Assuming this isn't a joke...

Are you saying you were a neighbor of the Geris and you know Stephen did it?

If so, you should contact the police. Even anonymously. This family deserves closure.

I expect Stephen Geri to respond by writing more material for his website about how great he is.

I hope the cops find something to charge him (and wipe the smugness off his face) with.

The neighbor that can prove it moved in the middle of the night a week after the murder. They are still afraid they can be found by him. The sheriff knows all our family knows.

I don’t want to say to much about the settlement but he didn’t get a dime. Two previous wives he had that he “saved” were to testify against him. One tried to kill herself with a knife, and they both got cut up. The second a tv fell into the tub and a by a miracle unplugged before it went in. That occurred in New York. That’s why there was a settlement. There’s so much more but people are still scared to say more publicly, the sheriff knows it.

It sounds like they are re-opening this case. What are your thoughts on it?

Itís great, itís pretty much the first thought on valentines. Seeing my Facebook feed flooded with local news announcing it was being reopened and asking for anyone that has info to contact them was great.

Only thing is witness wise I donít see that person getting over the fear to do so. We were talking today and the only thing that would is letting him know someone saw him and who it was. That would be it, and thatís not happening. Hope thereís something they found in the house to connect him that wasnít able to years ago. Not sure what that could be.

You really have to wonder what Stephen's current wife thinks about all of this.

She must be very gullible or money took her mind away from it, probably both. I can garuntee she hasn’t heard anything close to the truth or knows about the two before Marilu that managed to survive. I’d think she’s safe due to the fact he’s barely got away with one murder and has two more that managed to look like a suicide attempt and an accident.

Would you think after all this time Stephen would try to come after any witnesses himself (or have persons come after them) ??

With as smug and self-assured as he came off in the segment, I would like to think after all this time, some of that would give way to arrogance and perhaps such a thought wouldn't even enter his mind.

Whoa, so he tried to do in two women prior to Marilu? That really is something.

Just so you know, everyone on here (except one person) believes he is guilty as sin. Did you watch the segment when it first ran or catch it recently on Amazon Prime?

Recent articles on the case indicate she was shot in the back 3 times and once in the side. Her sister made a odd comment at a recent press conference, saying, "My sister knew who killed her. My sister would never have opened the door for someone she didn't know and I don't believe for one minute my sister was taken by someone at the front door." I thought the UM segment implied that she was found dead away from the front door of their residence. This would indicate someone she knew sneaking up behind her and shooting her. If she was found near the front door, I could envision a scenario where someone knocked on the door and was let in by her before they shot and killed her. Anyway, this statement by the sister makes Stephen's claims of 25-40 thousand dollars worth of jewelry missing seem very specious.

I still contend that Stephen hired someone to kill Marilu. And if what the sister says is true, it would have been someone known to her.

I never could rectify this to my own satisfaction. During her UM interview, Marilu's mother said there was jewelry laid out on the dresser, thus it appeared whoever entered the residence didn't intend to steal things. In his UM interview, Stephen Geri claimed that there were several thousand dollars worth of "items" or "valuables" missing from the house.

Granted, there is a ton of reason to doubt Stephen Geri's statements, but I always thought this was one that would be somewhat easy for investigators to verify or refute. In other words, if he said on UM that there were items missing, I'm just guessing that there were, because it would look suspicious if he made this statement on UM, yet claimed previously that nothing of value was taken.

I think there was a 20 or so minute time gap in his alibi during which the PI alleged that Geri could have been covering up the crime himself. Any thoughts on that? I ask because it would be suggestive of him doing this alone.

I would imagine that the PI or her parents would have refuted this in the segment, although it's odd that in recent articles, nothing is ever mentioned about missing jewelry or valuables.

Stephen called his mother-in-law at 8:15 that morning, and asked her to go over and help prepare for the party. The mother then called Marilu's house and got no answer (which was odd, because she was supposed to be up prepping the house for the party). She went over to the house and saw the front door open (as per the re-enactment) and found Marilu dead in "the back of the house" (at 10:06).

Stephen says he left the house at 6:25 in the morning, and went to various places around town before calling Marilu at 7:30. From 7:30 to 10:06 he had an alibi. IMO, if he killed Marilu, he had to have done it between 6 and 7 in the morning. Which is an odd time to shoot someone 4 times, considering most people would've still been home at that time and would have heard the shots. I think when he called Marilu at 7:30 it was either to speak with the killer/s, or it was a check to see if Marilu was up yet so he could then call/signal the killers to kill her. I think he knew by 8:15, when he called his mother-in-law, that she was already dead. But I don't how he would've been able to kill her and/or dispose of evidence based off of everything known from the segment.

This is the street where Marilu was killed. Look at how close the homes are. Unless some sort of silencer was used on the weapons, I don't know how anyone in the neighborhood wouldn't have heard the shots and been able to pin point an approximate time of death.

Not sure if this has been posted or not but you can watch the full press conference here:

https://www.click2houston.com/news/2...ay-murder-case

Sounds like the family is really set on Stephen as the killer which (IMO) was obvious from the segment.

I agree, the thing which makes me believe Stephen hired someone to commit the murder, but did not do it himself is because the paramedics injected Marilu's heart with a medication in an attempt to revive her, a procedure which apparently made it impossible to determine her exact time of death. There's no way Stephen could have anticipated this would happen. If they had been able to determine that Marilu's time of death was before Stephen left the house that morning, then this would have destroyed his alibi, which is why the hired hit theory is more likely, IMO.
