This is really bothering me too. I've never known anyone who committed murder before. I liked RF when I met him eight years ago. One of his research collaborators from Northwest said in a newspaper article that he was a sweet guy who was always talking enthusiastically about his wife and young daughter. He feels certain that he is innocent. However, it is looking very bad for RF now though and I just cannot fathom how a man can get to be 64 years old, get angry at his wife, hold onto that anger long enough to order cyanide and kill her in a cruel and heinous manner, and take his daughter's mother away from her. He is known for having a temper. He wrote me an angry email when he didn't like an article I wrote about his work (and I still don't understand this because the article was both accurate and complimentary!). But lots of people are quick to get angry and they express themselves and that is the end of it. I just feel like I want to understand how something like this could happen.
