    Joanne's case on Charlie Project:


    Based on this information,

    I think Joanne's second husband, Philip, was abusive. Note the conflicting answers that he gives. Joanne may have fled an abusive marriage. It would be interesting to find out if Philip took a polygraph. I think he is hiding something. Bruises on a woman's face and body by accident? And seemingly repeatedly? (It says witnessed by other people, and that her Mother "feared for her daughter's safety.") Those were "accidents" as well? Can't buy that, no way.

    Philip said he "couldn't remember" the exact date that he last saw Joanne...anyone think that's a little weird? This is the man's wife, supposedly coming to pack up and leave the marriage permanently! You would imagine that sort of thing would be emblazoned on a person's mind.
