No Option But Murder

No Option But Murder.  In the summer of 1998 a computer expert feels his marriage is not up to par and rather than getting a divorce, he dates women online.  In the meantime he does a little research to find other ways to get rid of her. But he is surprised when she comes to him and asks for a divorce.  Everything changes then.


We also go over an incredibly similar case that took place five years before this one, with the body dump being in the same location.
