Man Kills Wife on Alaska Cruise Ship
« on: July 28, 2017, 09:16:05 AM »
She wouldn't stop laughing at him.  Sounds like the marriage may have been a bit dysfunctional.  But the article does not delve into much beyond the route of the cruise ship, a bloody crime scene, where they were from (Utah), and the confession of the husband.  As is often the case, I wish I knew more about the psychological dynamics at play.  Granted, the investigation is more important than the psychology, at least from the perspective of a criminal investigation.  But a husband should learn how to be laughed at by his wife for being an idiot if that sort of thing is integral to the marriage.  It's also kind of shitty to laugh at ones' spouse.  But sheesh, things do get out of control.

A man was charged today with killing his wife aboard a Princess Cruises ship in Alaska, according to federal court documents.

Kenneth Manzanares has been detained and faces murder charges in the death of his 39-year-old wife, who is identified by the initials K.M., according to a criminal complaint filed today in federal court by the FBI. A source with knowledge of the FBI's investigation told ABC News that the victim was Kristy Manzanares of Utah.

Princess Cruises said a domestic dispute occurred Tuesday night and resulted in the woman's death. The FBI said that it is investigating the "suspicious" death and that it dispatched teams from Anchorage and Seattle to Juneau and Utah to speak with the deceased's family. The agency has jurisdiction in this case, it said, because the death happened on the water.

The incident occurred while the cruise was traveling from Ketchikan to Juneau, acting U.S. Attorney for Alaska Bryan Schroder said in a press conference Thursday afternoon.

According to an affidavit by FBI Special Agent Michael Watson, security and medical personnel "responded to an incident" in the cabin occupied by the Manzanareses aboard the Emerald Princess on Tuesday just after 9 p.m. local time, when the ship was seven miles off the coast of Forrester Island.

She was found with a severe head wound, and blood was spattered throughout the cabin, according to the court documents. She was pronounced dead at approximately 9:20 p.m. local time, the court documents state.

The FBI was then notified of the incident at 11 p.m., an agency spokesperson said in a press conference Thursday.

The FBI was then notified of the incident at 11 p.m., so I suppose it's the night crew, although it still might be light at 11 PM in Juneau.  I wonder if you could rent that room cheaper on the next cruise?  The cruise company should disclose that information to customers, just in case the murder had something to do with the room.

Interesting the husband laments his life is over. He had a choice in the matter his wife clearly didn't. I assume in moments of complete rage there is a disconnect between the action (killing someone) and the consequences (jail for life).

And they were on vacation having fun.

Does that mean the cost of the room is HIGHER or LOWER?  Some of us like good bargains.  House prices go down if there is a murder involved but destination prices go up.

I got a good deal on a house because it is in a "cancer dome". I have cancer now. I have the same cancer I had before I moved in.

See, it prevented you getting additional cancers.  Too bad it didn't cure the one you already had ;-(

Well now, there is proof locations aren't contagious!  BTW, I'm sorry you have a cancer.  I'm sure you know it happens to the very best of us!
