Nancy Salem rushes home becuase she thinks her daughter Shafaa has been kidnapped by her violent, estranged husband (which she has been), but stops to go get the luggage out of the trunk of her friend's car first.

Tom Dixon, who possibly may have been responsible for the disappearance and murder of Gary Simmons, visits a junkyard and asks for them to get rid of his car. After being told that they can only flatten his car, Dixon asks for advice on how to completely get rid of it. Without hesitation and without displaying any suspicion whatsoever, the junkyard guy simply says: "Put a brick on the accelerator and drive it straight into the Missouri river!".

What the...

After all the atrocious lies and deceit Jack Lutter put his wives through, I was absolutely astonished that NONE of them made a move to turn him into the authorities. I seem to recall his wife Caroline making some comment about how his excuse for his month-long absence was that he was held in a Cuban prison and managed to gain release (which she did admit that she didn't believe at all). Then, when he finally comes back, and after she confronts him, and after he ADMITS to what he's actually been doing, she allows him to spend the weekend with her!

To each her own, but if the man I was married to turned out to be asinine and deceitful enough to commit such an act as that, there isn't a way in all hell he would be wiling his hours away with me over a weekend.

Yeah, unfortunately, I think the segment addressed the fact that a lot of these women came from male-dominated cultures and seemed to be raised with the mindset of always staying devoted to your husband, no matter what, even if he was the most deceitful liar imaginable. I have no doubt that Lutter probably took that into consideration when selecting his victims.

Just noticed that in the segment about Dan Marino and his home improvement scams, they show a newspaper ad his crew used to advertise his services and their contact number has the phoney 555 prefix! Of course, I'm sure UM probably recreated that newspaper ad from scratch and wanted to avoid using a real phone #, but it just seems amusingly appropriate that a group of con artists would be using a 555 number.

I can't remember if I posted on this thread already and I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this moment yet, but...

I always crack up at the same part of the Judy Olive segment. There is a reenactment of Judy meeting up with Ulysses Roberson after they have been apart for some time and she has given birth to his son. She introduces the baby as "Alexander". Ulysses looks at the baby and says "Alexander?...No, I don't think so...we'll call him...Salaam!" The actor's delivery here is just so nonchalant and he continues on like it's no huge thing that he just renamed the kid who he was meeting for the first time.

Did anyone else think that was wild? I mean, WTF?!?! Is that how it actually went down?

I don't mean to sound like a jerk but I've mentioned this before on the forum. It is a reenactment. The emotions, voice inflection, etc are not those of the real people. Perhaps the junkyard he visited in real life had a reputation because the guy running it was not , shall we say, "salt of the earth".

Oh, I realize that, but half the "WTF" moments in this thread are due to the reenactments and not the facts of the actual cases themselves. I just found it strange that they could make a scene with someone casually saying a line of dialogue like that and no one thought it looked silly or unbelievable.

Its been years so I don't remember specific names from any of the cases.....

I remember a case where a woman had been abducted by I believe her boyfriend who she had either already broken up with or had been attempting to end a relationship with...he went to excruciating lengths to abduct her and then make sure she could not get away for several days...then all of a sudden she asks him to use the bathroom at a restaurant when they're sitting there eating, the bathroom is behind him and she just gets up and walks out and leaves just like that...you'd figure after all that he'd at least follow her back there.

Another one which to this day drives me crazy was this case of this couple just being haunted by an apparent tormenter in and around their home...the entire thing started when the wife was knocked unconscious by a man who had come into the house one day asking to make a phone call, it then escalated to wierd notes and noises at all hours of the night in and outside the house...after months of this they had about 10 different people in and outside the house one night watching what was going on yet somehow this supposed person managed to still smash the side of the house making everyone jump out of their seats...I believed the 3 or 4 times I saw the episode that either the husband or someone in the family was behind it in some way and that the initial incident was likely just a coincidence and probably unrelated.

I remember the first case you wrote of. That was definitely a WTF. The second case you wrote of is The Wackers. It's been WIDELY discussed on here (emphasis mine...lol). If you'd like to read about any of the specifics, just do a search...it's all over the place on here. Some of the arguments are fairly entertaining. Personally...I have no opinion on the matter. I wasn't there. Although I do concur that there are a LARGE amount of WTF moments and things that don't necessarily add up in that case...

I love this thread and want to revive it! I just saw the Johnny Lee Wilson segment again, and when they mentioned the billboard proclaiming his innocence, then RS says that the billboard was "fire bombed" by an unknown party! What on Earth? I've never heard of anyone doing that to a billboard before! Maybe vandalizing it, but damn that was surprising.

Okay, in the Tony Miller 150th solve case, is it just me or does the actor in the re-enactment who plays Joseph Clark, the criminal who confessed to the robbery, look like a white guy wearing blackface makeup?!

Anything that Chad Noe or his relatives said during the Wendy Camp segment was a WTF moment. From Ida saying Wendy was just bitchin the whole time to Chad saying he admitted to the murders in a drunken stupor. WTF!?
