He said that Dr. Azevedo continued on saying his wife Marie had accused him of beating their children with chains, the result of which was he was compelled to psychiatric counseling by the courts. He also said that Dr. Azevedo told him that he was very fond of his children and would do anything to get custody of them. Staring at the police with cold eyes, Dr. Azevedo said, I will see to my children, but police noticed he showed little concern for the disappearance of his former wife. During the course of the investigation we learned that her husband had battered her and her children for years. On several occasions she tried to leave him, but he would always find her and bring her and the children home. Then after a while the battering would start all over again.

Spiller’s 2003 book has a chapter titled “The Antifreeze Murder (Shawneetown, IL),” which details how Charles H. Ellis murdered his father in 1986. Dentist Allen Azevedo, the husband of the victim, immediately became a suspect as police probed into the homicide case. Although, they learned that the dentist had an airtight alibi.

Murder is considered a crime of passion. The altercations often trivial to anyone but those involved: quarrels over money or girlfriends.

The woman did say that she spoke with Marie at some length about a week before her disappearance. Marie told her that she was divorcing her husband because of excess mental abuse and to protect her children. She said Marie also told her Dr. Azevedo had accused her of being too much like an American and not being faithful. She said she never heard nor had Marie ever tell her that Dr. Azevedo had threatened her. The tragedy of this case didn’t end here. During the trial one of the sons, who was now fifteen years old, listened to the evidence and realized that his father had killed his mother and got away with it. He obtained a gun and while his dad was taking a nap in his dentist office, he shot and killed him. The young man loaded the body into a car, but was caught when his car broke down before he could dispose of the body. Police rushed to the scene. The officers approached the vehicle. A female fully clothed was slumped over the steering wheel of the car. She appeared to have been dead for several days. Police detected that there were several bullet holes in the clothing of her upper torso. The front doors of the vehicle were standing open, and it appeared that she had been shot from both sides of the station wagon execution style.
