Two weeks after telling police that her son had been snatched from his crib, Melinda Duckett found herself reeling in an interview with TV's famously prosecutorial Nancy Grace. Before it was over, Grace was pounding her desk and loudly demanding to know: "Where were you? Why aren't you telling us where you were that day?"
A day after the taping, Duckett, 21, shot herself to death, deepening the mystery of what happened to the boy.
It is, of course, hard not to wonder what Duckett's reasons were here or why she was evasive about her whereabouts, and of course she chose to go on the show and all that. Even so, this is a horrible outcome and not exactly the first time Grace has pushed a subject controversially on air (Elizabeth Smart being the most recent example). Maybe we're being a bit mean in called Grace a monster. But we're still not as mean as she is.
