On April 28, 2004, William McGuire disappeared from the apartment he shared with his wife and two sons in Woodbridge, New Jersey.  His wife, Melanie, claimed the couple had a violent argument that ended with 39-year old Bill storming out of the house, vowing never to return.  Melanie claimed Bill’s behavior had become erratic in recent weeks and claims to this day that Bill was an alcoholic with gambiling debts owed to shady characters.  On May 5, 2004, Kenneth Cole suitcase was picked up by fisherman in Chesapeake Bay near Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Inside were a man’s lower legs.  On May 11, 2004, a man’s head and upper torso in a matching suitcase were found on a beach by a bird watcher.   Finally, on May 16, 2004, a man’s lower torso was found in a third suitcase picked up by a boater in the Chesapeake Bay.  Virginia Beach investigators enlisted the media in their effort to identify the victim and a composite sketch led to the body being identified as Bill McGuire, which was confirmed by fingerprint examination.  Join Lisa O’Brien and Michael Carnahan on Tuesday, December 15, 2020, at 8:00 p.m. Central for Clear and Convincing Episode 27, State of New Jersey v. Melanie McGuire.  We’ll talk about the evidence linking McGuire to her husband’s disappearance and murder, including her purchase of a Taurus .38 revolver in Pennsylvania on April 26, 2004, the Kenneth Cole suitcases, a medical service blanket wrapped around Bill’s head when it was found and her admission to “moving” Bill’s car, which continued fragments of human sawdust, in Atlantic City days after Bill “disappeared.”  We are a live show and, as always, calls are welcome at (347) 989-1171.
