I find it hard to believe that his wife didn't know who he really was. Very hard to believe. She only wanted out of the marriage after all of the *hit started to hit the fan. Not saying that she deserved to be murdered.
What a rotten SOB to do that to those girls. As to Maggie, I think she was mostly clueless. Her sister testified that Maggie was disorganized, carefree, and easy going, the complete opposite of herself. Sister also said she, herself, balances the checkbook to the penny but Maggie was never that detail oriented. Maggie had a check bounce weeks before the murders and I think it was at that point she raised an eyebrow.
Personally, I don't understand how anyone can be that disconnected from their finances over time. Eventually one will find out what the other is doing one way or another. We know a couple who at the end of the year owed the IRS over 10K and that opened up a HUGE can of worms as to her overspending and shorting her withholdings during the year.
Something in all this financial theft Alex did doesn't match up. It was an awful lot of money, well beyond his current level of obligations and his bs pill addiction.
Russell Laffitte was convicted in Nov. 2022, and here it is 4 months later, and that POS is still awaiting sentencing and out free in society although they say he faces a potential 30-year sentence. As of today, there is no sentencing date even set yet.
