    Just heard about this case. All of these people are in my age range so it does hit home. Once again I'm flummoxed by the callousness of a person who apparently had everything going for her. I guess that $1.75 million was just too tempting to pass up. Not sure how these people are able to sleep at night.

    Well, if they slept well before, it's going to be tougher now....I can't imagine the beds in prison are anywhere as close to comfortable as the ones they had at home! :D

    Thank goodness they turned on each other. Without that, this would still be unsolved.

    I really feel for his mom. I hope she receives apologies from all parties, and I sincerely hope that her granddaughter has it in her to get to know her grandmother.
