It doesn't say in your article, but it was initially reported that he was "kicking himself" for not going on the jog with his wife because he was going bicycling or something with his brother. No mention of that story anymore or alibi
Bearing in mind nothing has been proven but this update surprised me. Watching this story unfold on TV I never would have thought Mark Hacking had anything to do with his wife's disappearance now I'm not that sure. No wonder the police always suspect family members first, so often they are right.
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The families of Mark Hacking and his missing wife were stunned to learn just moments before their news conference that he had not graduated from college or been accepted at a medical school, as he had said.
"We were of the impression that he had graduated from the University of Utah recently, and just found out a few minutes ago that he never applied to medical school in North Carolina," Douglas Hacking, the visibly shaken father of Mark Hacking, told the news conference Wednesday.
