Hey guys, I noticed something on Charley Project that was not in the UM segment. Blood was found in Mark's trunk and the house. Mark claims it was menstrual blood (tests determined it was not) but not enough of it was present to prove Christy was dead. So he's never been charged. This makes me feel even more strongly that he did it.

This is just further proof that Mark Nichols may be the luckiest SOB in the history of "Unsolved Mysteries". If he had committed this murder just a few years later when forensic science and DNA testing was more advanced, I'm sure they may have found enough evidence to charge him. Alas, since it was 1987, he was able to have just enough luck in his favour to get away with it. It really hit me just how long this idiot has gotten away with murder and been able to go on living his life when I read an article about the case from a few years ago that mentioned that Mark is now a grandfather!

The blood found in his car makes it obvious to me what happened. It appears to me that Christi did in fact come back home with Mark that night, and the only reason the babysitter did not see Christi was probably because she was in a bad mood from fighting with Mark about their separation. I then think Mark's account of them arguing was correct but he failed to mention that it probably got physical and he killed her. Blood stains were found in their bedroom, BTW. I then think Mark took her body out to his car and kept it in the trunk overnight. Then he probably went back in and cleaned up the scene in the bedroom, got some sleep (how I'l never know). The next morning he dropped his kids off at a relatives home while he went to dispose of the body and clean up his car and/or tie up loose ends to cover up the crime. It seems like all this case needs is Christi's body to be found, and it's a slam dunk case IMO.

I wonder what the reason was for Mark's 2nd marriage ending in a divorce? He was probably beating her too.

There's a pretty noticeable trend among UM husbands who are under alot of scrutiny involving their wives' disappearances and it nearly always happens to be that while there is a helluva lot of hinky circumstances surrounding the disappearances, the absence of a body plus the suggestion of abandonment places these cases at a standstill/stalemante.

With all the apparent circumstantial evidence in this one especially, you have to believe strongly that the DA here didn't want to take the gamble and spend the money to try without having more(significant emphasis if there was blood found in the trunk). From my studies, DA's hate losses on their records and the trend is to not try cases that will look poor on their resume(as is the case with surgeons, who do not take on risky patients so not to impact their mortality/morbidity record). The best bet in circumstantial, potentially "up-in-the-air cases going to trail" is to get a young, brash and pardon my language, ballzy DA looking to make a splash and reopen some of these cases with hopes of getting themselves attention. Cold cases aren't impossible to solve and the advent and evolution in forensic testing has aided greatly, however alot of the time, unfortunately animal predation and weathering will have taken its toll after this length of time.

There is a laundry list of names that have appeared on UM that IMO, if under a different DA would've probably at least attempted to take these cases to a grand jury for indictment on the circumstantial evidence alone. That said, it's a tremendous and costly gamble and one would have to weigh all the evidence heavily and really make sure there's enough to beyond a reasonable doubt. UM doesn't necessarily tell the whole story on these cases, but boyohboy would I love to read the casefiles on some of these....

I am literally watching this segment again as I type this.


Yeeeeeeeeah, this guy did it. No doubt in my mind. He's guilty, and its a damn shame they don't have the proof.

Its amazing how many of these cases have such an obvious perp yet they are missing that one piece of evidence (usually a body) that keeps them from bringing them to justice. It is sickening.

I can't believe the blood in Mark's house and car isn't enough. Remember the Carolyn Killaby case? She was murdered by Dennis Smith; the case was shown on UM and Forensic Files. They got a conviction based off a spot of blood the size of a pinprick found on a wristwatch in Smith's truck. Yet they didn't need her body to prove murder; she's never been found.

Disappeared's facebook page just made a post about there being a lot of unidentified human remains in the U.S. (I think the number was 20,000). So it sounds like a lot of missing people are found, they're just not idenitifed. Charley Project updates do have a lot of "her remains were found in 1986, but not identified until March 2013" or something similar to that. I would hope that LE, etc would be familiar with the missing people in their area, so maybe a lot of perps travel some distance to dump the bodies. Then again, maybe they aren't famililar. That 911 operator in Cleveland had no idea who Amanda Berry was.

Yes. As far as Christi is concerned, I strongly believe she's no more than 30-50 miles from Gothenburg. I just hope she can be found someday.

i always felt that Mark committed the crime. He looks like a buffoon in his UM segment and you can SO tell he is lying. The fact that the blood found in his car was not of a menstrual cycle OBVIOUSLY means it has to be of her blood. The fact that he even stated it was his wife's blood, is like hello duh! did they use luminol to find the blood in the car?

This is another one that I had not seen until recently. Mark Nichols definitely ranks up there with Chad Noe and Paul Pollis as the most obviously guilty husbands in the history of Unsolved Mysteries. Mark seemed like one of the more uneducated and flat out dumb people ever profiled on UM. Hard to believe someone like that has gotten away with this for almost 30 years.

Even though blood was found and no body, that does not preclude law enforcement from moving forward with an arrest, but, it does make it difficult at trial.

I wonder what their grown adult kids think about this case?

I wonder what his adult kids think when they see him say "I'm not a violent person"

Bottom line I feel terrible for the children.

On another note I can't believe its been a year already since this thread was bumped. I remember posting that like it was yesterday.

I'm the same age as Christi's son and have even found him on social media, although I'd never dream in a million years of contacting him about his mother's disappearance, let alone about his father. I do wonder how Christi's absence was treated as he and his sister grew up, though.

The children in this case, along with the Wendy Camp case, probably were told their mother abandoned them or something along those lines. Pretty sad, actually.
