I don't know why Jerry Springer would be there, but that sure as hell looks like him in the back left corner. He WAS the host when this show started, so maybe he's coming back for this coming run. Can't STAND that little boy, Mariah Cary's husband who does it now. He needs to be replaced, and Jerry was great the first season on this show.
As for this story, it's more than obvious, given the husband's sketchy behavior, that he killed her. What a cold-blooded bastard to go off and do his thing right after the cops have shown you pics of your dead bloody wife!

You got to be F'ing killing me Ecstasy does not impair you..its the greatest ****ing thing ever..let me tell not saying there could be side effects, but what about all the legal pills that are sold, tons of side effects with those things..what a joke this country is sometimes.

What is wrong with you people? I am sick after reading your posts. This is a tragedy, and whatever the case may be, many of you make snide comments about them when you know nothing about them. Did you know they were high school sweethearts and had been married for 26 years? Do you know that they have 2 children who have to be exposed to the garbage you write? They just lost their mom and all of their lives are devastated. Way to go, losers! Keep up the good work of your criticism and heartless nature. Let's see how tough you are when tragedy hits close home to you!
