MissFit,

For some reason, I had never thought of it as being a frame up before.

Yeah, Christy is dumber than a box of rocks, but I can see her stealing the contents of Mafuz's ashtray to dump by the tree to make it look like he stood there smoking.

Todd's friend posted earlier that the tree was on one side of the house and the bedroom was on the opposite side. And the dog was supposed to be tied up in back. If Mafuz was never there, but just his cigarette butts were dumped, that would explain why the dog was never barking to alert Todd to the danger.

It would also explain the 10 mile barefoot walk. It never happened. Even if there was a witness who saw him, how well did the witness know Mafuz? Was he able to see that he was barefoot in the dark? Is he 100% sure that it was even Mafuz? Look how many eye witnesses have been on UM that have swore up and down that they saw a person, when later it was found to have been impossible (lil miss comes to mind).

So that's why there was clean up of the scene, but the body was left behind. She couldn't remove the body by herself, but she could get rid of the materials she used to clean up the murder scene.

Are the cigarette butts the only "proof" that Mafuz was ever at Tim's house? Did they get his fingerprints on the door or anything? I really need to see thing segment again...

I always thought the walking 10 miles barefoot was a bunch of hogwash. I have always thought that Christie knew alot more then what she said. I think there is a very good chance she was some way involved with Todd's death.

For me, the whole point of Mahfuz (am I spelling this correctly?) killing Todd would be to get Christie back. But if he was really in a jealous rage, I think she would have been harmed too - either killed, injured, or kidnapped. I really doubt that she would have just been left behind when Mahfuz fled.

I think Todd's parents know something's up with her, and that's why they didn't want her anywhere near the funeral. There's much more to this story.

Actually I disagree, I think Mafous was the one that killed Todd. He was there. His brand of cigarettes were scattered all over the outside of the house as he had been chain smoking and clearly was nervous pacing outside before going into the house and attacking Todd. Mafous clearly was a jilted lover. Christy dumped him to go back to Todd and Mafous through some sort of misguided grudge killed Todd. Todd was his target because he was angry at Todd, he hated Todd, it was a personal killing. He blamed Todd for 'taking away' Christie from him.

I do however believe that Mafous did threaten Christie. He probably told her that it was her word against his and that if they got in trouble that Mafus would tell the cops that Christie killed Todd and that he just helped her clean it up. He probably told her that the cops would view both of them guilty of murder because they both were there. To be honest Christie does not exactly seem to be the smartest chip off the block and probably bought Mafus's bull, hook, line and sinker. Mafus is still wanted for murder in Indiana. My guess is he will probably never be caught. He probably does not even gives it a 2nd thought. He probably thinks because so many years have passed that the cops are not looking for him anymore and that he will not be caught. He probably did travel back to Bangladesh at least initially but it would not surprise me if he is back here. His family is probably helping him.

He'll never be caught if he's in Bangladesh. I doubt someone from Small Town, Indiana is going to search for him there. But if he fled, then what would Christie have to fear? I mean, what's Mahfuz going to do to her now? I think she's a heck of a lot more guilty, because she could have come forward with information and she hasn't.

Maybe Mahfuz being out there still is enough to scare her? I don't know. If he had nothing to do with it, then why would he flee before the police even had a chance to speak to him to rule him out as a suspect?

I always got the impression that Todd's family was not too happy that Todd was serious with Christie at such a young age and maybe were not too fond of Christie as I am sure they (Todd's parents) knew she was seeing another guy.

How could they ban her from the funeral? Ask her not to come? Have a guard at the door?

As for Christie's involvement....I just don't see it. But it has been a while since I have seen the episode.

I think the family just didn't like her and since it was Christie's ex who killed Todd they didn't like her more. I really felt sorry for her. I really don't think she was involved at all.

I've always been torn on this case. It's probably a little bit of both sides being right and wrong. Christie might not be totally honest, although it could've been out of being afraid of Mafous (personally I think he's guilty) or something else the segment left out that we don't know about her. Maybe she was ashamed of being in a love triangle or something, people usually have reasons for feeling a certain way.

I have to be honest, and I hope this doesn't offend anyone, but... Todd's dad came across as kind of a jerk to me. Not mean per se, but he seemed more concerned with proving Christie wrong than with directly caring about Todd. Then again, the segment probably doesn't show everyone's full interviews. It could be that he didn't like her because she cheated on Todd with Mafous (initially)... especially since he was really in love with her from how the segment portrayed it.

I do think it's possible she helped him clean up the crime scene out of being fearful of what he'd do to her (I do think Todd's dad is right about Mafous not being able to move Todd by himself and get back home in the time frame)

I agree. I don't think she planned Todd's murder or anything like that, but Huck (sic) seemed like a few fries short of a happy meal. I think he convinced her to help him initially by scaring the crap out of her, threatening her family and/or convincing her that she would be blamed for the crime.

If Huck was back in the US now it wouldn't surprise me. If he is, maybe Christi is still scared s***less of him. Who knows.

I agree. The dad is obviously hurting as his son was murdered but he seemed to be placing a lot of anger and energy towards Christie and I am not sure that it was justified.

I do wonder a lot about how Todd's family feels about Christie today.

But that begs the question, "Why didn't they like her?" Was it that she was not too intelligent? Or that they found some of her mannerisms annoying? Or maybe they didn't like her because she was conniving, manipulative, and dating two guys at the same for self-serving reasons and probably cuddling up to one now and the other depending on which one she could gain more from at the time?

In these cases, usually when the parents don't like the bf or gf very much, it is because they are shady individuals, not because they have a gap between their front teeth.

As for how Todd's dad comes off, doesn't seem to like Christie, and is very angry and acts like he is more out to get Christie than the "real" killer, check out any previous UM segment where parents suspected the ex-bf/gf or ex-spouse of either committing the murder or knowing more about it than they claim. Do they seem any angrier our any more out to get the ex? A natural reaction, I would say.

1. I think it has to do with Christines promiscuity or potential promiscuity. I think the parents felt she was "trash"

2. The fact that Mafuz Huck was here boyfriend probably made her unpopular amongst a lot of people.

Course, none of that means that she deserves to spend time in jail if she is innocent.

Christine's story does not make sense. She abbetted in this crime somehow.

Actually, according to the segment, Christie started dating Mafous after she and Todd had broken up and she was away at college. Todd wanted to marry her right out of high school and she said she wasn't ready at that age. She rekindled her romance with Todd towards the end of her relationship with Mafous so it was Mafous she was actually cheating on. Not the other way around.

I don't think she had anything to do with the murder other than giving Mafous a ride home after he probably threatened her. That may be why she refused to take a polygraph test.

I agree that Todd's dad came across like a jerk in the segment. But I guess that can be expected when a parent loses a child. His anger may stem from the fact that he probably thinks Christie knows where Mafous is hiding out or where he went immediately after the murder and she isn't saying anything. But that's just a guess.
