feeling good about this, obviously wanted michelle back home safe and sound, what it told you that this was no longer a missing persons case, that it was a murder? >> we are not happy that we were correct. this is a tragedy across the board, mostly for the family but the painstaking work of the investigators and outside agencies. the reality is, when new evidence up front that we could not put out and cannot put out for fear of compromising the prosecution but we did know things. some things we shared with the family and some things we have to keep to ourselves. we knew there reasonably early on there was a great likelihood that machel met a demise. >> giselle esteban is the suspect in this case. she was three months pregnant when she allegedly committed the murder. any reaction to what is going on with her?
