New details by the county DA

According to the DA saying the daughter told him that she’ll call in and that her mom was missing. He allegedly told her what is best based on a grand jury report. Remarked that her mom going missing is very uncanny and unlike her to run off.

It was learned that Elizabeth would not do anything without telling her daughter her whereabouts and plans as well. One fact is the deceased mom would not leave her mother, who stayed in close by nursing home included in the grand jury report.

Last October 12, Stephen Capaldi got an interview and told the Bucks County detectives what he thought. He stated that Elizabeth left of her own volition with no idea where his wife had gone as well.

But the detectives had doubts and learned he lied to them, and surrendered his phone which added to suspicions. In the end, a husband who is accused of murder, also chopping up his wife’s body cannot avoid justice.
