To me, the evidence — with one notable exception — seems far more flimsy than in the OJ Simpson case. Trace samples of blood in the home? How many times have you bled in your house over the last 4 years? If your wife had gone missing, and you knew from watching hundreds of tv shows who was usually investigated — wouldn't a normal person (geek) that otherwise had had no encounter with the law previously — buy a book or two on the subject? (admittedly, pre-patriot act, I'd have got mine from the library). If innocent, would you get annoyed at being trailed everywhere and start playing games with the cops? Since when did washing your car "frequently" become evidence of a crime?
Still... what did you do with the damn car seat, Hans?"
