U to the G to the H!

I don't know if you have been following the Susan Powell case, a Utah woman who mysteriously disappeared about a month ago, and whose husband is OVERLY suspicious, yet no charges have been filed against him. If you haven't heard about it, the KSL article will catch you up to speed. Now, I am no law enforcement agent, so I obviously don't know how much evidence one needs to charge someone, but I have seen plenty of cases with FAR LESS evidence go to trial, so I am still at a loss of how this guy is going free, given the evidence.

But even more disturbing (and probably more telling) is the fact that, despite his wife's disappearance, he is now moving out of his crime scene of a house (see article). Yep, just packing up, leaving to start a new life. Does that not ring even the tiniest bit suspicious to anyone? Your wife disappears, and you are not doing anything about it, rather leaving town?!? I mean, sure, due to the suspicion on this guy, I don't think he could ever live a normal life there, but if you were innocent, why would you be moving at a time like this? Why wouldn't you be spending your time searching for her, or at the very least, grieving long enough to hold off on the move? Unless, of course, you are positive that there's nothing to search for. Even if they were estranged and she had just run away (which is unlikely), wouldn't you want to help police out, so your name could be cleared?

If this doesn't sound strange to you, definitely read the article and see the evidence against him, and you will know that no sane or innocent person would behave in this manner. It grosses me out that people do this- if you don't want to be with someone, just divorce them! I know that a lot of religions look down on divorce, but I'm pretty sure they look down on murder a little more.

 And, if I am wrong in judging, so be it. I guess I'll be the one to stand before the Lord on judgment day, right?

P.S.- I know, I know, I sound way too Nancy Grace in this post, but I get grossed out by this sort of thing!

These kinds of stories always make me sad. You never know the truth. I could never be on a jury unless it was super straightforward.

I am just sick of hearing a story about nothing over and over again. Its been on the news for weeks, and they never give any sorts of details about anything. But it is obvious the dude is guilty.
