  1. Just saw this tragic story on a Dateline rerun. If you don’t want to be married anymore, get a freaking divorce! !! Murderers think they’re smarter than everyone. And that bad acting in interviews. Those poor kids-hope they’re doing well. Good riddence to an evil person.


  2. Eric Bechler insists that he’s innocent and has a website promoting him and asking for donations and gifts. Tragically, his mother Linda passed away last year.


  3. Using good looks to try to get away with criminal behavior is not limited to female criminals. Eric Bechler got away with a lot just by smiling the right way and taking off his shirt. He was visibly shocked when it didn’t work on the jury.
