    TX - Donna Sandlin, 47, Keller, 26 March 2007

    Donna Sandlin is a counselor's aide at one of our local high schools here in Keller. She has been missing since yesterday when she was last seen by her husband when she left for work. The husband is cooperating with LE and they do not believe he is involved. LE found her car yesterday and her cell phone was in a dumpster. I work for the school district and can tell you that we are all in shock. Please keep Donna and her family in your prayers.

    Her story can be found at www.nbc5i.com and www.wfaa.com

    Why do so many people go missing either on the way to work or on the way home? It happens so often. I wonder why her vehicle was found at a resturant? Did she stop there or did someone drive it there.

    I wonder if there were any problems in the marriage? Did she talk to her co-workers about any problems or to her close friends? Just seems strange when the husband is the last one to see the wife and then eventially she is found dead. I know this lady hasn't been found yet but it doesn't seem that she ran away without her vehicle. Guess we will have to wait and see. I wonder if the husband took a poly?

    So sad.. apparently the husband has confessed to her murder, told authorities where to locate her body, which is now undergoing identification. I am so sorry to hear that this is the outcome in this missing persons case.. my prayers to the family and friends of Donna..i so wish that this was not the case. My heart goes out to those who knew her most.

    There doesnt appear to be any info on the motive at this time.

    Donna was found this morning after her husband directed LE to the location of her body. They were high school sweethearts and had been married for many years. Everyone in the school district is so sad and in shock. We have had extra counselors in all week.

    He killed her, dumped her car, jogged home, put her in his car and drove to Waco (about 3 hours from here). He attended a business meeting THEN dumped her body. Neighbors say that the couple walked hand in hand after dinner each night. How could he do such a thing???

    I feel so sorry for her children. They are in their early 20's but have now lost both their mom and dad.

    More information is at www.wfaa.com.

    It seems like it happens daily doesn't it? I wonder what happened between this couple? They walked every night holding hands? When I think about it the people that I always thought had the best marriages...didn't..and eventially ended up divorced. Every time I was in shock. Everything couldn't have been the way it seemed in this marriage. Some couple can really put on a good front in front of people.

    The latest in this story is that he was having an affair with a woman in Colorado. He and Donna had been married for 30 years....since they were both only 17 years old. Our community is in such shock. This was a picture perfect couple. Donna apparently did not know about the affair. She was always happy and smiling. She and I work for the same school district and everyone who has ever met her just can't believe what has happened. What on earth makes someone do something like this???

    Doesn't that just remind you of Scott and Laci? She was happy and always smiling and didn't have a clue anything was wrong. Everyone thought they were just the happiest couple. Then she was dead. The same with Donna by the sounds of it and her husband was having an affair too without her knowing it. He fooled everyone too. I wonder if he is a sociopath like Scott?

    You know, I thought the same thing when I first heard all of this. They had been married since they were only 17 years old! How do you kill someone whom you are supposed to love and have spent so much of your life with? It just blows my mind. Today our local news reported that even though he was having an affair with a woman in Colorado, they do not consider that the motive, yet they are not saying WHAT the motive is! My heart just breaks for her kids who have now lost both parents......

    I was talking to one reporter about this story and they told me that the husband had told the mistress that Donna was his "ex-wife". She had no idea that he was still married.

    He said he "snapped". What exactly does snapped mean? He strangled her with a shoe string, and she had bruises. Maybe Donna did find out about the mistress and confronted him with the knowledge and he blew up. Maybe he thought that he could get away with the murder, but did not have time to clean up since they found blood in both cars and in the house, and felt it was better to just confess.

    What is the matter with these guys....you would think that they have never heard of getting a divorce. I would just like to do a poll in the prisons of people who have murdered wives..ex-wives...girlfriends and ex-girlfriends. I would ask each one....Was It Really Worth It??????
