    I don't know how macabre it can look like, or maybe I'm just evil...
    But beyond the tragedy, the scene looked funny to me...

    Terrible when things like this happen. My cousin's fiancé was killed in a workplace accident the day after we received our wedding invitation. Had a box fall on him and hit him in the head, which caused a brain hemorrhage, he died a few hours after.

    Pretty sad. I read somewhere that the authorities didn't suspect foul play, but that they were looking into it.

    I hope the guy didn't do it. That would just suck....let alone what happened to her.

    I know it says she was only 4'11", but a 3' wave? Really? :scratch:

    I got caught in a wave that was over my head once when I was about her size, and I just dug my heels in. :shrug:

    Bizarre.

    You probably weigh a little bit more than a 4'11" woman. Not surprising it could knock her off balance and drag her out.

    I was 10, maybe 11 at the time, so I may have been shorter... But I was around 95-100lbs.

    Now though, I'm 5'6", and 170lbs. I need to hit the gym one of these days.

    Suspicious. To me.

    He could have drowned her then pushed her body to sea. :scratch:


    But if not that sucks. For the girl and HER family.

    Then they would have found marks on her throat would they not?

    yeah, the guy just seemed a bit too calm when he was talking. I mean of course he could be in shock, but he was just talking about the whole thing like it wasn't really a big deal. Either way it sucks that something like that happened.

    I don't think you can really interpret a guy's reaction based on his words. To an extent. Unless there's some audio clip file to listen to him which I blatantly ignored because I'm tired..:squint:

    I just can't believe the guy did anything harmful to her on purpose. I honestly believe that he just used poor judgement regarding the weather conditions, and underestimated the capability of sneaker waves.

    I know firsthand, EXACTLY what this dude had to go through, in order to bring her from the Philippines to the USA. I went through the same process myself, when I brought my wife here from the Philippines several years ago.

    Obtaining a fiancée visa is an incredibly difficult thing to do, and takes many months (between 6 and 18) to obtain. The USCIS (United States Citizenship & Immigration Services) really puts people through hell with their endless lists of requirements, forms, and documentation. A man has to compile an ungodly amount of materials, photographs, tax forms, proof of employment, etc... submit it to the embassy, then hope & pray it gets approved. (And that's just the beginning. Suffice it to say, there's way more involved than anyone would care to read about here).

    My point is, I can't believe a man would go through all of that, just to kill her 3 days after she finally gets here. Nope. I don't think so. :noplease:

    There's a lot of hatred and suspicion of the guy circulating throughout the Internet now, and I do believe he needs to do a better job explaining himself and defending himself. He's not helping anything with the small amount of info that's been reported so far.

    But if he's as innocent as I believe he is, he surely doesn't care anymore. Nothing in the future could be any worse for him than what's already happened now.

    I can't stop thinking about everyone involved. Especially her family. The whole thing is just tragic beyond words.

    :pray:
