I'm still not sure anyone outside the family (or maybe even
inside the family) has got an accurate picture of what happened.

The part that disturbs me is that the husband (if you can call him
that, since he's already had children with another woman) has a great
deal of personal relief from her death. It takes a great deal of
responsibility away from him. And he can get on with his new life
with this other woman.

So, why would he care that the parents wanted to preserve her life?
Why not just divorce her and let her parents manage the situation,
since that's what they wanted to do, anyway? I'm wondering what the
financial arrangements were in the event of her death. That would
likely be altered (and not in his favor) if he divorced her.

I could be wrong, of course. But as you said, there was so much
distortion of the issue that I can't feel good about it. I'd have to
know a lot more than I think was ever disclosed before I could put my
suspicions to rest.
