Tiffany Hartley: Murder in Mexico and President Obama

A cold blooded person usually takes their victim and kills in familiar surroundings.  Whether it be places where they grew up, vacationed, hiked or lived, it is specific to either their life or where they spent time together before a murder. In my opinion, Tiffany Hartley is no different from the men who murder their wives.

I understand people deal with trauma differently, and I am here to tell you that anyone who had just witnessed their husband murdered before their eyes is not able to articulate anything other then inaudible speech.  As I have always said, and this also applies to myself, victims of this type of trauma have a total recall to detail.  A person's trauma is attached and associated directly to the event.   I understand forms of grief and reaction are not a gauge to point fingers or accuse a person of murder, but when you have been looking at cases of intimate partner violence as many years as I, you can smell it on someone when their story is bullshit as sure as you can smell a skunks scent.

A person who has experienced a violent death says, "please help me, my husband, oh my God we have to find him,"  and total focus is only on the loved one. Tiffany and David Hartley were sweethearts since high school!  The sentences she speaks are rehearsed words by someone who is covering up for what really happend to David, period. The words are not of a traumatized person who, moments before, looked death in the eye (her words) down a gun barrel herself. It is not possible.

In addition, Tiffany was very familiar with the area and she spoke the language.  She and her husband lived not far in Texas from where David Hartley died in foreign waters. What did Tiffany do with her time? Was she employed? Did she have a lot of free time to herself? Did she get involved with groups that advocated changes to our borders? Were she and David involved in something over their heads and something went wrong?

I can tell you from first hand experience, Tiffany's sudden expertise on borders issue, pirates and the drug cartel, and saying, in the same sentence, what President Obama needs to be doing, is from an individual who has long been involved in the movement, behind closed doors.  Watch as the unlikely widow articulates foreign policy, listen to the enthusiam in her words during interviews. Now she is doing presentations with law enforcement in Colorado and other places on border patrol issues and our government. In less than 30 days Tiffany Hartley has gone from "International Widow" to an expert on our waters and borders? 
She also has an amazing website titled "Bring David Home" ( ) and although I agree we should understand the implications to Americans as it relates to our borders-- using David Hartley to further ones cause and solicit donations, speaks volumes to what her motive is to switch gears by disarming the country away from the truth of what really happend with her husband. 

Although you could believe after reading yesterday's and today's post that I am on the attack, that is not my objective. It is to merely show the facts and to inform the general public that no one is immune from killing their loved one, be it a woman or a man. 

Wendy Murphy, former prosecutor and now a Fox News legal analyst, has also been under public attack for writing and discussing the Tiffany Hartley case.  Many who commented on the article at Fox felt that Wendy Murphy, without facts, is in attack mode of the "poor grieving widow." 

Another blog site by the name of Statement Analysis ( did an analysis HERE on the Hartley case and I am hoping you will take time to read it to understand the real issues behind this so called "grieving widow."

There are other experts who have come to the conclusion that Tiffany Hartley is lying, such as Dr. Lillian Glass and others who you can find by simply googling

In real time, we have watched a story unfold, literally before our eyes, of a woman "claiming" her husband was murdered in a random isolated incident.  If we had watched the exact same story unfold, and it was a man talking about his wife, the public's reaction would be very different.  

And folks, that is my point!

I'm not so sure this has to do with Tiffany being a woman. Remember, the public has more experience with men committing these types of crimes because as a gender they do so with more frequently than women. Look at the public's reaction to Susan Smith and Andrea Yates as an example. I think the majority of the public thinks her story is fishy, but the media have bought it hook, line, and sinker. And that's a whole other story for another time.

This whole story is obviously staged. Someone needs to start examining how she benefits- money? fame? freedom? This death (or disapearance) wasn't done in anger, so this took planning on her part. What is the motive? What clues did she leave? The answer is out there somewhere

I so agree with this blog entry. I have felt from the first day that a husband returning to shore without his wife would have faced a whole different reaction from the public.

I'm somewhat surprised and dismayed that the FBI and the Mexican authorities investigations of her "story" haven't led to pressure on her or charges. Her husband is allegedly seen in a traffic stop surveillance video minutes prior to this fatal event, then he's never seen again, & there's no body. How is he not put into the Missing Persons database & a polygraph/voice stress analysis test not conducted on her, given the "she said" one-sided circumstances ? I don't get it, I really don't. As for the media -- it's all about ratings, sensationalism, & if it can be tied however remotely to some contentious issue & politics, so much the better for MSM (mainstream media).
Where are HIS parents, objecting to the David Hartley not being placed in the Missing Database? I don't "get" their behavior either, but if manipulated by Tiffany Hartley, then it's somewhat more understandable but not really. That's THEIR SON! MISSING! NO BODY!
Unless, she really didn't hire someone to kill him & he's alive & well, & waiting for life insurance to pay her/them & they're hooking up later, & the parents are "aware."
