I have been looking for a thread for this show on TWOP for what feels like forever. I too am in the club of watching these shows so much, I've practically seen all the episodes. My Sunday ritual is to watch the marathon which my mom thinks is totally weird and creepy. I do give it a break every once in awhile when I start getting freaked out in my apartment, since I live alone. And I'm a veteran of City Confidential and American Justice too.
A couple of comments on some of the cases. I back-read a few pages and noticed some believe Elisha Hughes was guilty (she with the husband who got shot in the house while she and their two daughters were upstairs sleeping). That one was definitely one of those "I wonder" cases for me and I guess we'll never know the truth. She seemed so sweet and soft-spoken in her interview that you almost do want to believe she was innocent and by all accounts, there didn't seem to be any greed or really out of character, strange behavior from her after her husband died.
But still, the fact that someone got into the house, with apparently no forced entry, was able to shoot the guy and take off with no one seeing a thing within the few moments it took her to get downstairs seemed odd. There were the tire tracks that weren't explained but that could have just been someone driving by. For me, the thing that always made me most suspicious though, was that BOTH little girls never woke up throughout the ENTIRE drama...not when gun shots went off in their house, not when she ran downstairs and called police and not when the place was crawling with family and police members.
I wonder if they ever thought to test those girls and see if they were not given some children cold medicine or something to knock them out. And when I consider that, it then makes me believe that she pre-meditated his murder which damn... Again, definitely one of those "I don't know, I'm not sure" cases for me.
In terms of some of the scariest women/cases featured; for me it's definitely the crazy couple mentioned above; the woman who killed her first husband, the second one, then tried to kill her daughter and frame her for the murders; the one who buried the poor ex-husband in acid and the woman who murdered her husband who was dying of cancer and I believe got the death penalty and deservedly so. Because how wicked must you to be to brutally murder your husband who has terminal cancer. Evil.
Another case that I found fascinating was the one where the woman apparently pretended this other woman was stalking her husband and family by creating a fake email account and sending crazy emails to the family. I was especially amazed by the fact that she likely slept with the man's dead body in the house, got up and had breakfast with her son like normal and went to do household shopping with the son to create her alibi.
One case I thought was completely ridiculous was the pastor and his girlfriend who plotted to kill his wife and had his son do it. I could not believe this woman was still sitting there trying to say she wasn't guilty even after all the proof of so many things she'd lied about. She had no relationship with the man but they are arrested together in her bed a week after the wife's murder. It was not serious and there was no engagement but there are pictures of her happily trying on a wedding dress. I mean come on now.
