Well, this is good to know. My exhusband's mother dissappeared when he was a baby and was never heard from again. When ex and I were married, we lived (and I still do) in another state from his father and stepmom. I had always heard bits and peices of rumors about what had happened to my ex's mother. I never knew that FIL had been publicly accused of murder. Well my ex called today to let me know that his father has finally been cleared: http://www.siouxcityjournal.com/art...est_news/d1d623d0832d47f8862571ee006bff5b.txt I won't mention my ex FIL's name since it isn't in this article, but I always knew him to be an extremely sweet and caring man. However, if anyone knows more to this story, I would love to hear it. I have searched for my ex's mother (grandmother of my children) for years off and on. I don't know what name she was living under, but I was never able to find her. Now I know that she passed away five years ago. I always wanted to ask her what posesses a woman to walk away from her children and never look back.
