Our special guest this week on TRUE CRIMES is Marilee Strong.
She's an expert on men who murder their wives…not in crimes of passion, but in detached cold blood because their wives — and even children– have become inconvenient.
Ms Strong's research, coupled with her exceptional journalistic skills, make her one of the most respected experts on this "alternative to divorce." Strong will discuss women who are dead or presumed dead and are believed by authorities to have been murdered by a husband or a boyfriend, falling victim precisely because of their physical and emotional vulnerability to their killer.
All “went missing” under mysterious circumstances, but none of these women was ever truly lost. They didn’t wander off, run away from home, suffer amnesia and forget where they belonged. They were deliberately “disappeared” by someone who had good reason to try to make sure they would never be found, someone who wanted to erase them from the face of the earth. Some are found, some never have the dignity of a an actual burial. Though the media has sometimes complained about excessive coverage of supposedly "young white missing women," these cases have received very little coverage beyond their immediate communities and the victims match no profile of ethnicity, age, or race.
