Totally agree. Jim Fontes rules. I think that segment definitely has one of the best updates in all of UM. The boys just look so full of life and happy.

Barbara Petrofski (sorry I butchered the spelling). This woman has been through it all. Her fiance had her arrested, she miscarried, he had her shot and she became paralyzed...yet she has such a positive attitude about not giving up and going on. I love the end of the segment when it shows her working with kids, getting married to her doctor, and walking with a new technology. She deserves all the happiness she can get. She was also very frank in talking about how much she cared for her fiance all those years before. I felt so much empathy for her.

Another one to add, as I'm reminded by Meg's avatar, Barbara Rondeau. She was so devoted to Tom and just generally seemed to be a caring person. It was so sad to see her have to come to terms with him never coming back, and she also pretty much accepted that it was him they had found but she still had a bit of hope it wasn't. I've seen some people online give her flack for how she called Tom her ''lover, father, guide'' but I think she was just really trying to hammer home how much she loved him and how much he meant to her.

Denise Horvath, who went searching for her missing son and even went to dangerous areas to find him. She kind of reminded me of Rose Hoffman and Susan Billig.

My girl Bonnie Wilder! Obviously what she did was wrong, but you have to admire her creativity and ability to disappear (even though she was enormous! ). She had everything so thought out, right down to the fact that if she ever was caught, she'd most likely get let off the hook anyway. Bonnie is definitely my fave UM villain!!!!

Yes, I liked her too. I could really identify with her. I never thought her description of Tom was strange either--I thought it was beautiful and totally got what she meant.

Also, Wishful, I am in agreement with you on Denise Williams, whom you posted a few pages back. I know that thread comes up every once in a while and some of Randall Utterback's friends and relations claim she wasn't what she seemed in the interview, but I don't know how close that is to the truth. She seemed pretty down-to-earth and totally likeable to me.

I should also make mention Susan Harrison's two sons, Nick and Jon, who seemed very nice and incredibly mature in their UM interviews. Last year, I read the book about the case from Susan's sister and they both sounded like very loving sons who never stopped supporting their mother even when she was trapped in an abusive relationship. Since Jim Harrison is now dead, it's shame they never really got justice for their mother.

He had guts to do that. That was such a dangerous mission. I would have gone into hiding after that.



....Yes.

I liked Katherine Scott from the Henderson, NV bank robbery segment. Not only was she great with a quote, but it took a lot of courage for her to snap that picture while in fear of being shot at. I thought she was courageous, helpful, funny and likable.

Crawford Wheeler (the lead detective from the Tracy Wofford-Bunn story). He spoke with a very lilting, empathetic manner during his whole interview, as though deeply saddened by the whole thing, yet optimistic that justice would come someday.

I agree with you on Crawford Wheeler.

I liked Curtis Heck. I thought his reactions to Kenneth Ingy's shenanigans were really level-headed. Kenny was drunk, harrassing the bar maid, calling her tramp, starting fights and what not. Curtis got the better of him in the fight, but instead of going farther and beating him to a pulp, he told him to just walk out the front door. I think a lot of guys in that situation would have taken advantage and beat the living snot out of him, but he tried to diffuse the problem. Granted, I bet Curtis probably wishes he never went to Kenneth's house that night, but next to Kenneth, Curtis comes off looking really good.

I thought that Kenneth Ingy segment was total filler. If that's the closest thing they have to a suspicious death in North Dakota, it must be even more of a low-crime state that I thought it was. There was no mystery at all. I think UM was short on cases that week, or maybe they just wanted to represent ND.

I really liked Eleanor Farber's daughter-in-law. She was present when John Burns committed the murder and was fully prepared to grab a shotgun to defend her MIL; she just wasn't able to grab it in time.

I liked him, too. It was obvious that he was working very hard on that case.

I liked Matthew Gibson, Poloma Gibson's older brother. If you recall, Poloma was abducted from her father Paul by her mother Melody Martin in 1989. He seemed like such an intelligent, articulate young man, and one who had to develop an immense amount of emotional fortitude very quickly in response to something he had absolutely no control over. I just wanted to hug him.

Fortunately, Poloma was reunited with the rest of her family very quickly and appears to have a good relationship with both parents today, which I think is great.

I liked Tom Sawyer. Not only was he great with the quotes (anybody that can say "no-no" twice in one sentence gets a thumbs-up in my book), but by all accounts, he just seemed like a real, genuinely nice and positive person. I also liked that one goofy face he made in one of the pictures at the beginning of his piece. I was saddened to learn he died several years ago, but at least he now has the chance to explore Heaven a lot more in-depth.
