The fact that they found the cabin door double locked from the inside is a pretty good indicator that it is not a murder by a member of the crew. Even a member of the crew would not be able to set the double locks from outside of the cabin.

Of course, it's possible that the husband dumped his wife overboard and then jumped himself or vice versa, making it a murder-suicide....

But we also can rule out a murder-suicide by a member of the crew by the fact that no members of the crew were reported missing.

However, I would not have know that unless this thread was started and the media reported on what happened. Now that I know it was a suicide I don't need to know anything else about it. I hope the family is left in peace (by the media) to deal with their grief. Out of respect to the family this is my last post on this thread.
