Wendy's reaction to the Garcia news is mind blowing. She then knew the flood gates were opening. If SG had used a false identity renting the Prius, the case most likely would have been solved. Simple as that.I'm half-way through Ruth Markel's book and some thoughts.
I didn't know that she was the person who informed Wendi of the first arrest (Garcia). And how she couldn't reach her (no surprise) but how Wendi frantically called her back seeking details.
Also, she really describes how barren Wendi's house was at the gathering there. She had already mentioned that Wendi was not the best housekeeper (also no surprise--she's way too much of a child herself) so the fact no toys etc were around was jarring.
Then she realized it was because they were all packed up to move the next day. It makes me wonder if any telltale signs of planning this move have been discovered that we don't know about. Like a moving truck rented. Donna is a planner and meticulous, but not a good criminal. And those details wouldn't really be pertinent to any of the other prior trials, right?
