Oh, god, yeah, that "Paula Zahn" episode was crazy. Six wives, and at least half of them were dead under mysterious circumstances. And he got freaking acquitted on the...fourth one's death, wasn't it? I felt for that poor woman's mom, when she was talking about how he'd kill again.
But yeah, his story sounded pretty fishy from the start. Seeing a stranger in the hall and yet he still has time to go get his gun? The guy doesn't automatically try and take him out the way he did his wife, or fight him, or something? And then that video where he was describing the shooting-that would've been a huge tipoff, too, especially with the way he was all, "BOOM! BOOM BOOM!". You could tell he was clearly trying to make himself out to be this big, tough, badass, and he was way more descriptive of the events of that night than I think many in that situation would be. Like, I think a lot of people, if they were doing a recreation of a traumatic event like that and explaining it to the detectives, would probably be more like, "It all happened so fast, I just remember chasing them one minute and then the next, they were on the ground" or something to that effect.
Either that, or they might be too emotional to even speak about it at all, or if they were able to remain composed enough to give a detailed account, they wouldn't try and dramatize it so much, the way this guy did.
But yeah, thank goodness he was eventually nabbed. Shame it had to take multiple wives dying in order for him to finally wind up in jail.
