    PA - Kelly McBride, 21, Northampton, 18 Feb 1984 *J. McBride guilty*



    Article from 2001:

    Tod Fossetta says he may forgive James W. McBride -- sentenced Wednesday to life in prison for murdering Fossetta's sister -- if McBride admits his guilt and reveals where he hid the body.

    Fossetta spoke after the sentencing hearing for McBride, 42, who was convicted Tuesday of first-degree murder for killing his wife, Kelly McBride, 17 years ago in the couple's Northampton Borough home...

    DNA evidence showed that a mattress and a dresser at the McBride home were stained with the blood of a person conceived by Judith Evans and Robert Fossetta, Kelly McBride's parents. Kelly McBride's body has not been found.

    On Feb. 10, 1984, Heckman said, she and friends were walking down a Northampton street when McBride came out of his house and asked them to join a party. Kelly McBride, Heckman said, was in the kitchen as her husband and other guests sat in the living room.

    Heckman said James McBride was discussing how to commit a murder and not get caught. His suggestions, she said, included knocking out the victim's teeth so dental records couldn't be used for identification, burning the corpse in a barrel, and burying the body in a fresh grave, preferably the night before a casket was to be lowered.

    I know the height is off. But, when I look at her picture next to the fridge and in the doorway, she seems a lot taller to me than 5'1". Unless she has huge platform shoes on. Anyway...

    It doesn't look like a fridge to me. It looks like a cabinet, maybe white paint or enamel on metal. Whatever it is, it's short enough to have what looks to be a microwave on top of it, something that would have to be accessible for every day use. There's only one thing plugged into the outlet which could be the microwave. Kentucky is a long way to go to dump a body - not unheard of but still a considerable distance. Lots of blood evidence found at her home. I just think she'll be found closer to home. JMHO.
