Count me in.

The kids being in the room? Well, if he planned it ahead of time.....he could have easily drugged the kids so they would have slept through the actual killing and he could have locked the body up in a closet or a suitcase so the kids wouldn't see it for that one day. Again....this show was sorely lacking in actual details.

The wife's sisters did get her body.....so did they have another autopsy done? Did they check under the fingernails? Again....no info.

And yes, that hotel worker could have lured the wife into a secluded area to attack her and then put her body into the sewer.

From the little bit we know, I can't see the husband, or anyone, being convicted of this murder.
I agree, I don't see how he would be convicted unless there is some hardcore forensics tying him to her murder. Also, how would he have been able to get her through the hotel without anyone seeing him! He would have had to carry her through a maze of stairways, hallways, lobby, etc. how is that even possible!!! And it is well known how dangerous Mexico can be...murders, kidnapping, etc. are quite common.

Who knows what type of court system there is in Mexico I think it's Guilty until proven Innocent.
We may say it's the same in the U.S., but for the most part it is Innocent until proven Guilty. He may not have a chance in hell in the Mexican court system, regardless of the lack of evidence.

People who incorporate such interests into their ego, and do not channel this interest in a positive direction can do very bad things.

It does say something about all of us - but what it says is that OUR PSYCHES were able to divert this interest into a hobby or in some cases a profession.
Our super-egos are repelled (which is good) by the awful deeds of these criminals. The super-ego keeps the interest in check. Fascinated? Sure. But we know it is wrong and bad.

Sociopaths have no such repulsion. They do not have the normal "check" that tells them that something is wrong.
I heard this very interesting quote the other day on "The New Detectives" show (Mind Hunters episode) on ID...FBI profiler Robert Ressler discusses getting into the mind of a serial killer, in fact he is often credited with coining the term "Serial Killer"

“Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.”
~Friedrich Nietzsche~ 19th Century German Philosopher

I have read that is the best thing you can do if attacked .... scratch with your nails and get as much skin as you can and pull hair too. Thanks to Jeff Ashton when he first introduced DNA into the courts. LOL I had to throw that in.

Sometimes if there are new developments Ive noticed they will go ahead and rerun the entire story with about five minutes of new material at the end.

Yes, this guy was truly cold blooded if you ask me. The video of his car was something you could just tell he wasnt counting on by the way he reacted on the phone.
