If and when this WIDOW is proven innocent, what do you think should be the US response?
Do you also doubt the death of Rob Krentz?
How about the USA college student murdered in Mexico yesterday?
I think the US should take the story at face value right now, because it could be true, and there are obvious difficulties inherent in the situation. Heck, there may be a body to be found and her story will be that much more corroborated.
That said, I will not be surprised if this "WIDOW" ends up having done a Scott Peterson instead -- there have been a lot of convenient "so and so was killed by bad guys" stories lately.
