    The major hotels in Cancun have sophisticated security surveillance, and would absolutely know what happened to this woman. This is a coverup (imo), to protect their business.

    Watched the 48 Hr. episode last night, and really does seem like there is not enough real evidence, and a very weak case both here or even in Mexico.
    Now I'm not so sure he even did it! Although he did admit to the hotel desk in the early hrs when they called about "noise", that he and his wife were arguing. Yet the room is not even 2 rooms, just 1 large room, he couldn't have beaten and killed her in front of the kids or without waking them up. Doesn't seem likely.

    For those who didn't see it:

    The last time I was in Cancun about six months ago a teenager got separated from her group of friends. The parents were at the resort, but busy having dinner, etc. Within FIVE minute security had tracked down the parents and advised them which room the teen was in (it was with an older man). They knew exactly where she was, and with whom. They had security cameras all over the property.

    I just watched the 48 hours episode and I honestly cant decide whether I think hes guilty or not.

    He had scratches on him, he made a policy on Monica a week before their trip to Cancun. He had an affair and the marriage was going through a really bad rough patch and I'm not sure who said it but I read somewhere that he didn't want to get a divorce because of how expensive it would be?

    But on the other hand, the family was sharing one bedroom. I highly doubt anyone could pull that off without waking the kids up or alerting other people. And how did he manage to carry her body out of the room, without no one seeing and then placing it in the sewer? How far was it from the room?

    Really cannot decide whether hes guilty or not hmm.

    IMO-He is guilty. He had scratches on his neck, ankles and his hands.
    The place that he is saying he received these injuries sees 100's of tourists a day, there is no way he would walk out of there with those.
    People did hear screaming and complained to the front desk.
    Let's see, the 1700 miles it took him to get to the border. He either paid someone or hitchhiked, he did not take public transportation until he made it into Tx.
    The cremation of the body, if an employee/stranger did this would he not want all the evidence preserved?

    I stayed at the Moon Palace in 2008 and was trying to find a resort map to find the room location. The bathroom was spacious so he could have strangled her in there. The toilet is located in the bathroom but through another door so could have kept her there out of sight from the children and taken them to the main building to use the bathroom there. IIRC from the 48 hrs show the maid was not allowed to clean the room that day. The sewers are located all over the property so they would be an easy place to put her. Regarding the timing of putting her there, the night club is open to 3:00 a.m. but is located on one side of the resort and there was never more then a handful of people out at that time of the night so not a lot of eyes around. IMO it would not take long to remove the lid off the sewer, go back get his wife and dump her, then head back upstairs. That would explain the numerous ins and outs registering on the door. It did cross my mind that he could have dropped her over the back railing(not the balcony) where there are no rooms but that would depend on which building he was in.

    Thanks for your update and post, as its informative being you actually know that hotel and the room (bath being spacious) because the kids did present a problem for me to see just how he managed to do this.

    Hi Frigga, I see you here! :) XX00 Deb.

    Well, I think he did kill her and a measly 12 years is not enough for having killed someone. Especially the mother of the children. He'll never even do the 12, IMO.

    MOO

    I was pretty convinced he did it until an LA Times (I think, no link and several months back) went over the lousy investigation.

    He never would have been found guilty in the States, but i think he did too. No evidence to speak of, just a few scratches on his neck he explained away.
    They said, unless the Prosecutor wins an appeal of the term, he can be out in as few as 8 with time served etc.
