The reason I don't think he did it is the exact phrase a few posts above. Mark Nichols is a "dim bulb" - he always struck me that way - and I don't think he's smart enough to have pulled this off as well as the killer apparently did. She hasn't been found in over 30 years?
I always thought there was a chance she did run off. The segment referred to some emotional issues on Christy's part, and those are usually brushed aside in these threads if in fact they existed.

This guy may not have been the sharpest tool in the shed, sure. Boxing up all of her clothes and selling both their vehicles the same day though? Yeah, he definitely did it (though I feel it was done w/little to no planning on his part).

This link goes into more detail.

I find myself struggling with that sometimes too. Observing Mark's interview, he came across as probably one of the dumbest (to put it lightly) interviewees ever featured on the show. But there is literally nobody else with a motive to do away with his wife...other than a random evil stranger that just happened upon her at a convenient moment.

It's hard to accept but just because you're an idiot doesn't mean it's impossible to get away with something like this. Look at Richard Bockledge and Randall Utterback. Neither of them have ever struck me as being smart enough to get away with what they did but they have never been caught.

At the very least, there is some room for doubt although not a lot. He's definitely the most likely suspect. The suitcase thing is pretty damning; even if I pack a suitcase myself for myself, I would struggle to precisely detail all its contents if I'm asked on the fly.
I think even if Christi's remains were to be found today, a conviction is not 100 percent assured. Too much time has passed and while there's a lot of circumstantial evidence, not sure enough or any physical evidence would remain at this point to cinch his guilt.

The biggest advantage for our "dim bulb" Mark Nichols on this case is that we have very little accounting of Mark's movements immediately after Christi went missing. We know from the babysitter that she didn't see Christi come in the night they went out together. And we know Mark dropped off the kids and spent several hours alone the next day. Even for someone who isn't all that bright, he had plenty of time to dispose of her body and take care of things. You don't have to be a genius to dump evidence when you have time on your side.

Also, that 'aw shucks', dim bulb air he gave off could have been an act as well. We're judging him based on a short snippet of TV interview.

He might have came across as a "dim bulb", but dimwits who are abusers kill their spouses all the time. This is one of the UM cases that I'm surprised never went to a grand jury. Her blood was found in the trunk of Mark's car and she had no reason to suddenly run off and abandon her kids, since she was planning on leaving him and gaining custody. He didn't have to be smart, he was just lucky that Christi's remains have never been located and never had charges filed against him.

To me, this case has never been about whether he did it or didn't do it, it's obvious to me that he did it. The real point of this case to me is where is she and where did he dispose of her body. I did quite a bit of streetviewing in that area and it is a small town with a lot of farmland surrounding, so there are so many possibilities. Hopefully, someday she will be located.

Did the segment mention how much blood was in the trunk of his car. A small amount, while damning, isn't conclusive in court.

I personally think that it's highly possible he burned her body somewhere out in the rural areas around Gothenburg. People burn stuff all the time in rural areas, so he could have done it without much fear anyone would report it or catch him in the act. Once the act was done, a little time would make it very hard to identify what was left as human remains.

It's also possible he buried her. Someone digging a hole, again, is not an uncommon site in rural areas. If he was careful, he wouldn't have drawn any attention doing that either. The only concern in burying the remains is location. If the location of her burial was ever developed and/or used for agriculture in the future, she would most likely be found.

It was only a few drops found in trunk of car and in bedroom. Not enough to really show a major incident.

No doubt in my mind, Mark killed her.

What baffles me is why any woman would marry an idiot like that in the first place.

Yeah, Mark does not exactly come off as the brightest bulb out there. He is a 25 watt guy in a 200 watt world, that is for sure!

Great insight and information as usual with your blogs, Crystal Dawn. Did anyone ever talk to the grown up children about their mother?
It just seemed like she had no where to turn with the stacked against her without the real possibility of losing her kids.

As big as doofus as this a&* is he had the connections and the ability to cover his tracks and too clam up.
