Domestic violence murders can be and frequently are among the worst of the worst. I don’t go to the US Marshall’s site or the FBI site near as much as I should. But I think I will make more of an effort to get over there now. At the respective sites they have more details on the crimes that each of the wanted have been accused of, the rewards available and they have pictures of the wanted persons. I encourage everyone to check them out. You never know when you might be standing next to one of them in a store.
What stands out to me the most is many of them don’t look like criminals. They look like people I might be familiar with. And at least some of them don’t sound like they would be criminals. But you cannot use the way they look, the jobs they hold, or their ability to sweet-talk to judge capability for crime.
Instead you have to look at their honesty, the way they handle problems, their use of manipulation, and their use of control in a relationship.
If the above did what they are accused of doing, then they have not only taken lives and caused tragedies. They have caused pain to families. And not just their victim’s families. They have also caused pain to their own families. What is frightening is each of them are now at large. On the run it is true. But at large and going on with their lives. And what is frightening is that human nature being what it is, it is entirely possible that somewhere some girl or some woman thinks they have met the nicest, sweetest guy. And it is entirely possible that they won’t know his background.
