Yes...time for the husband to come clean and be right with his Lord. He seems like a spiritually fine man, who made a grave error while under extreme stress. We see lots of this with our economy. God's richest blessings to all--and forgiveness is waiting.

Not every post in Heidi's guestbook mentions Nick. Some only comfort her parents, family and friends. I am guessing, but perhaps opinion is divided on the circumstances of her death.

I think what goes on between him and God his none of our concern but legally ...that is our concern for those of us in the neighborhood for certain who are concerned if in fact there is a crazed intruder creeping into homes at the crack of dawn.

If you have a possible intruder and you are upstairs- why go downstairs(in the dark?) You can reach out and touch and intruder with your shotgun from 100 yards away. Why would you go downstairs? Wait for the intruder to come to you and give em a shot or two from fifteen feet..

also- if you are struggling with an intruder at the bottom of the stairs- and your wife was shot in the back in the kitchen- did she go ahead of you down the stairs to confront the intruder even though you had the gun? Story seems to have holes..

She got shot in the back because she was trying to flee the house. I would also go out the door rather than back upstairs myself.

I can't believe that this is probably going to end up a cold case. It sickens me!

He did it. His family knows he did. His family are murderers as well. You can fool some naive SOB bastards, but not me. Keep an eye on Ben, his younger brother.

This will not end up a cold case. He will be found out. He will be convicted. And his shame will be on his entire lying family.

If he ain't convicted he'll marry again. I mean, he's got one of the best feel-sorry-for-me pickup lines going.

Whats really sad is that HE read the eulogy @ her funeral. Still waiting to hear of his arrest.. it is just a matter of time. My heart aches for her everyday when I drive past the house on the way to work.

I guess if you have enough money and are able to work up a BS enough story, anything is possible. I think of Heidi everyday.. and everyday I wait to hear that there has been a break in the case.. but nothing.. Next week it will be a year.. And where is Nick these days?

Nick got remarried this past August of 2012. I'm devasted at the news. If I felt he was innocent of murder I would be happy he could move on (even though its rather soon) but come on! Two years later and he's remarried? What idiot would marry him? And I noticed his new wife's Facebook (Rachel Firkus) doesn't have a single pic of him prob cause he doesn't want the medias attention or she's embarrassed.. It's super sketchy.
