doesn't match what they are saying verbally. For example she would nod her head yes as she verbally said "I did not kill my husband." LIAR!!!! I kept an open mind and tried to believe this women, but there is the obvious motive, winding up in a hotel room 5 days later, and finding him after taking a shower. Gee, I wonder why? Could it be that she wanted to wash all the evidence off of herself before calling the paramedics? I agree that the police work was sloppy, perhaps the evidence was even falsified, but that doesn't mean she's innocent. Unfortunately, when law enforcement knows they have the right person, they may become overzealous in trying to obtain an indictment and an ultimate guilty verdict. Think OJ Simpson....

I grew up with Traci and the truth is no one will ever know what exactly happened. Most of you posting don't even know her yet have plenty to say. Scott was controlling and had mental issues. I knew him since grade school. He was her first real boyfriend so she had no dating experience. Maybe after years of moving, being controlled and having 3 children she wanted attention from someone else. Not saying it is right but guarantee not all of you are saints. Maybe she was scared of losing everything and did do it. Maybe he really did shoot himself and ruined her life. Don't forget he was alive when she called the ambulance. She didn't know if he would wake up and tell on her if she had indeed done it. Big risk for a guilty person. No, it wasn't a smart move to be seen at a hotel days later but again, are you perfect? She is and always was a terrific mother. She is not a threat to society. She works hard at all she does. God is her only judge and one day she will answer to him or be greatly rewarded for the strength she showed on earth surviving sll of this. Don't be so quick to judge people you don't really know and even if you do, it isn't your job. Unless you are perfect, work on yourself. If you are perfect then congratulations, you are the only one in the world.

She is a deceitful and manipulative individual who puts up a front of a christian, mother and soft spoken individual with high morals however she is far from it. She has had numerous affairs since her husband died and they all have been with married men. She has a sinister undertoe about her and I seriously doubt her innocence.

I have knew Traci and Scott for several years, we went to nursing school together and worked evenings at the same place. They were truley in love. Trace was one of the most caring persons in our class. There is no way she could have ever killed Scott. She adored him and his children.

Ella esta actualmente trabajando en un animal shelter, y se ve tranquila y feliz con lo que esta haciendo, trabajando en el area de la salud. Se ve en paz y que ya supero esa horrible experiencia, actua muy segura de si misma.
