This story wrapped up earlier this year, but I only just read about it, and searching for it on FJ, it doesn't look like it was posted. This story has everything-- estranged families, custody battles, incompetent investigators, a pathologist blamed for wrongful convictions, and off-the-grid mommy bloggers! I don't think Melissa Merritt is necessarily a fundie or quiver-full-- her blog is in a godawful cursive font so I can't even read it. But their off-the-grid self-sufficient seven-kids lifestyle thing is what made me think FJ would enjoy this story! Melissa and Caleb met in 2000, married and had kids. Caleb drank too much and was violent, ultimately causing the death of a cab driver while he was driving drunk, so Melissa left him. She met a new guy, Chris, and went on to have more children with him. I thought this was going to be your typical jealous ex/family annihilator story, but it was like, the EXACT OPPOSITE. Strap yourselves in because this is a bumpy ride.
