    Also said Police found signs of a violent act in the house. I don't think falling downstairs equates to damaged drywall with JR's bloody hair affixed.

    BR told Police where to locate the body and is negotiating his plea deal. He's guilty-- knows he's going down and I don't think there will be a trial. MOO

    I will never understand something as senseless as this. When I found out my wife was pregnant, I was extremely happy and excited. I looked forward to welcoming in a new member of our little family. My wife was a high-risk pregnancy so when our little girl was born without any birth defects, we were grateful.

    I don't think so either. I just hope they don't let him plead guilty to a lesser charge than 2nd degree murder.

    Yes, well... some people aren't very bright. (This includes women, though this answer is mostly focused on the men). Some men think a lot about/of sexual satisfaction and everyday availability; and they think a lot about getting married, because after a certain age, this is "What Heterosexual Men Do"; but they don't think very much in terms of equating these often-joyful experiences to "things that might tie me down", until such time as the obligations actually become real. (For an example of this stupid kind of man, I once read a letter to an online advice columnist, which claimed that a male friend of the writer's, having run out of single male friends whose wild stripper-and-booze-filled bachelor parties he could attend; stated that the friend had decided to get married solely so that he could have his own bachelor party; and my blood ran cold for the poor unsuspecting fiancee.)

    Nope. Actually investigators use products containing hydrogen peroxide or mix it with, such as Luminol, to detect blood. Bleach is actually better, and supposedly there are new products that work.

    Fortunately most of us are only concerned with cleaning out stains, in which case, peroxide is amazing.

    I haven't seen any updates lately.

    Thinking of Jennifer's family and friends. :(

    I haven’t seen anything either. It’s probably best since certain other pregnant wife murderers now have fan clubs, and this expletive was too arrogant to even bother putting any effort into trying to hide what he did- I mean...the dude bought cleaning supplies from a major grocery store just a few miles from his house, like LE wasn’t going to figure that out. I can’t wait to hear his reasoning, though.

    I also hope her friends and family know that there are a lot of us who aren’t going to forget, regardless of the lack of media attention it’s gotten.

    Just venting a little here. :)

    Yep, this case really got to me for some reason. I think it's because they both seem to come from good families, they are well educated, good jobs. WHY did it happen?? I know that real life happens, relationships break down, affairs happen. But none of that is an excuse for murder! It's the WHY that gets me here! :(

    So he wouldn’t have to take responsibility for his actions of course; i.e. cheating on pregnant wife who he was no longer in love with, (if he ever was to begin with), and pay the consequences- IF he would have gotten away with it. There’s also the remote possibility that this was a crime of passion, but all signs kind of point to premeditated. Either way, he obviously wasn’t thinking about anyone but himself and probably never has.

    I think part of what is so upsetting about this case is just that the stakes didn’t seem that high. From what I know about Jennifer, she was perfectly capable of taking care of herself and probably a child too. Their home was middle class, I don’t think they had super expensive cars or any of that. I’m no divorce lawyer, but I have doubts that he would have had too much more than child support, and maybe not even that with a good shared custody plan.

    There’s just so much stupid and pointless going on there. And more than likely man-baby style narcissism too, which is just a waste of more peoples’ time and emotions than not.

    Why has the media gone silent? Poor Jennifer. This case really got to me. BR reminds me of Watts. Anyone know when any hearings will be or any news I haven’t seen?

    Not expecting much more until after his arraignment which is at month end. I really hope he's ready to plead guilty and goes straight to sentencing before spring.

    This investigation was wrapped up early and BR essentially arrested the day after he reported his wife missing. Evidence was overwhelming. The only thing that did not happen overnight was locating JR's body which BR eventually provided investigators where to locate her remains.

    The only thing new to me was to read about the truck in the garage:

    In the attached garage, investigators found a 2015 GMC Canyon pick-up truck that also smelled of bleach. The night, Rothwell was arrested on suspicion of murder.

    I am surprised friends or family haven't commented on anything. Very quiet compared to other cases that are similar. I am sure family has been told to keep quiet but friends are usually more vocal.
