Description

On New Year’s day of 2012, 38 year old Shelby Wilkie went missing. She left behind her three month old daughter. Shelby had been planning to leave her abusive husband. Michael Wilkie eventually admitted to burning Shelby’s body, though he insisted he didn’t kill her. He claimed that she committed suicide due to post partum depression. But the blood evidence in their home told a very different story.

1. Once an abuser, always an abuser. 2. If you suspect he is hiding something from you, he is. 3. Men who cry "I'm sorry", aren't. 4. You cannot change someone.
