Other Cases of Men Who Kill Their Wives

For extra reading here are a few other cases of men who kill their wives that are not associated with the movie or the story above on which the movie was based. 

Ohio 1996

  In 1996 Jenifer Mccrady was missing. According to her husband, police officer Jack Mccrady II, he returned home, and Jenifer was nowhere to be found. The only items that he found were her wedding band, her luggage and some photos. Police did not suspect foul play in the beginning. Only a few days later her car was found in a parking lot. There were no signs of a struggle. Crime scene technicians processed the scene, but it did not seem as though a crime had taken place.  It seemed as if she had just left town. Close friends and family knew that something had happened to her. They agreed that she would never leave her children. She had spoken to friends about problems in the marriage.  State Trooper Jack Mccrady had recently filed for divorce. During the investigation a woman came forward stating that she had seen a patrol car in a remote area, and that for some reason it struck her as very strange. Police officers investigated the location and found a mound . Once the mound was unearthed a foul odor emerged, and they found the remains of Jennifer Mccrady. The body was clothed in pajamas. She was shot in the head. Her husband Jack Mccrady was a suspect in her murder. The officer was placed on leave. A search of their home uncovered a revolver. The same type used to kill his wife. They also found dirt covered shovels. Forensic examiners found that the fibers from the home matched the fibers found at the scene, which indicated that she was murdered in her home.  An examination of the soil found on the shovels and the samples taken from the grave site matched. Ohio State police officers arrested Officer Jack Mccrady for the murder of his wife. He is currently serving out his sentence in prison.


  1. This unfortunately is not true if you read the actual interigation script her luggage was missing as well as a gray and white Gucci bag police officer that has since been found guilty of serious charges who was lead investigator on the case was found guilty on felony charges this detective took a shovel prior to reporting the grave for 3 days returned to scene then called it in without shovel forensics in fact found no evidence that she was murdered in her home and both so called crime scenes had been contaminated and stories changed and alot of contridictive statement we're made on the stand and on camera the revolver was not matched as a matter of fact the revolver was not turned in for several days there was evidence that would have cleared Mr mccrady if defense attorney had known I suggest further digging in this case

  2. Her vehicle was found nine days later and was in plain view Mr mccrady was told to take vehicle home and vehicle was not processed until the following day no divorce was filed the couple had returned from a vacation in California police officers did not investigate the area and located a mound in fact the lead investigator had been in that area with shovels and a partner 3 days prior and dug her up they thought someone had buried a cow they did not report this until 3 days later these .are the same investigators who were charged in serious crimes in 2007 go figure and the so called psych that was supposedly had a dream and directed them has contridictive statement and plainly lied I suggest a new investigation in light of new evidence and the fact that the detective who was behind it all was found guilty of severe charges and given the fact that evidence was with held that could clear Mr mccrady
