Anytime, I read where a wife and mother has been murdered ninety-nine percent of the time,
it was the husband who commited the crime. A coward disguising themselves as a human being.
Suzanne Grattan's body was discovered in a duffel bag. Then her body was placed on the residential property, hidden inside a well.
George Grattan, 28, faces an open count of murder, kidnapping and tampering with evidence in the death of Suzanne Grattan, 29, an award-winning Deming High School journalism and English teacher. Her body was found on March 19 , George Grattan is now being held on $110,000 cash bail.
The coward's defense attorney argued the state's case was circumstantial and speculative, certainly not the stuff of probable cause. I disagree. In my opinion, the couple were having marital problems.
Suzanne Grattan sought legal advice. George Gratta was angry. He killed Suzanne and hid her body thinking it would never be discovered.
The majority of these murders are often a reaction by the alleged offender. Angry because the person has rejected them and wishes to leave the relationship and move on with their lives. Another motive is financial and custody of the children. They would rather murder someone than split up property and child custody. George Grattan is no different then any other abuser.
He fits the profile like rotten leftover's in the refrigerator.
