NEW YORK - The remains of a New York schoolteacher who disappeared nearly 28 years ago have been discovered hidden in a false basement wall in the house where she lived with her husband, police said on Tuesday.

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.
Man what an episode of “Holmes on Homes” that would be, huh.
Your honor, she done walked into the wall!
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.
Also "Used in Evidence" by Frederick Forsyth.
So when are they going to find Jimmy Hoffa?
Also sounds like that Beautiful South song, “The Woman in the Wall.” Guess what it’s about??
Miami Vice: Out Where The Buses Don’t Run
Ok I Lol’d. Shame on me.
Can’t say I’ve heard of that one, but Forsyth was a good story teller, maybe I’ll check it out.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman, “The Yellow Wallpaper.”
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 wasnt 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.
