jenkait March 29, 2015 Share March 29, 2015 I was excited to see that this episode was set on the Oregon coast, since I've spent a lot of time there and it's so beautiful. I find that 48 Hours has the most amazing camera work, panning over landscapes, etc. but it was surprisingly lacking in this episode? I guess Waldport doesn't have the best beaches but they could've done a more, I was disappointed! I knew right away I'd seen this story before, on an ID show. Very sad, and what a desperate lifestyle he made his family lead, and I don't see how Mary Jane put up with it, liiving in a warehouse, having to leave her belongings behind, etc? And then murdering his entire family, just incomprehensible. I felt so bad for the family members, and the poor babysitter/Starbucks co-worker who identified the bodies of two of the children, she was clearly so devastated. As for Michael Finkel? I think less of him for befriending the murderer than I do for faking his news story. The movie sounds lame. It might've been better if the ending was that it was an innocent man. I can't believe he's still friends with him, "casual" or not! Maybe they deserve each other. Maureen Maher looked so different in this episode, I swear I hardly recognized her in some of the interviewing shots. They seemed to have softened up her look a lot. She wasn't even wearing any leather! 2 Link to comment
