SOOooo. There is a murder with NO body...... and the husband's not talking??? Before I read she was married I naturally with first instinct saw this as a case where there is a jealous husband. What idiot would drive around in a car belonging to the victim they took the life of... REALLY??? And why would anyone commit a horrid crime so close to their house? .. This is very sad. Peace to the friends and family of kimberly.
