No sooner has the story about that girl in Aruba faded from the nation's conciousness entirely, this story starts getting national press. How many people are murdered in this country on a daily basis, and this is the one the pick out?
I think you're right, and I've brought it up on this forum before. But I think this is a little bit more of a broadly interesting story, given the fact that her husband defends murderers for a living. All sorts of nasty suspect possibilities came up because of that (former client, family member of a former client's victim, someone involved with his current trial, HIM). Assuming this kid did it, this will end up being more of a random occurrence
