I’m still writing up this man’s casefile, but I wanted to share some articles about it.

This is another case of excellent small-town investigative reporting, detailing a VERY messed-up story (in all senses of the word) out of Pennsylvania, involving Thomas Hayden, a man who dropped out of sight in 2011 and wasn’t reported missing for six years.

As in the Chapin/McCullough case I talked about yesterday, it’s pretty clear what happened and who did it. Unlike in that case, though, it looks like justice is coming along here.

    She sure does know how to get rid of a body. Sounds like she got rid of 3 of them, at least killed 3 people.

    Gee, I read the last case I feel so bad for the Step Father and Daughter, and wonder who raised her son, the poor kid, poor Lena what an awful Mother and Step Father number two, and this Step Daughter in this case. Just move on, sever ties, taking a life is awful, I can barely kill my occasional bathroom ants I feel so bad. These people are hell on Earth.

    Thanks for the recommendation on this story. The cajones of this woman granting an interview about the husband she murdered where she is the victim. The sheer audacity and arrogance. Seems like another story where the villain gets away with it. The day after she probably killed her husband, she writes in her planner that it’s lunch with Connie. The banality of evil indeed. Thanks for all you do with the website.

      I bet that reporter is never going to forget this interview. It’s not every day you spend a few hours talking to a black widow over coffee.

    btw, the little girl missing from the same Bloomfield neighborhood did not live at the Martiinque. She was visiting someone for whom she ran errands. She was last seen at the Martinique.

    I find it interesting that police were tipped off by a relative that their were remains there. Yet the husband committed suicide a year after his dead wife ran off with another man. I think that should have been a red flag. But then, who was murdering people and burying them in the backyard. That one less cold case. I feel for the kids that they now know that daddy most likely killed their mother.
