    Thank goodness the scumbag was arrested


    So sad for Tracy's mom, and for Tracy to have died in such a horrible manner.
    Rest in Peace to my best buddy and baby, Buster ~ He crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Jan. 3, 2011. I miss you, Buster and love you with all my being.

    I'm so thankful that he has finally been arrested. I can just imagine the relief Tracy's family are feeling. He is in jail and now her family will be able to decide what to do with Tracy's home, vehicle, and other belongings. I'm sure it is a relief to have that piece of scum out of Tracy's home.

    WOWT | Tribble Waives Extradition

    ... That document (the arrest warrant) includes information on the time of Tracy's death and Wilber says, "I think Mr. Tribble had indicated he left for work at 6 a.m. and then went to work and discovered her missing the next day and her blood alcohol content was not consistent with somebody who had slept it off so to speak. And so we were really able to narrow the time frame down."

    The arrest warrant states that Tracy's blood alcohol content when she died was .25 -- three times the legal limit. Investigators say that puts her time of death between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. Stan Tribble told investigators she was asleep in bed at 6 a.m. when he left for work...

    Radio Iowa: Council Bluffs man pleads "not guilty" in wife's murder

    The husband of a murdered Council Bluffs woman has pleaded not guilty to killing her...

    Autopsy results show she died from asphyxiation. Prosecutors say Stan Tribble has a history of suspected domestic violence that led up to Gostomski-Tribble’s death.

    An attorney representing Tribble says the evidence against his client is purely circumstantial. His trial has been set for November.

    The most recent articles, from September, state that the trial is set for mid-November. I'm hoping that that hasn't changed. I can't wait to see this guy on trial for this atrocious crime.

    I knew that trial date was to good to be true...to fast. Oh well, he won't be out beating anyone else to death. That guy is so big he would scare me to death if he started after me. Tracy didn't have a chance with him...he is huge with great big ham hands.

    SW Iowa News - Stan Tribble pleads guilty to abuse charges

    ... Gostomski-Tribble told officers her husband came home from work and the two started to argue. He allegedly ripped the bedroom door off of the doorframe and punched Gostomski-Tribble in the chest before leaving the residence.

    Tribble was found in his vehicle a few blocks away from their home.

    Tribble told officers the couple had an argument but denied the assault, and he allegedly told officers that she got the bruises from falling down stairs.

    Council Bluffs police officers arrested Tribble, and a no-contact order was issued on April 4. The no contact order was lifted on April 6.

    On May 11, the Pottawattamie County Attorney's Office filed misdemeanor serious assault-domestic abuse charges against Tribble, eight days after his wife was reported missing on May 3...

    His trial starts next month....it is about time. I hope he gets LWOP or the death penalty. I wish CTV would cover this trial but it is doubtful that they will. I've heard that by next year there will be no more trials and people will have to pay for Extra where they can watch the trials live on their puters. I suppose it will be the trials that CTV decides to show though just like now.

    Court TV has developed quite a following. I'm not sure how they will allow that to happen - that would be lots of people out of jobs and a TON of money lost for CTV if that were to happen. Or do you mean that Court TV themselves will be asking people to pay to watch them? I wonder if that's even legal - to charge someone to watch a trial. Sounds highly unethical to me. Whatever the case, I hope that's not true. I don't know what I'd do without CTV's daily coverage.

    I'm very curious to see what evidence they have against him... we haven't heard much about that ~ Unless they are using past behavior as a major factor...like his abuse charges...anyone remember any evidence that they have??

    Attorney Asks Judge To Throw Out Details Of Client's Turbulent Relationship - News Story - KETV Omaha

    Stan Tribble's attorney, James Burger, told a judge on Monday that he doesn't want the jury to hear his client's history of domestic violence. Tribble pleaded guilty to assaulting his wife one month before she was slain.

    Pottawattamie County Attorney Matt Wilber argued that there's nothing more relevant in a domestic murder case than the defendant's history of domestic violence...

    The defense also asked to keep out certain statements that Tribble made to detectives early in the investigation before his wife's body was found...

    The judge took the matters under advisement and said he will announce his decision next week.

    Attorneys on Monday revealed the first glimpse of possible defenses that may be used in Stan Tribble's first-degree murder trial in the death of his wife, Tracy.

    Tribble's attorneys want to introduce the possibility that Tracy Tribble committed suicide.

    They also asked a judge to allow evidence they say shows a drug dealer was involved in her death...

    The medical examiner considered suicide as a possible cause of Tracy Tribble's death, and the jury should be given the same opportunity, Burger said. He wants to present evidence that Tracy Tribble made suicide attempts...

    What does the defense plan to say..."Tracy hit herself on the head three times which caused blunt forced trauma?" I hope that none of the things that they want dropped are dropped. The jury should know that he was abusive.

    I seem to remember that quite a number was done on her head. Suicide...give me a break!

    here is the latest article regarding Stan Tribbles trial. It has a lot of new information not previously released.

    http://www.ketv.com/news/13586547/detail.html

    ---cut---
    During the fall of 2003, Gostomski said her daughter called her to ask her to pick her up at a gas station in Yutan, Neb. -- about 30 miles west of Omaha. Gostomski-Tribble told her mother she had hitchhiked there after her husband took her cell phone and threw it into a cornfield.

    Gostomski said her daughter confided in her about several fights she had with Tribble over the years. In January 2006, Gostomski said her daughter arrived at her house with dried pizza on her face. She said Gostomski-Tribble was angry and upset. The prosecutor asked Gostomski if she knew how her daughter got pizza on her face.

    "Stan had her down on the floor, holding her down. He chewed the pizza and spit at her," Gostomski said.

    Her daughter stayed at her house that night, she testified, and Tribble called throughout the night.

    Victim's Mother Runs Sobbing From Courtroom - News Story - KCCI Des Moines

    The prosecution's case in a Pottawattamie County murder trial became too much for the victim's mother to bear Friday morning, and she ran from the courtroom in tears ... as prosecutors called police to the stand to talk about the day they found a body in the river.

    Earlier, the victim's father, John Gostomski, said Friday morning in court that he objected to the marriage between Tribble and his daughter. He said Tribble had gotten another woman pregnant a year before...

    "I (Tracy's father) asked him, what is he doing at work when his wife is missing. 'Well, someone has to make some money around here,'" Gostomski said Tribble replied...

    ... she had severe blunt-force trauma to her head, and explained how serious those injuries were.

    "If she had survived and gone to a hospital, she would have needed major reconstructive surgery and probably would have resulted in disfigurement," Klein said...

    The article ends with an ex-boyfriend stating that Tracy had called him a couple of times upset including on May 2nd. He also states that he got a call from Stan Tribble thereafter telling him to stop lying on television.

    SW Iowa News - Testimony in Tribble trial gets personal

    ... John Gostomski told the courtroom Friday that his daughter was an outgoing, gregarious, fun-loving and positive woman. He testified he did not know his daughter was going to marry Stan Tribble until shortly before their 2003 marriage, and he made it clear under questioning that he did not like the man his daughter married.

    "I told her she could do better," Gostomski testified. His testimony drew objections from the defense team at several points, and he said his son-in-law seemed calm and unconcerned after Tracy Tribble's disappearance.

    "I told Stan it sounded to me like Scott Peterson," Gostomski said...
