This man has not been convicted of murder, nor even charged with that crime.
With nothing more than circumstantial evidence this paper and the media in
general want to sensationalize this woman death and make it a crime. The wife
was shown to die of natural causes. No charges have been brought. Only a lot
of hot air from family and others with a grudge against this man. He committed
adultery not murder. Leave him alone. He went to prison for his admitted
crime. Stop this trial by insinuation in the court of Nancy Grace and the
If Martin McNeil is not guilty of his wifes death then character assassination
is really rotten. Do his daughters have anything to gain by his conviction.
Are they all blood related to him? He did some really stupid things. I think
that he knows that now. I hope that he is not guilty.
@Go Big Blue - in the America I grew up in, everyone had the right to an
opinion, and often expressed it just like they do today. You can withhold
yours, and declare the man innocent if the prosecution doesn't prove a
legal case. Those of us with more information are free to form personal
opinions based on the circumstances, which are horrifically unfavorable to the
so-called doctor. And to Maibraina - just because an allegation
cannot be legally proven in a court of law, does not make it "baseless"
by any means, including whatever source you use for definitions. Just a guess,
but I'll bet the daughter knows quite a bit more than you about her father,
and what you call "rumor" is probably quite factual to her.
@ MrGlass: The reason he wasn't convicted of murder is because there
wasn't any evidence of murder; just suspicious circumstances that
couldn't be proved. And in this country that's not enough to send a
man to prison. The state needs to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he is
guilty. That is why Josh Powell didn't stand trial. They didn't have
enough on him to convict him. Until it can be proved, and by definition,
it's only rumor and baseless allegation.
In the America I grew up in you were innocent until proven guilty.
Dr Droovey Dateline or a similiar program ran a segment on him. It was
chilling. These are not baseless allegations against him. I wish I could
recall which program it was. Could have been 48 hours.
Rumor? Character assassination? Sometimes family members and others know more
about another member than the police will ever discover. Remember Josh Powell?
Isn't it great we live in a country where family members can get themselves
in to the news by making baseless allegations against other family members?Why doesn't the family let the police do their jobs? Until the
police find some evidence and are able to press charges, this story is nothing
but rumor and character assassination.
As I recall, this man is not actually "a doctor" as he did not complete
and graduate from medical school. He is not qualified to practice medicine in
Utah and I'm sure this case has now caught the attention of DOPL.
