Default Gotcha!!

Took a while, but......gotcha. I think people erroneously think tosssing someone overboard is an easy way get away with murder.

He has been indicted, not convicted.

If he did murder her he should have had things set up so the transfers were harder to trace.

I won't let Betty read about this. I do wonder why she has taken out a $2,000,000 life insurance on me.

Take care,
Mike

I hope he is convicted...

Of course this isn't funny - but the thing that concerns me is this...

The cruise bashers who constantly say that cruise ships are rampant with crime have often said people who go missing were "murdered & thrown overboard".

I personally think the vast majority are suicides, because in many cases they are older and are often traveling alone.

I am hoping this case will show it just isn't that easy to get away with that - with the video surveillance and all.

In this day and age, video cameras are everywhere...it boggles my mind that anyone trying to get away with "anything" would not be caught on camera.
