Regardless of anyone's opinion on the case, I have to laugh at how easy it is to tell the folks on this board that do not suffer from a bad back lol. All I can say is it is one of those things you just don't get unless you have experienced it. I'll comment more on the case itself later. Way past my bed time right now

This article was from 2002 and was the most recent thing I could find with regards to Anderson's murder. I'm thinking that the cops suspect Anderson's wife now.

Quote:
On the night of the killing, Anderson came home with his wife, Beth, and two children, police said. As he carried his 5-year-old son to bed, his wife apparently remained in the car with the couple's 1-year-old to collect some items inside. She told police she heard gunshots and ran to a neighbor's home for help. "It's been difficult for us to clarify what happened because [Anderson's wife] has not allowed us to interview her again," Stehr said. Police originally thought Anderson walked in on a burglary, but that theory is changing. In the late 1990s, a tip prompted a yearlong investigation by two detectives. No one was arrested at that time in connection with the killing. "There were indications that the murder was by someone close to the victim," Stehr said, though he declined to elaborate.
I've always been suspicious of the wife's story to begin with. I used to believe, due to the close proximity to the Dan Montecalvo case, that Suzan Brown could've been involved in Anderson's murder, but after watching the more recent ID show about Montecalvo's case, there's no doubt in my mind that Montecalvo is guilty, and that his wife's murder is totally unrelated to Anderson's. Who stays inside the car while you just pulled up to the house after midnight? Let's say she did have a bad back and that she didn't want to leave the younger son out in the car alone. As soon as she hears pops, which she initially thought was a car backfiring, she goes into the house by herself, leaving her younger son out in the car alone. Then when she finds Anderson, she runs out and gets her other son out of the car and goes to a neighbor's house. So her back wasn't bad enough to where she couldn't carry the younger son. And she also left her older son in the house, possibly with the murderer still inside. Why would you do this unless she knew that the older son was not going to be harmed. Which leaves no room for her innocence, IMO.

The wife's back probably made it painful but not impossible to run/move quickly. I see no suspicion based solely on the back angle.

So obvious the wife was involved-she just happens to have a bad back so doesn't go into the house, she doesn't see or hear anybody exiting the house & then refuses to help the investigation in any way after her initial statement that evening-does this strike anybody as the actions of a grieving wife wanting to find those responsible? Disgusting she did that with her kids there with them. The staged burglary means whoever was there was there purely to kill-her lover, a hitman she hired?

Yes definitely suspicious. Has there been any recent news?

Wife hiring a hitman or a lover to kill Charlie sounds correct.

I think that's the most likely scenario.

I doubt the wife would hire a hitman with her child being in the house with him. I think maybe somebody was looking for something and Anderson walked in and surprised them. Creepy case.

People do, it would actually make the police suspect her less. That he was allowed to put the kid to bed & exit the room before being executed speaks volumes. Looking for what? Nothing was taken, jewellery & other high value goods were left in plain sight, while the drawers had been rummaged through in an unconvincing way-it was obviously a lame attempt to make it look like a burglary gone wrong. The wife after making her statement has refused to assist the police in any way & refused to appear in the segment, unless the police accused her of murdering him on that night which is unlikely then what reason would she have for not assisting if she wasn't involved?

Unless Anderson had an enemy related to his work with law enforcement, the wife is the only viable option, IMO. An unrelated 3rd party who was simply there to burglarize the house would have done so at a more opportune time (not around midnight), and I doubt they would have murdered him within seconds of him entering the house.

BUMP

I've always wondered why the anonymous phone call to the police was played up so much in the segment. The caller never gave any viable information (at least not mentioned in the segment) and he promised to call back but never did. The police wanted to find the caller. I wonder if he dropped a name or nugget about the case not mentioned in the segment which made the police believe that he did in fact have information about the murder.

Here is an article from 12 years ago (2007). Seems Anderson's widow has since remarried and divorced since the murder:

i'm not convinced the wife did it....however it's just as possible she did do it. Without more information...I couldn't find too much online that wasn't covered on the show...it's hard to say which way it could go.

From that article:

Asked if she was frustrated with the case, Beth Anderson paused.

"I'm frustrated that my husband is not here with me to raise his

children," she said.


Does anyone else find this response odd? I'd imagine if you lost your partner you would talk about how much you miss them; how much they meant to you; how much you cared and loved them etc..

I'm sure she has been under surveillance over the years and mustn't have made mistakes or she would have been arrested by now.
