This whole legal battle with this woman, Anna Ayala, is starting to turn into a nail biter. With that 100K dollar reward still outstanding, i'm sure the finger will be pointing a certain direction very soon.

Argh! This thread needs a warning label! I read this whole thread at once and I almost groaned to death! My punishment for missing a week.

They discovered the digit belonged to one of her husbands friends.

Apparently he fingered them.
