CraftyHazel April 16, 2022 Share April 16, 2022 You know, if Askey had a drop of humility or humanity in her, she would admit that she was duped by Pam herself, or blinded by her own ambition, or hell, just that she made a mistake. She’d offer an apology to Russ, and the people who despise her might just despise her a tiny bit less. But nope, she doubles down and can’t admit that Russ was and is innocent. I don’t think she’s much better than Pam, honestly. I actually don’t blame Russ for not being ready to accept Betsy’s mother and daughters back into his life. He and Betsy were married over ten years…by then, they all should have had an idea of what kind of man he was or wasn’t. I understand he wasn’t the ideal man, but as far as murder goes, I’m sorry, I may just be too trusting but I’d have to have a lot of hard core, honest-to-goodness proof that my dad or son-in-law had killed someone, not just the half-assed theories proposed by Askey. Mariah at least was still a kid (well, a teenager) when Russ went to trial, but Betsy’s mom didn’t believe in Russ’s innocence until Pam was charged. I remember the first time I saw this case covered on Dateline, I didn’t think Russ was guilty. The receipts, the timeline, the alibi witnesses, and all just convinced me. It’s amazing to me how many twists and turns this story took. 21 Link to comment
