So when does the trial for the husband start? This approach may have worked in 1950, but not today

the owl theory makes more sense then getting beaten with a fire place poker but receiving zero injuries to the actual skull.

This one was so disappointing! Why? What was his motive? Has he appealed? Does he still deny the crime? Were they ever able to link him to victim in any other way?

Not buying it. That judge is a product of a system that believes men over women, and where domestic violence is even worse than in the United States (and it's pretty bad here.) She believed this so-called hero because of his fame... despite many witnesses that heard differently and disproved his case. I did think it was funny that his defense attorneys said the text messages in which Riva showed she feared him we're just a lovers' spat. There were many witnesses who heard a lover's spat the night that Riva died. Thanks for agreeing with us that your client is a jealous, crazy freak.

I really wanted to buy into the owl theory. Just the other day I found a feather from a Heron in my hair. But it didn't get there from an attack. Probably blown from a nest and into my hair while I was on a run. If she were fighting an owl, there would have been a lot of noise... once you started fighting the owl would've started shrieking, and so would she. The claw would have been entwined in the hair, leaving my much more than just 2 microscopic feathers. There should've been DNA from the owl in those wounds. She would have fought that owl and would have had lacerations on her arms not just on her scalp. I do believe that owl attacks are possible, but they are definitely more rare than husbands killing their wives.

So once the police decided Jane was a murderer they manipulated evidence to fit what they thought the crime was.

The Everyday Bombshell

I've studied this case many times over. I do not believe this was a suicide. In fact, I think that this was retaliation against Jonah. It's very easy to see how someone could be furious at a man who made his millions through increasing the sales of cancer medication. As far as anyone outside of the medical field knew, Max was going to survive...and the word was that Rebecca had saved him. So if someone had attempted to kill the young boy in retaliation but the boy survives, the next person in line through which they could hurt Jonah would be the hero Rebecca. I've always believed that the FBI should have looked more carefully into the threats that Jonah's company was receiving from people who lost family members that couldn't afford the medication the company made. I think if my loved one was denied medication that could have saved their life, I might be tempted to get revenge as well. I would never harm a child but I bet there are people who could justify it by saying you took my loved one away from me and I'm going to take yours. To date no one has taken a serious look into these threats. Despite the fact that Max's death IS suspicious. Despite the fact that the gymnastics of this type of suicide are preposterous. Ask yourselves: how does a town like Coronado clear two murders quickly, so as not to worry the wealthy population that lives there? You declare one an accident and another a suicide. And wash your hands of it as you walk away.
