    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS.

Psycho For Love: Edward Tetz killed his wife, Kimberly Tetz, 11 months after they wed

Kimberly TetzFrom Edwart Tetz’ appeal: In December 1996, defendant began an affair with Michelle Melini roughly six months after his marriage to his wife. Defendant had discussed divorce with his wife in January 1997, and Melini told defendant he would have to choose between his wife and her.

At 8:44 p.m. on February 11, 1997, Vineland police officers discovered Kimberly slumped over in her small car in Giampietro Park. She was shot twice at close range by a shotgun. Substantial evidence supporting the conviction included: the affair and defendant’s request for divorce; defendant drove a white pickup truck and eyewitnesses saw both a truck and a small car, like defendant’s and Kimberly’s, in dvawareness3the park shortly before the homicide; defendant’s statements to police regarding his affair and his whereabouts before the homicide were belied by other evidence; defendant owned shotguns and police discovered in defendant’s home partially empty boxes of ammunition like that used in the murder; and a blood sample found near the truck’s gas tank lid matched the DNA of a sample of Kimberly’s blood. Actually, two samples of Kimberly’s blood were collected and provided to police. One was provided to a police officer present at the autopsy. A second sample was provided later, by a person at Shore Memorial Hospital where Kimberly was taken after the murder. A Vineland police officer retrieved the sample from the hospital and transported it unrefrigerated to Vineland.
