When the police started asking questions, Jean Taylor changed into a woman with the ability to carry on when bad things began to happen. But that woman's husband died last week, and Jean doesn t have to be her anymore. There's a lot Jean hasn t said over the years about the crime her husband was suspected of committing. She was too busy being the perfect wife, standing by her man while living with the accusing glares and the anonymous harassment.
