A sister’s courtroom perspective and other thoughts

Posted in By Linda, The MacNeill Story on October 9th, 2012 by admin – 8 Comments

April 11, 2007 marks the beginning of this madness and the tragic end of my sister’s life. It has been a long battle to get to this courtroom. It seems inconceivable that the days have finally arrived, yet years overdue.

It has been very difficult for me to listen to a description of Michele’s final days.  I found myself having to go somewhere else in my mind to withstand the aching inside as the tragic details are unraveled.  I would hear the proceedings, but would have to, at times, take my mind back to our innocent childhood days as sisters.   I would reflect back upon some good memories I could recall like playing with our dog Daisy’s puppies, pulling wagons, riding bikes, piling on the couch with mom to watch our favorite tv shows, sucking big fresh dill pickles from the grocery store deli for a dime, getting ready for school together and so many other special times. It got me through the day to relive these warm calm happy feelings that we felt in our carefree days as children; confident that’s what Michele was feeling now. read more »

Posted in The MacNeill Story on October 2nd, 2012 by admin – 1 Comment

Martin MacNeill has been booked for felony murder for his wife’s death, which police have been investigating for over five years.

The arrest comes years after a coroner originally ruled his wife, Michelle, died of natural causes after drowning in her bathtub. Their daughters did not believe this, and they led the charge to have their father arrested. “He destroyed our family,” Alexis Somers told Jim Moret on Jane Velez-Mitchell.

For more on this story, tune in to Jane Velez-Mitchell weeknights at 7 p.m. ET on HLN.

Defensve attorney says Martin MacNeill has done ‘bad things’ but he didn’t kill his wife.

Martin Joseph MacNeill’s story is one of contradictions.

At the time he was telling Veterans Affairs officials he was so debilitated by mental health issues that he could not hold a job or get an education, he was working as a doctor and also had a law degree.

The day he went to an LDS temple with his family to be bound for eternity, he was having an affair.

The words, spoken as her mother was recovering at home from a facelift surgery, still haunt Alexis Somers.

“In case anything happens to me,” Michele MacNeill, 50, told her daughter, “make sure it wasn’t your dad.”

Days later, Michele, a homemaker, was found lifeless by another daughter, Ada, then 6, in a bathtub in their upscale Pleasant Grove, Utah, home.

When the medical examiner concluded that her April 2007 death was due to natural causes, local police never opened a criminal investigation. Horrified, older daughters Alexis, 29, and Rachel, 32, frantically insisted to anyone who would listen that their mother’s suspicions rang true and that their father, a prominent doctor-lawyer, should be investigated. read more »

Stop Martin Stop Evil

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.
Albert Einstein

He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I found these quotes on the subject of evil and evil people.  It made me ponder and I thought to myself, how true.  I love the insight of these brilliant men in our history.  I do know however that fear, intimidation, control and other things paralyze people at times making it so they “don’t do anything about it”  or others for whatever reason,  just “accept” it.  I have been guilty of this as well.  It could be because the person has threatened you or you may feel ashamed or scared.  Whatever the reason may be, fear, guilt, shame, etc…I believe the agony continues inside you because of this evil which is not a very happy peaceful way to live.  It needs to be stopped.  If you have any information or know something I urge you to come forth.  If for nothing else for your own peace of mind.  You can remain anonymous  if you wish.  I want you to know that sometimes  something small that you may think is nothing leads to a piece of a bigger puzzle.  Anything is appreciated.  Please respond to this blog if you know something.  We need to stop evil.  We need to break the silence.  It is hard to be brave, but in the long run it will set you free.

Thank-you, Linda
