  1. After reading the book, Dancing with Death, I can’t understand why Marjorie hated Jay so much. Alot of women would be glad to have a husband or boyfriend like Jay was. He loved people. He was not selfish. Reading this makes me appreciate my husband all the more.

    Larry Weisberg was and is completely and totally innocent of the murder. He, like Jay Orbin, was a nice guy who fell sucker for a narcissistic sociopath. If anything, I believe Marjorie planned to kill Jay for a long time and decided to take up with Larry in order to set him up. I don’t see how anybody could possibly believe her after watching that video “diary.”

    as a battered woman, and a mother, I found Marjorie’s reaction to the photo of her husband’s torso, believable and shocking. I know, in the same situation, I would have done anything to protect my son. She made errors, having an affair with a brutal, violent man, however, the police should never have given her boyfriend immunity so that he could make self-serving claims about his lack of involvement. This is a shocking case. Many victims, especially the child. But, I believe Marjorie, and I think she protected her son the best way she knew how.

    I hope and pray that at least some of these comments were submitted by elementary school students. That way I will not have such a hopeless outlook for the state of our current education system. Spelling in some cases is unbelievable and in others not one coherent, complete sentence can be found. If I am wrong about the authors of these comments in question, then be very afraid!

    P. S. She did it!
