  1. They left a big part out of this story. Investigators previously had used Ancestry DNA to identify a suspect who had nothing to do with this case at all: https://www.nola.com/news/article_d58a3d17-c89b-543f-8365-a2619719f6f0.html 48 Hours did a story on this a few years ago.
  2. I do not remember Alicia's original episode. How long had she and Tim been together? What was their story? Personally, I saw him as being very controlling, and prior to her losing all that weight, she probably was okay with letting him make all her decisions. He justified it by saying he was being protective of her, and I think she liked that too, as she did not have to do anything in life but eat. I agree that he probably would prefer she stay overweight so he can continue to control her (I am assuming he also has a thing for overweight women).
  3. I totally agree. It is not fair or accurate to compare Big Cat Rescue to these roadside zoos. I have visited BCR and found it to be well run. The enclosures are very spacious and the cats are well fed and taken care of. Of course it would be better if these cats could be in the wild, but that is not possible...
  4. It actually is much stronger than it looks...
  5. When I visited Big Cat Rescue, I actually took the feeding tour (it was first thing in the morning before it got too hot). Though they may feed some that way, I did not see any of them fed with meat on sticks. The enclosures have these extensions with gates at both ends. The feeder puts the meat at one end of the extension, closes the gate, and then opens the other gate to let the cat in to eat.
  6. I will preface this comment by saying I think Carole Baskin is totally crazy, clearly takes advantage of her volunteers, has a questionable past, and may very well have had something to do with her husband’s disappearance/death. However, Big Cat Rescue is actually a very good animal sanctuary, and takes in big cats who have been in captivity in circuses and roadside zoos, or were "pets" that people could no longer handle. Once they have been in captivity and can't go back to the wild, they really have nowhere else to go. I have actually been there once, and their enclosures are quite spacious and well kept, and the volunteers do seem happy to be there. Also, they do not do any breeding, and as there are no cubs, there is no cub petting or other human contact/interaction with the cats. Their tours are really quite educational. They also have a whole separate building with a kitten nursery and cat adoptions!. Obviously it would be better if these cats were in the wild, but sadly that is not possible...
  7. I could be wrong, but I had assumed that Dr. Emma was a private physician, at least for the patients she sees at her London office. It is in a very nice area with a lot of private practices.
  8. When I saw this I had the same question - how long was it in there, and wouldn't the towel have dried out before they found it (assuming it had been in there for a while)? And why wrap it in a wet towel in the first place???
  9. They said the gun was found in the car wrapped in a wet towel, which I thought was odd. Explains the rust though...
  10. She writes the same way she talks.
  11. And his original sentence was only ten years, so he had almost served the entire time....I hope they will eventually track down the real killer so he can be fully exonerated.
  12. What was the twist? I watched the first two episodes at once, so they kind of ran together for me...
  13. Correct me if I am wrong, but I do not recall anyone ever mentioning weight loss surgery as an actual goal for Joyce. Not her, not Dr. Now, not anyone... They referenced the "program" multiple times, but never surgery. Maybe they knew from the beginning that it would never happen.
  14. Based on a number of recent cases, it is dangerous even if you are married...
