Hacking vs. Powell

Anybody else having flashbacks to the Lori Hacking case?  Back in 2004.  The current Susan Powell case sure is giving me them.

There are some differences though.  In the Hacking case the wife supposedly went out jogging and never came back.  In the Powell case the husband took the kids out* and came back to find his wife missing.

In both cases, the closer police look(ed), the more holes they found in the husbands’ stories.

I pray that they find Susan Powell alive and relatively well.  But if I were a betting man, my money would be on it turning out a lot like the Hacking case.  I just hope that they find her, one way or the other, so her family can get the closure they deserve.




*Camping.  At midnight.  In the middle of winter.  With a 2 and 4 year old. Just overnight.  Yeah, I believe it.

Yeah, and with Hacking, there was the new mattress. with this guy, it's a quilt and the mysterious wet spot on the carpet with fans left to blow it dry.
I seriously doubt that this poor woman is alive.

These kinds of stories, however, do remind me that being a single woman is really not the worst situation to be in......
