Foul play is definitely suspected here and you know the spouse is the #1 suspect. I don't understand why the police did not interrogate her, unless they did?? There are a lot of red flags and she has a lot of explaining to do but I guess they are keeping that close to the vest. Or they just lack evidence. My heart goes out to his father. I pray for justice for him and his son.
