27. You're not the only one who thinks it's weird about the husband.
Certainly, some people are so technically challenged or are mentally unable to do things like imagine scenarios, prepare for normal things like power outages, etc., but when he KNOWS his wife's life depends on electric power, it is very suspicious that he did everything to make sure that, one day, she wouldn't have power.

It also would be worth knowing exactly how disabled the poor woman was. If she could get up at all, one would think that she herself would have called 911. So I'd make sure the autopsy checked for any heavy tranquilizers.
