Sounds like a plot written by Edgar A. Poe.

Shades of the “Cask of Amontillado”.

“The couple had one child, who drowned at age 25, three years before Nichols’ disappearance.”

Makes you wonder if that was really an accident, in hindsight.

Wonder if the husband was a suspect in the drowning of the child also.

My guess is that the loss of their child filled their marriage with bitterness and ultimately murder. Many marriages do not survive the loss of a child.

Most likely, she fell asleep while leaning against the wall’s studs and the drywallers just didn’t see her.

Can’t say I’ve heard of that one, but Forsyth was a good story teller, maybe I’ll check it out.

Neighbors described the widower murderer as a compulsive hoarder.

Strange dude, indeed:

“He literally had seven or eight of those Dumpsters in his backyard also filled with stuff,” neighbor Al Delaney told the Poughkeepsie Journal.

Homeowner Judy Wyskida said she would notice James Nichols sitting in his car outside of his home because he couldn't fit inside the house. That wasn’t the only eccentric behavior he exhibited.

“We saw him drive past us one day and he had a dummy with a hat on in the passenger seat in the front of the car,” said Wyskida, adding, “It was just very odd.”

What do you think it means that he couldn’t fit inside his house? Too much junk or his size? I’m guessing his size, but then how to fit him inside his car? LOL.

Report him to the HOV lane police.
